Problems will follow you everywhere you go and so do toxic people. One of your aims should be to solve your problems and get rid of the toxic people around you. If you’re unsure who these people are, look for these signs.
1. It’s all about them
Toxic people don’t really care about what you have to tell them. They rarely listen and prefer to talk about themselves. No matter what the topic is, they always find a way to get in the spotlight. For some reason drama seems to follow them everywhere. They tell you about their “problems” to seek your empathy and attention. Again, they get the spotlight.
2. They’re never wrong
Toxic people think they are always right and if you try to disagree they’ll say you’re absolutely wrong. If you try to give them arguments, they get defensive and hurtful. They also consider their own experiences to be gospel. If they don’t like yoga, then you shouldn’t waste your time with it. If their online relationship failed, so will yours. According to them, that is.
3. They lie more than Pinocchio
Toxic people don’t care if their lies are hurting other people as long as they are benefiting them. They’re more focused on the end than the means and they tell all sorts of lies. Even if you confront them and prove their lie, they always find a way to justify themselves. Ah well, just avoid them.'
4. They’re not really nice
Toxic people will tell you what think of you in straightforward, brutal way whether it hurts your or not. They don’t really care and they even boast about their tell-it-like-it-is attitude. If you do the same to them, they get defensive and meaner than usual.
5. They’re controlling
They try to pressure you into doing what they want you to do and push you into being someone you’re not. If you feel like you are being someone else entirely when you are with a certain person, then you should recognize the toxicity and run for your life.
