(6) The ones who mansplain women.
You will find mansplainers wherever you go, and they are some of the most toxic people you will ever come across. If you ever come across a mansplainer, turn around and walk in the opposite direction. Such people will definitely get on your nerves, especially when they will try to impart their wisdom about things that they have absolutely no idea about.
So, before you punch a hole in their face, calm down and just stay away from them. Because engaging with these types of toxic people will only make you want to pull your hairs out and gouge out your own eyes.
(7) The ones who are always jealous.
Jealous people are a different breed altogether; you can smell their jealousy from a mile away. Stay away from those people who are never happy about your accomplishments and progress. Such people will always find a way to pull you down and make you feel like you are not good enough because they themselves feel insecure on the inside. They know about their low self-worth, and in order to feel better about themselves, they will make other people feel like garbage.
Genuine friends will never be jealous of your success, talents, and positive attributes; they will always cheer you on, unlike envious people. So, whenever you come across someone who hates all the good things that you have achieved, stay away from them. Never let their negativity impose a dark shadow on your happy life.
(8) The ones who tell you to ‘calm down’.
Has anybody in history ever calmed down when they have been told to calm down? Chances are, no. Even though being overdramatic is not really an admirable quality, but asking someone nonchalantly to calm down never works, and it also gives off the vibe that they are being oversensitive. Moreover, it’s extremely condescending.
When someone tells you to calm down, they are basically portraying themselves as rational, grown-up adults, and treating you like a child. When someone treats you like a child and just wants you to shut up, then it’s clear that they are toxic people who do not care about your feelings and emotions.
(9) The ones who dwell in negativity.
All of us worry but continuously talking about negative things actually makes things negative. If they make you see the negative side of everything, you too will feel depressed and it will decrease your productivity. Being cautious and a tiny bit pessimistic is okay, but if someone is always talking about all the things that can go wrong, it can prove to be mentally draining.
Why waste your emotions behind negativity when life is such a beautiful joyride? It’s better to avoid such people who are always focused on stealing your joy, and making your life seem like a dark, ominous thing.
Toxic people can damage your life, and if you don’t identify them and avoid them, you will do a lot of harm to yourself. One of the most important factors for being happy is to surround yourself with positive people and stay away from toxic and negative people who only create problems and complicate situations wherever they go.
