Do you know that toxic people exist in each one of our lives and most of us get influenced by them? Though one could hardly define a single type of such people, one can broadly classify toxic people as those who stay close to you, but can hardly see you smiling and are ready to make use of you whenever they want for their personal benefit, even if it harms you.
Surprisingly, the number of these toxic people is ever-increasing, and though most people do not stay in touch with you, if you stay in touch with toxic people, you should know how to deal with them. Here are some important tips to help you out in the matter.
First of all, it is important to identify these kinds of people. You can identify toxic people by their traits such as those who are always taking help from you but never willing to help you, not talking to you unless they need you, creating stories about you behind your back, and trying to prove that they are your best friends. Such people exist in your life and in order to deal well with them, you should know how to identify them,
If you find any such toxic people, it is important to stay away from them, no matter how much they try to stay in a close vicinity. Never tell them anything about your personal life and never ask anything from them. If they ask for a favor, you can refuse it politely unless they are in huge trouble. However, NEVER put yourself into trouble because of them. Such people can put others in trouble and get away easily without a returned favor.
Never offer them money or any precious product if they are looking to borrow it from you. You can make excuses without any hesitation and without worrying about your impression on them. What these people think about you would hardly matter.
If you hear these people spinning false tales about you in your absence, take it seriously because this can hurt your success a lot in your workplace. Offer them clear and strict instructions of not doing it in future
These are some tricks that you can use while dealing with toxic people in your life. And do it before it is too late.
