While this is admirable about their personality, it also makes it easier for others to take advantage of their kindness. Pigs are all the time looking to do a lot for others and to give a hand, even if they’re known to never ask for assistance themselves.

Furthermore, they should be careful with whom they’re trusting and try as much as possible to have a more analytical mind.

There are many people who can influence them in a bad way, especially since they’re always expressing their feelings and don’t mind sharing many of their secrets. It’s essential for these Pigs to talk less about their weaknesses because these discussions can be used against them.

Love & Relationships

As a matter of fact, the right partner can make them achieve great successes in life. This is all happening because they need to feel emotionally secure and to belong to a person.

Of course, being so focused on emotions brings about many problems, one of them having something to do with how sensitive these people are and how a meaningless criticism can upset them very much, no matter how true and honest.

The same emotions can have Water Pigs easy to impress and therefore, the ones of whom others are always taking advantage of. Because they tend to immediately trust people, they are more prone to states of depression and disappointment.

Maybe this is the reason why they’re all the time acting shy at first meetings. Perhaps they’re trying to protect themselves from getting hurt.
