Say No To Toxic People And Lead Happier Lives

Posted: January 7, 2019

It does no good to bear toxic people who hamper your well-being. Throw them away from your life, says the author.

“You can’t change someone who doesn’t see an issue in their actions.” – Unknown

If a person disregards your feelings, ignores your boundaries, and continues to treat you in a harmful way, they need to go away from your life. -Daniell Koepke

Say ‘No’ to toxic people! It is for your own good, for your own mental peace as for how long will you hold onto someone, thinking they would understand you or be happy seeing you grow as a person. Not everyone you meet in your life will be happy to see you excel. This is a sad fact of life.

Toxic People are the ones, instilled with two unique characteristics, Jealousy, and Judgement. People who are jealous of you are highly toxic, the reason being- they have so many complexes within them, that when they see someone else doing good things, they cannot digest. Over the time they have built up so much of self-hatred, (which they do not realize) that they see bad in every other person around them. From jealousy comes judgement, validation, criticism. They feel that everyone around them is awful and lacking in some or the other way.

We all come across such people in our lives, no matter in what profession we are or which place we belong to. They have this immense power to make your life living hell just by their negative vibes around you.

You know it’s time to cut down such people from your life when you have an unhealthy coping mechanism and you see your self-esteem dwindling. You see yourself going a few steps back from where you traveled this far, you realize you have been unhappy in their presence. You find it very difficult to make them understand and lose your temper.

So identify those toxic elements in your life and learn to detach from them, only to attach yourself to higher aspirations in life.

“Dear Self: Stop re-opening your doors for toxic people, then calling it “seeking closure”. Certain things don’t work out in life and that’s ok” – Reyna Biddy
