It's not your problem! 11 Ways in which toxic people influence your life
Don't you absorb the states of others like a sponge? This greatly affects your quality of life. The truth is that toxic people do not like to be responsible for their own choices, their own lives. That's why they are very good at blaming other people for the problems they have. Learn to refuse them.
Toxic people steal your time, energy, happiness, peace, even life… without giving anything in return.
Here are the most popular ways, for toxic people to get into your mind and make you think you're the problem:
1. Toxic people make you feel guilty because they're unhappy
They don't like to be responsible for their own choices, their own lives. That's why they are very good at blaming other people for the problems they have.
2. Toxic people make you feel that you are in competition with them.
You often realize that they are positioning themselves in a place of superiority so as to make you feel that you have to fight to be equal to them.
3. Toxic people are obviously not rude, but from their actions, gestures and words you get upset and insulted every time you see them.
You often feel that you react differently when you are around them. Moreover, the conversations with them bother you and upset you because you have the impression that you are pointed the finger at the life you are living.
4. Toxic people have irrational outbursts of anger and in just a few moments they are calm again… that as if nothing had happened
You are quite intimidated by them because they use aggressive techniques to defend themselves. Outbursts of anger are the order of the day for them, but the most interesting thing is that they don't last very long - they soon calm down, become friendly and behave as if nothing had happened.
5. Toxic people make you doubt yourself
They make you feel unworthy of the life you live, of the happiness you feel. Although they do not say these words specifically, their actions clearly show that they think they are better than you in all respects.
6. Toxic people make you take on emotional work for them.
They unload all their problems and burden you with their worries, expecting you to understand them and give them guidance. But when you want help from them, they ignore you and tell you to face the difficulties alone.
7. Toxic people correct you non-stop
If you listen carefully to the conversations you have with them, they do not respond to almost anything you say with signs that they agree with you. They always have to add something to assert themselves or suggest that there is something you don't understand. They are always right.
8. Toxic people only come to you when they need a favor.
And if you can't give them what they need, you'll feel guilty for letting them suffer.
9. Toxic people want to isolate you
They make you feel guilty because you want to spend time with other people or because you are very busy with important things and you don't have time for them.
10. Toxic people do what they want
Some behaviors are unacceptable if they are done by you, but allowed if they are done by them. The situations are always different, and their arguments apply only to them.
11. Toxic people make you doubt yourself
They play so well with your mind that they make you question everything you think you are. This is the first step in your transformation into the worst enemy of your soul and their best ally.
Free yourself from the foreign burden.
