Toxic relationships can come in many forms. Parents, siblings, relationships, co-workers, and etc. But probably the most important thing about these people is the fact that they are very skillful when it comes to disguising their real faces. They hide behind the mask of a kind, considerate and loving human beings when in reality, all they do is manipulate people.
This is why it is so important to evaluate people based on how they make you feel on a daily basis. Toxic people may try to cover their harmful intentions and manipulate you, but if you open your eyes and analyze their behavior, you may actually see them for who they really are.
Here are 10 behaviors of toxic people that you should always be on the lookout for:
1. TOXIC PEOPLE NEVER APOLOGIZE TO ANYONE
Don’t ever expect an apology from these people. Toxic people refuse to own up to their mistakes because they never feel like it’s their own fault. They will construct a great, elaborate lie before admitting they are guilty any day of the week.
2. THEY FORCE PEOPLE TO PROVE THEIR LOYALTY TO THEM
Nothing you do for these individuals is ever good enough for them. No matter how much you try to satisfy their needs, they will still find something they don’t like and criticize you about it. This is a method they use to force you to prove your loyalty to them.
3. THEY NEVER TAKE RESPONSIBILITY FOR THEIR EMOTIONS
Instead, they blame everyone else for how they feel. They project their unwanted feeling onto people because they are not strong enough to deal with them on their own. It is a defense mechanism that these people employ in order to cope with their issues.
4. TOXIC PEOPLE MANIPULATE
In fact, they are hardwired for manipulation. That is how they lure their victims in and how they get what they want. By lying to people and taking advantage of their pure nature.
5. THEY NEVER REVEAL THEIR TRUE SELF
One day they seem kind, loving and caring. Another, they are inconsiderate, harsh and distant. That is how they play their games. That is how they assert their dominance and maintain control.
6. THEY HAVE A WAY OF RUINING PEOPLE’S HAPPINESS
Have something amazing to share? Well, you better not do it in front of these people. Trust me, the minute you open your mouth and start telling them how happy you are, you will regret it. Why? Toxic people are best known for turning any positive news into negative. That is a part of od their nature. Envy doesn’t let them be happy for someone else.
7. TOXIC PEOPLE WOULD NEVER HELP YOU
Don’t make the mistake and ask these people for help. Helping is a natural response and it is something a normal person would gladly do. But never a toxic one. Toxic individuals would never lend a hand. They couldn’t care less about you or anyone else.
8. THEY ARE RUDE
No, they don’t come off as rude. They are rude. The more you get to know them, the more insufferable they become.
9. THEY HAVE A LOUD MOUTH AND THEY THROW EVERYTHING OUT OF PROPORTION
Know this. If you ever confide in these people and ask them to just stay quiet about it, you are in for a surprise. Toxic people make everything into a big deal. They don’t know how to shut their mouths. If you’ve shared something private with them, know that the whole world knows that by now.
10. THEY ARE EXTREMELY JUDGMENTAL
They judge people by their appearance. They are cruel, inconsiderate and like to play with people’s emotions. No one is perfect but themselves. No one could ever be better than them.
