“Release the toxic and infectious-
Spreaders of misery,
Souls destroying souls-
And poisonous liars.
Awaken from the hallucinations-
And take back your heart.
Reclaim your self-esteem-
And leave the toxic be.”
― Giorge Leedy.
Are there people in your life who are a constant source of nothing but complaint? Do you feel you are happier without them around? Sociopaths, narcissists, compulsive liars, manipulators, these are people who do you more harm than good, who cause more stress in your life than comfort; always questioning you and making you doubt yourself. Whether it’s your work or home environment, you will bump into people who are filled with negative energy. They fuel themselves with all the negativity around and spew it on anyone any chance they get and if you let them, they will dump it on you.
Here are some of the signs that you let the toxic people in your life, get under your skin:
Talking about them.
Wasting precious time and energy gossiping about a toxic person and discussing them with people who are close to you, gives them power over you. Why let them get the best of you? They already love being the center of attention, and by talking about them you are making your world revolve around them, which is exactly what they want in the first place. Instead of talking about the toxic people, talk to someone close about how you feel and ask for them to listen to you and give you advice on how to cope with such people.
