What would you do without your friends? Your life would be a lot less exciting with fewer memories and laughter. But some friends can be hard work, especially when they show you the other side of their character.
Your star sign holds the key to your good and not-so-good traits, especially when it comes to friendship. So, what is your worst trait as a friend according to your zodiac sign?
Aries (March 21 – April 19)
Your friends find it faintly ridiculous how impatient you are and how you move from one activity to another. Not everyone has your high energy Aries; some of your mates need time to recover and rejuvenate. Don't go too fast or you might miss something valuable too.
HINT: You are wearing your friends' nerves to a frazzle with your high energy and impatient behavior – slow down and enjoy life.
Taurus (April 20 – May 20)
Thank goodness you light up the room, a redeeming feature considering how stubborn you are. It is very wearing trying to get Taurus to do something they don't want to. Compromising isn’t in your nature, yet it is a skill that your friends would love you to learn.
HINT: Practice not digging your heels in and having a healthy discussion with your friends instead.
Gemini (May 21 - June 20)
You are so much fun… except when you allow it to become all about flakiness and unreliability. Unfortunately, you have your own schedule that is so different to what everyone else wants, so you often turn up too late (if you show up at all).
HINT: Try to be better at arriving on time…
Cancer (June 21 – July 22)
Admit it, you have a habit of falling deep into doom and gloom when stuff just isn’t going your way. You are at your worse when you are going through a breakup. Yes, your heart is broken but this doesn’t mean you have to suck all the positivity out of life, including that of your friends.
HINT: Focus on the good things in life because even when the grey cloak of a break up is shrouding your vision, there is good stuff still out there.
Leo (July 23 – Aug 22)
You love being the star of the show, the person to whom everyone looks and admires. But there is a problem with this: when someone else dares to steal your limelight, your face turns red. This can be really annoying for your friends, so try to accept the fact that there will be times when you won't be the center of attention.
HINT: your Friends would love it if you were a little more generous and show consideration of others and allow them to be in the spotlight for a while.
Virgo (August 23 - September 22)
Your attention to detail will get you places, but here’s the thing – it can soon turn from attention to detail to obsessive nit-picking over the smallest thing. Your expectation for everything to be perfect and flawless all of the time is driving your friends mad. You need to lighten up and let the serious side of you go every now and then.
HINT: Your friends need you to understand that life is not perfect. Get over it!
Libra (September 23 – October 22)
If there is one zodiac sign that is insecure about themselves and what they can offer people, including their friends, it is Libra. Unsure how they will keep friends because they are not funny enough/ beautiful enough/ nice enough/ deserving enough are insecurities that your friends find difficult to cope with from time to time.
HINT: Appreciate the wonderful gifts and talents you have, and don’t assume that everything is going to end badly.
Scorpio (October 23 - November 21)
It is an ugly word – manipulation – but it is something that you have mastered. Your friends love you, so you don’t need to manipulate into doing things for them. Your lack of honesty (sometimes!) is problematic, especially if you keep doing it over and over again.
HINT: Play nice. Be nice.
Sagittarius (November 22 - December 21)
Tact is not everyone’s strong point and for Sagittarius, it certainly isn’t. For your friends, your tactlessness is simply excruciating. Although they love you most of the time, when you're inconsiderate and you keep saying mean things, being your friend is really difficult.
HINT: Think before you speak and try not to leap in as soon as something needs saying. Sometimes, things are better left unsaid.
Capricorn (December 22 - January 19)
You have trust issues, you know that. And for your friends, this ‘closing off’ makes you hard to reach, especially at times when you really do need their love and support. Once they have your trust, you are a true and loyal friend, but you need to understand that gaining this trust is a difficult task.
HINT: Try opening up a little every now and then.
Aquarius (January 21 - February 18)
Did someone upset you? While you may have a valid point, what your friends find difficult is the way in which you react. You are an adult – pouting, tantrums, not being willing to work out problems is childish! But that is how you react. You just want to avoid the problem in any way you can.
HINT: Stuff needs to be dealt with but in the right way.
Pisces (February 19 - March 20)
You need to take control when it comes to making decisions and stop being easily led by others. You are a happy follower and that's nothing wrong with that, but sometimes you need to stop being blindly led to things that are not good for you.
HINT: You may be a trusting person with a big hard but you need to learn to make smarter decisions.
