7 Challenging Capricorn Traits and How to Overcome Them ...

By Alicia

Being a Capricorn means that you have a lot of wonderful personality traits to enjoy. You’re practical and responsible among many other positive things. These’re some Capricorn traits that can be challenging to deal with. The good news is that all of them can be overcome if you want to do that.

1 Being Too Reserved

It’s not a bad thing to be reserved. You’re entitled to decide who you open up to. But the downside is that if you don’t open up to anyone then you’re risking pushing people away. Try opening up just to those closest to you. It can make your relationships better as well as much deeper.

2 Detached

As a Capricorn you can come across as being detached from people and situations. Emotional involvement isn’t easy for you. However, this may make you seem as if you’re uncaring about the things that others are going through. You can work on this by trying extra hard to be empathetic to what others are dealing with in their lives. This’s something that’ll certainly be appreciated.

3 Self-centered

While you’re great at knowing where boundary lines are and what is and isn’t your responsibility, you can come off a bit self-centered if you aren’t careful. You’re good at focusing on the things that only impact you. That isn’t terrible but it may give an impression to others that you don’t want them to have. Try to reach out a bit more. Let others share things they’re facing in their lives with you and show that you care about those things.

4 Stubborn

Capricorns can struggle with stubbornness in different areas of their lives. It’s good to know what you stand for but you don’t want to be closed-minded, either. The trick is to find a happy medium between those two lines of thought. Know what you stand for but be open to listening to the viewpoints of others. You never know, their way could offer you some valuable points to ponder. You could find better choices for your life if you’re not closed off to considering them.

5 Distrusting

Being skeptical is a good thing. It can prevent you from being the victim of a scam among other things. But you don’t want that to go too far. There needs to be a circle of people that you do trust. Being distrusting of those closest to you can hurt your relationships.

6 Overly Sensitive

Capricorns are known for being overly sensitive. A lot of times you may be hurt when someone truly didn’t mean to hurt you feelings at all. To overcome this, realize that sometimes you may misunderstand others or take their intentions wrong. Try to give others the benefit of the doubt. It can save you a lot of heartache.

7 Unemotional

A Capricorn can come across as unemotional and unfeeling at times. That doesn’t mean that either of those things is true; it’s just an impression you may unintentionally give. While you’re great at knowing how to tuck your emotions away to deal with later, be sure to let others know that you do care about them or the situation you’re dealing with together. Telling others how you feel can show that you care, too. Those close to you want to know how you’re feeling.

These’re 7 challenging traits you may have if you’re a Capricorn. Which of these do you see in yourself? You’re welcome to share your thoughts.
