Today, we shall look at some types of people you need to avoid. We are surrounded by all types of people. While no two individuals are the same. Sadly, there are way too many people that can be classified as toxic. Even minimal interaction with toxic people can have a huge impact on performance and happiness. So what can you do about it? Simple, just try to stay away from these types of negative people as much as you can.
Below are some of the types of people you need to avoid.
Note, this is part one of a two-part series.
Everyone has flaws. And when someone points them out, it can help you improve yourself. However, you should be able to recognise the difference between a person who expresses their concerns honestly and in a constructive manner and those who use your weaknesses as an opportunity to attack you. If you know someone who is quick to point out and criticise your mistakes, but never seems to recognise your accomplishments, they are the type of toxic person who is likely to eventually wear you down.
To envious people, the grass is always greener somewhere else. Even when something great happens to them they don’t derive any satisfaction from it. This is because they measure their fortune against other people. And let’s face it, there’s always someone out there who’s doing better. Spending too much time around envious people is dangerous because they teach you to trivialize your own accomplishments.
These are the people who just want to sit around all day and be served by others so they don’t have to lift a finger. They want you to be there for them non stop and if you dare try to point out their wrongdoings they know how to make you feel guilty and ashamed. So if there’s someone in your life with similar traits, you should try to avoid them.
These kinds of people tend to see only the negative side of everything. They always ignore the bright side of things and deliberately try to bring others down. It’s like they decided for themselves that everything in life is bad and by blocking out any positive emotions they will avoid getting hurt, but they just end up hurting others instead.
It’s best to stay away from pessimists. They will only fill you with negativity and despair.
Little White Lies usually aren’t harmful. And most people do it every now and then. For example, when you throw a surprise party for someone, you have to lie a little to keep it a surprise right. But there are many habitual liars who will lie to make themselves feel better or to look better in others’ eyes. Toxic people lie frequently to destroy you. They leave you with no room for trust in a relationship. In order to grow you have to surround yourself with trustworthy people who will support you and offer honest opinions.
