It is not that difficult to spot a toxic person. If you are in doubt, just observe their behavior: they are usually egoistic, manipulative and self-centered. We all know at least one narcissist. And it doesn’t matter if we live or work with them — it can be very hard to deal with such people on a regular basis.

Choose your INNER CIRCLE and your friends wisely because not only will they motivate you to achieve your dreams, but they also can make or break you. Don’t let these types of people drag you down and hold you back. You’ve got success to grab.

They will:

1. Demean your value

2. Destroy your image

3. Drive you crazily!

4. Dispose of your dreams!

5. Discredit your imagination!

6. Deframe your abilities

7. Disbelieve your opinions!

Stay away from them.

1. The Liar

If a person lies to you for the first time, forgive them. If a person lies to you for the second time, avoid them.

Never lie to someone who trusts you.

Never trust someone who lies to you.

2. The Gossiper

“Great minds discuss ideas, average ones discuss events, and small minds discuss people.”

They also have an uncanny ability to put your success in danger. Stay away from the gossip. They’re unkind, unproductive, and will hurt your chances of success.

Be Aware Toxic People can Suck Blood Out Of You.

5. The Complainer

There’s nothing more annoying than the complainer. The complainer doesn’t realize that almost all of the stuff they complain about is 100% within their ability to change. Yet they never try. Stay away from these people. They drain you quicker than you think.

6. The Lazy

There’s nothing wrong with enjoying some time off, but at some point, you have to hop back on the productivity train.

7. The Needy

They are continually asking for something or the other. It starts with something small and may end up with something big like financial help, materials, etc. It would help if you stayed away from habitually needy people for your own good.

8. The Insecure

They don’t believe in their self-growth instead focus on other people’s destruction. Insecurity and the lack of trust is the root cause of destroying relationships.

“People outwardly project their innermost insecurities.”
Kilroy J. Oldster, Dead Toad Scrolls

9. The Victim

One of the most dangerous people you can have around you is the perpetual victim. Perpetual victims look at their own issues and mistakes and always find others to blame. They never take ownership of their own lives.

“Playing the victim role: Manipulator portrays him- or herself as a victim of circumstance or of someone else’s behavior in order to gain pity, sympathy or evoke compassion and thereby get something from another. Caring and conscientious people cannot stand to see anyone suffering and the manipulator often finds it easy to play on sympathy to get cooperation.”
George K. Simon Jr., In Sheep’s Clothing: Understanding and Dealing with Manipulative People

10. The Self-Absorbed

Self-Absorbed people believe in “ME” and not “WE.” They don’t show interest in the rest of the world. Their own emotions, feelings, actions, comfort, needs, etc. should always be prioritized.
