Toxic people can poison your mind, heart, and life. And it is important to identify them so that you can protect yourself from their negativity, and if possible, to keep them from away from you.

Removing Toxic People from Your Life

Whether we realize this or not, the people we spend our time with play a huge role in the quality of our happiness, health, and well-being. And if we surround ourselves with all kinds of toxic people, we risk losing ourselves and our path in life as a result of the poison that continues to spread in our minds, bodies, and souls each time we interact with these people.

The first step toward removing toxic people from your life is to identify them. And hopefully, after reading this list of 10 types of toxic people you should stay away from, you will take the necessary steps to help you move in that direction.

1. Chronic opinion givers

Opinion givers are those toxic people who are always quick to share their sneaky and poisonous thoughts with you on topics that are sensitive to you.

Even if you never ask for their advice and opinions, they will make sure you hear what they have to say. And if you watch them closely as they share their “valuable insights”, you will notice this smirk on the face. These toxic people feed with the pain of their victims and take great delight in poisoning your mind. So please, stay away from them. And always remember:

“An insincere and evil friend is more to be feared than a wild beast; a wild beast may wound your body, but an evil friend will wound your mind.” ~ Unknown

2. People playing the victim game

If you’re reading this blog, chances are that you are a good person with a big heart who loves to be of service and who want to help those in need of help.

But be careful.

There are people out there who don’t want to be helped – they might look like they need help, but they don’t really want to be helped – they just want to play the victim game so that you will feel sorry for them.

Pity is the energy they feed with. And by you pitying them, they are in fact taking energy out of your body and your own life and using it in a way that’s not really beneficial for any of you. So please, take your energy back and stay away from these toxic people.

3. Needy people

You know the saying, give a man a fish and you feed him for a day; teach a man how to fish, and you feed him for a lifetime? Well, needy people don’t want you to teach them how to fish. They just want you to give them your daily fish and be there for them nonstop.

And if you dare to create some space between you and them to live your life, they will use all the tools they have at their disposal to make you feel sorry, guilty, and ashamed. And trust me, they’re really good at what they do. So please, do yourself a favor and remove these toxic people from your life.

4. Complainers

We all have ups and downs and we all have moments when we want to talk to somebody about our problems. But to be around someone who complains nonstop about everything and everyone, that is exhausting.

Complainers take the life out of your life by constantly pointing out what is wrong with the whole world. And if you value your health, sanity, happiness, and well-being, you should stay away from these types of people.

5. Blamers

People who constantly point the finger by blaming their parents, partner, children, boss, workers, society, and the whole world for how miserable and unhappy their lives are, are people who haven’t yet learned to assume responsibility for their own lives. And if they point out the finger at others, they will eventually point out the finger at you as well. Stay away from them.

6. Manipulative People

It can be quite a challenge to identify these people immediately, especially if they are really close to us. They know what to say when to say it, and they seem to do all things perfectly. And even though your eyes may not see them for who they truly are, your intuition will somehow know something is off – your gut will send you all kind of signals that something is wrong – and if you choose to listen to your heart and follow your intuition, you will save yourself from a whole lot of pain, drama, and misfortune.

Keep your eyes wide open. Trust your instincts. And stay away from these toxic people.
