Friends and relatives have a huge impact on our lives. So when we have toxic and negative individuals you begin to form resentments. Resentments make you feel bad about yourself, and nobody wants to feel resentments. There are times however, when we can’t avoid being around these negative and toxic individuals so what do we do and how do we remove them from our life?
Surround Yourself With Positive Friends
Toxic people are harmful, but positive friends are helpful. The more positive the friend is the more likely the negative individual is going to stay away from you. “Stay close to the people who make you feel happy” – Power Of Positivity
Turn Your Attention To Positive Things
Stay close to positive things and positive people. Keep your mind of the negative people. As you start looking towards the positive they will start to dissipate from your life.
Understand And Own Up To Your Weaknesses
Knowing what you are weak at will help you understand why toxic people surround you. It will also make you self aware and help you improve on yourself. It will also help you avoid being manipulated because of your weaknesses.
Knowing your own boundaries is key in setting up who you are as an individual. But setting them up is especially important to keep toxic people out of and remove them from your life. Letting them know your boundaries will keep them at a distance and help you in the long run.
Have confidence in who you are. Who you want to be. Who you want and don’t want in your life. Don’t be afraid to speak your mind and let people know when they are over stepping your boundaries.
Back to having confidence. Don’t be afraid to speak up. Speak your mind and let the toxic individuals know that you don’t enjoy their company and don’t want to be around them.
We all have them in our life. They often cause us undeniable emotional damage to our lives. It is best if we just separate contact with them. Forever, or until they change their ways. There are 8 different arc-types of toxic people.
One Who Overly Criticizes
They suffer from a poor sense of self and self-esteem. For some reason it seems they improve their sense of self by criticizing others. Stay away from them, they make you feel inadequate.
One Who Wastes Our Time
Other individuals may take extreme pleasure and value in your time. These individuals do not. Seeking out attention is what they are good at. Better at nothing rather than wasting our time.
One Who Continually Disappoints
Everyone doesn’t meet expectations now and then. We all disappoint. When it becomes a constant battle uphill with this individual is when it becomes a burden on us.
One Who Constantly Self-Redirects
Self centeredness definitely describes this individual. They redirect conversations serious or not to revolve around themselves. They aren’t much of a giver in a relationship, they tend to be takers.
One Who Is Always Indifferent
We want to feel loved in our relationship. Not just feel tolerated. Those who are indifferent often just become comfortable with us and tolerate our existence. They don’t reciprocate our feelings of love. They just show indifference.
One Who Is Excessively Jealous
Being envious occasionally is a part of life. However, being excessively jealous is not. An individual who is excessively jealous is rarely grateful. They often scorn those for success.
One Who Is Profusely Negative
Negativity is contagious. None of us, mental illness or not, need any more negativity in our lives. This arc-type is very obvious. They are constantly complaining and whining. They are often void of positive energy, unless things are absolutely perfect.
One Who “Plays The Victim Card”
One who holds grudges and often plays the victim card is a tell tale sign of this toxic arc-types. They act very childish at times and know how to manipulate to get their way.
