Every case is different, but toxic people can negatively influence others by manipulating them to do things. They tend to create chaos through negative habits: using, lying, stealing, controlling, criticizing, bullying, manipulating, creating drama, etc.
- Getting a toxic person out of your life is all about setting boundaries.
- The Blame Game
No matter how many painful situations a toxic person purposely puts you in, they won’t apologize. They constantly find ways to make you responsible for their actions.
- Walking on Eggshells
Toxic people thrive on keeping you on your toes and use emotional outbursts to do so. You never know what type of mood they’ll be in, and you have to watch what you say around them—or you’ll receive 15 text messages about a molehill of a problem that manifested into a mountain, along with a laundry list of all the reasons you’re a terrible person, your career is going nowhere, and you’re not as good as they are.
Cleanse the toxicity and steer clear of the bullsh*t.
