Ever wonder what you did
to deserve harsh treatment from others?
Well, sometimes it’s not you, but the work
people have to put in to improve their habits.
Whether it’s their deep-rooted insecurities that
caused them to lash out at you
or their inability to let go of the past,
know that you don’t have to tolerate the toxic behavior
that people have to work out on their own.
Here are five types of unhealthy people
you should walk away from.
1. The Green Monster.
Do you know someone who never seems happy
when you achieve something
or always gets competitive
even over the littlest of things?
When jealousy drives them,
it creates tension between you two
instead of building an authentic
Envious feelings can also make it hard for the individual
to be happy for you when you want to celebrate
special moments with them.
Don’t play into their comparison games
and never downplay your own achievements
just to make them feel better.
Most importantly, ask yourself if you want a true friend
更重要的是 你要问问自己 你要的是一个挚友
or a mere frenemy in disguise.
2. The Nihilist.
Life can get messy
and it’s normal to feel dejected every once in a while.
But if you know someone who is
constantly a Debbie Downer
and dismisses your excitement over future events,
hobbies and dreams,
it makes it nearly impossible to share that happiness.
Know that you don’t have to stoop to
their level of pessimism.
In fact, staying away from a negative attitude
will be beneficial for your health in the long run.
Research has shown that high levels of cynicism
puts people at a bigger risk of developing dementia
compared to more open and trusting individuals.
3. The slacker.
Have you ever sat next to someone who
wanted to mooch off your work
and get the same credit for it?
Talk about unfair right?
These people lack motivation, don’t care about ethics
and do whatever it takes if it means
taking the easy way out.
You don’t even have to work directly with them
to be affected by their lazy attitude.
They might just bring the entire class down
with their lazy attitude.
Whether they manipulate, guilt trip or sweet-talk you,
无论他们是在操纵你 让你愧疚 还是对你花言巧语
watch out for these sneaky individuals.
They might seem like they care about you,
but they only care about two things:
fast results and themselves.
4. The complainer.
What’s worse than wasting time complaining
about a situation instead of changing it?
If you know someone who prefers to wallow in self-pity
instead of taking action,
it can be a bad influence on you.
Toxic people who incessantly play the victim card
but never take responsibility for what
they are capable of fixing
aren’t just whiny, they’re self-absorbed.
5. The verbal abuser.
People who know how to dish out criticism
but don’t know how to apply it to their own lives
can be incredibly hypocritical.
They continue to put others down because it’s easier
than working out their own problems.
Know that you don’t have to take in what they say,
and surround yourself with people who will
build you up, instead of breaking you down.
People who are verbally abusive enjoy attacking you
because it makes them feel better about themselves.
Your friends should be supportive of your goals
and help you strive forward
instead of holding you back.
Do you encounter these types of people in your life?
Evaluate your goals
and don’t be afraid to cut people out of your life.
