Toxic people can cause more than their fair share of pain and anxiety in your daily life. Their selfish, narcissistic ways can make your life difficult. The hallmark of a toxic person is that he or she is far more interested in their own advantages than in taking care of others and being supportive. When it is time to get rid of toxic people, you may have a difficult time extracting them from your life. Here are 7 signs that you are dealing with a toxic personality, as well as some hints as to how to remove them from your life.

7 Alarming Signs You Are Dealing with Toxic People

1. You Often Lose Your Temper with Them

Toxic personalities love to push other people’s buttons. When you are dealing with a destructive personality, you will often find yourself angry or frustrated by their constant need for drama. They can cause you to lose control of yourself when your emotions boil over. If you often find yourself blowing up at a person, it’s worthwhile to examine whether or not they might be a toxic person.

2. They Are Always the Victim

In any given situation, toxic people will paint themselves as the helpless victim. Nothing negative that happens to them is ever their fault. Whenever you have dealings with this person, they will try to blame their problems on everyone else, including you. This can be extremely stressful to deal with.

At the same time, you may find yourself blaming the toxic person for everything that is going wrong in your life. If you catch yourself thinking this way, it’s a sign that this person has too much influence in your life. Consider whether it is time to get rid of toxic people in your life.

3. They Damage Your Self-Esteem

A toxic person is always looking for ways to bring other people down. They use rude and degrading language, and they often search for our weaknesses so they can hit us where it hurts. If you always feel bad about yourself after you have dealings with this person, it’s likely that they are a toxic personality.

4. They Can’t Let Go of Negative Feelings

If a person in your life constantly ruminates over things that have gone wrong, they may be unhealthy to spend time with. Since toxic people exist to cause drama, they can’t let go of these perceived slights and injuries. Even if you’re not personally affected by these problems, they may rope you into emotional sympathy with them. Getting you invested in their problems is a sign they might be toxic.
