Each and every one of us has at least one negative personality trait (and let’s be honest, it’s usually more than one). Sometimes, these negative personality traits don’t benefit us at all and harm the relationships we have with others.
For example, some extremely competitive people end up pushing people away because they're constantly instigating annoying arguments about who is right or who is better.
And then there are some people who are total pushovers — those people who NEVER say “no.”
They people end up feeling used or taken advantage of in their relationships because they are always putting in TOO much effort.
These negative things about ourselves can eventually lead to our downfall by threatening our ability to have healthy and satisfying relationships, so it’s important that we recognize these negative qualities so we can change for the better.
Everyone can benefit from a little self-improvement, and no one is an exception to this. After all, no one is perfect, and it’s okay to admit that we all have faults.
The first step to getting better is to recognize that there IS a problem.
So, how do you start identifying these problematic personality traits? Well, first, you can look to astrology.
A lot of people believe the stars have a say in the type of personality we have — and who knows? The stars may be right.
