“Often the person is deeply wounded and for whatever reason, they are not yet able to take responsibility for their wounding, their feelings, their needs and their subsequent problems in life.” said Jodie Gale, MA, a psychotherapist and life coach in Sydney, Australia.
Most of people jump to the conclusion that the person as a whole is toxic. It’s the behaviors they exhibit that we need to consider toxic. These types of people have the ability to create irritation and drama in your life that can be avoided easily.
The Wild One.
This specific person has probably annoyed you countless times. I’ve really had some terrible and INSANE experiences with this type of people. That’s the kind of person that loves to party as hard as they can, carelessly and without paying attention to any consequences, they go out and do crazy stuff, and they don’t really care about their own well being or the well being of others.
Not avoiding this person will make you lose your energy, and most importantly, your time.
Oh MY GOD. That type of person that would never stop whining about how everything went wrong in their lives. I mean, complaining is okay, but not on a daily basis, not during each time you meet your friends, not each minute!
It’s true that it’s extremely important to get things out off your chest in order to feel better and have a nice conversation, it may also lead to finding a solution, but complaining in order to gain people’s sympathy or attention is something that nobody would like.
Toxicity level : 100%
During life, we encounter a lot of people who doubt us and question us, and that’s totally okay since it’s an important part of the human nature. These people play a very helpful role and are good sounding boards for our thoughts and can help us improve.
But the bad part about this, the cynic shouldn’t be really confused with that type of people. They try to criticize anything just for the sake of critiques. They can’t add anything to your life except irritation, negative feelings and keep you demotivated.
It’s fine to get mad sometimes since it’s a part of our nature as human beings. But the type of people who seem to be fine during one moment, then they burst like a bomb and destroy everything in their path.
Anger is not simple as you may think, it is a serious problem that needs to get under control, that’s why you need to avoid people who are constantly angry.
The Drama Queen.
You probably experienced this one countless times since drama queens are very numerous nowadays. They seem to be afraid, worried, anxious and freak out over everything. So you don’t need me to tell you how toxic these people are!
It’s a wonder to me why we bother to get to know these people, but we do, and it’s very difficult to cut them out of our lives once we’ve let them in. It’s easy to talk ourselves out of taking this step, but it’s necessary if we want to maintain healthy mental and emotional states. If you’re unsure, here are some ways to spot a toxic person in your life. Make sure you educate others and if you know other people in relationships with a toxic person, be sure they are aware of the signs and behaviors. You could save a life. I know someone saved mine by spreading the message and I hope you’ll be a part of that as well.
