How to identify toxic and negative people in your life

Toxic people are simply negative people. In the year 2019, I want to reach out to people who need to build trust in themselves and love themselves more. The mind is a very important part of our daily living and what we feed it with is what it takes in. Never leave it void, feed it with positive thoughts and one way to do that is by being around the right set people, having the right relationship and marrying the right partner.

Do you know that toxic people are the worst people to be around? They are goal killers, destiny stoppers, unhappy people who think they are happy, proud and the list goes on and on. There are simple ways to spot toxic people in your life. Some of you might be very familiar with this type of people but have overlooked it thinking it's normal either because we are used to them or have been in long term friendship, situationship or relationship with them. It can also be because you are afraid of being lonely but in actual sense, you do not need all these toxic people with bad energy because it is not just about the physical but it goes deeper and can affect you spiritually.

Here are the three groups of toxic people you need to watch out for and get rid of.

Never in agreement with your life goals.
 They never say anything good or accept any suggestions/plans you bring up. This set of people are ever ready to discourage and make you feel your plans are impossible and can never work. They never give an alternative all they do is bring down and condemn every step you try to take forward. I call them goal killers watch out for them and get rid of them.

Non action takers support system.
 In my years of blogging, I have never met anyone who is as passionate as I am towards my blog. I have done it all on my own and I have fallen and gotten up all on my own and I am still moving on. You will say of course it's your business you have to be more passionate about it than any other person, that is totally right but if you do not have people in your life who are at least (5% energy) giving a positive passion and support towards your business or career then you have the wrong people around you.
Note: If the support is one-sided then you should not be that person life. 

I have lots of friends who talk about my blog but never try to share or promote it. Now, this is optional and can be seen from different angles. For me, I don't mind still keeping this person in my life because I have already zeroed them all but the truth is you don't need this type of people in your life. Your friends, family and partners should always stand as a strong support system to any positive thing you are doing.

The problem/issue procrastinators.
These are one of the most ignorant set people I have come across in my life. One thing you should understand about this set of people is that they use every opportunity they get to promote bad memories and bad energy. This mostly happens in friendship and relationships. When you have minor issues with your friend or partner which is supposed to be talked about and sorted out but they prefer to keep silent about it for more than 3 days, then believe me that person doesn't want you to be happy. Here is what a happy and positive person does, they try to fix the situation because they are not used to being in a toxic environment. They always want to be at peace with everyone and promote good energy.
Note: They leave that problem open and leave you in a toxic atmosphere. They go about their normal life because they feel stronger in this atmosphere.

Take, take but they never give
People who keep collecting from you and never give back or return are obstacles in your life. These are people who help demolish and destabilized your plans. You might want to keep this person in your life but if you have to do that then you need to learn how to say no to such people. 
Truth: You don't need such kind of people in your life. Cut them off.

They never compliment you
Now, this is a very easy way to spot jealous people in your life. No matter what you do or how gorgeous you look they will never say a complimenting word. They just stare and process pain and evil. This is common around young adults and youths. Get rid of them before the envy and jealousy becomes uncontrollable and they harm you.

Do not think you can handle any of these situations or ever managing it. When you try to manage bad situations your mind sees them as a practice (remember habits are formed by constantly doing the same thing). You psychologically unknowingly to yourself accept this bad energy and give space toxic behaviours which start seeming normal to you.

  1. Thanks for sharing. I've had a few toxic friendships before.

    Effortlessly Sophisticated

  2. Wonderfully written and helpful post. Thank you for writing this xx Maria

  3. Gran post. Feluz Fin de Semana.

  4. Oh gosh, they can be so hard to handle. I had this friend I was always talking silly stuff with, when out of a sudden he started with all ''how meaningless life is'' quotes, and how it's not worth getting out of the bed in the morning... I've been trough a bad depression in my life and I know how awful you can feel when you are down, but it's just unfair puring that on someone who is actually happy. So eventually, after nothing changed his mind, I started to ignore his messages, but he still kept sending me all those negatives every few days :(



    1. Like they say, you can take the horse to the river but you can not force the horse to drink water. You can try to advice your friend to be positive and try to get him help. If he refuses to get help then you need to stay away from him because you are going to be in a toxic environment and that is nor good for you.

  5. Such an insightful post. Have a great weekend!

  10. Wow, this is such an interesting read! I agree with so many things there! And I definitely experienced some situations! For me sometimes it's hard to admit that some people can really take out your good vibes away (luckily I rare meet such people). But it's so true. My mom also said I was very sensitive to other people from my very childhood. But I guess we all are in a way. I simply always try to follow my intuition, usually you feel if something is off, or maybe after spending time with a person you start feeling down. Anyways, thanks for the great article! <3

  11. So many facts in this post. Love it! I am actually divorcing a toxic person and have ended other toxic relationships as well. I call toxic people joy thieves. Negative and toxic people want to take away from you what they lack. And you are so right, remove them immediately or you’ll pay for it tremendously. Thanks for sharing these wonderful tips.
