Toxicity! Unfortunately, it can also be present outside of food. Unexpectedly, it can also exist in people.
Toxic people are the ones who are not only extremely hard to get along with, but also seem to thrive on causing drama and conflict. They want things their way, no matter what. Some toxic people may even be so aggressive that it makes you wonder if you should avoid them entirely.
These folks are related to every one of us. No matter how we feel about it. It’s important to recognize toxic personalities, or toxic individuals as I prefer to call them. They can be a friend, coworker, or family member who persistently conveys unfavorable sentiment.
If you’re wondering how to identify toxic people in your life, there are certain signs that can help you determine whether someone is truly a toxic person or not. But first, let’s take a look at what exactly it means to be a “toxic person.”
What Is a Toxic People?
A toxic person is someone who has an attitude of entitlement and selfishness — traits that often lead to anger and hurt feelings for others around them. Toxic people tend to have low self-esteem and will act out in order to get what they want from other people. They usually blame others for their problems, rather than looking inward for solutions or taking responsibility for their own actions (whether good or bad).
They Complain Constantly
This is one the most identifying point that they complain constantly and they always try to find something wrong in anything. Toxic person complain about yesterday right from the start of the day. They gripe about their employers, coworkers, families, and general existence. They are very negative, and their attitude makes everyone around them feel bad.
You should always be aware of toxic people in your life because they can ruin your entire day if you let them affect you. If someone is always criticizing you, it’s time for them to leave your life because they are only hurting themselves by being around you.
They Have Extreme level of Jealousy
The first thing you should do if you suspect that someone has a toxic personality, is to avoid them as much as possible.
When someone has a toxic personality, they will be very jealous of anyone who is more successful than them. They will do everything in their power to make sure that no one above them in the social hierarchy ever gets too close to their position.
Toxic person may even try and sabotage other people’s business so that they can appear more successful than they really are.
They Speak bad mouthing to people
An unsettling sign that a person is toxic around you is when they disparage other people. People that are toxic are frequently insecure. Instead of taking actual steps to improve their talents, they frequently speak negatively about others to make themselves feel or appear superior.
They are Judgmental
Toxic people are often judgmental to other persons. Whether they’re making fun of you, or openly criticizing your choices, they are unable to see the value in things that make you happy. People who are toxic believe they have the right to criticize others’ deeds, choices, and lives. They will give you advice whether or not you ask for it, therefore it makes no difference to them.
These people will do anything possible to get your attention, including spreading rumors about you and lying on social media (or even face-to-face).
They can be very convincing in the beginning, but once you realize what’s going on, it’s easy to see through their lies.
They always try to make victims
Toxic people tend to blame others for their own problems and feel no remorse for the damage they cause. They are very good at playing the victim, and this is what makes them so difficult to deal with.
While taking responsibility and being accountable are traits of a successful and informed person, frequently blaming others and refusing to accept responsibility are harmful personality traits. Unhappy people who blame other people or their circumstances for their shortcomings are known as toxic people since they have no desire to change.
