Ahh, those charming majestic beasts… Narcissists, sociopaths, toxic people. Who could resist them?
Well, not you if these 7 things are true for you.
1. YOUR MOTHER TONGUE IS FLATTERY
Your sweet, honeywords attract toxic people to you like a moth to a flame. Lots of attention and flattery words are what feeds the narcissist’s ego. It’s what makes them feel satiated. So, you telling them how gorgeous they are constantly and admiring them is why you can’t free yourself from narcissists.
2. YOU ARE SCEPTICAL IF WHAT THEY SAY IS TRUE
If you feel uneasy with them and you feel like you can’t trust their words, then consider that your intuition may be right. If something feels too good to be true, then honey – it probably is.
3. YOU ARE TAKEN IN BY NAME-DROPPING
Yes, sometimes we all want to share a story and tell about the time we met the celebrity we love and flaunt a little, but a toxic person drops names like Rihanna drops hits. This is what psychologists call a Trophy Complex. It’s something they do to hide their own insecurities.
4. YOU HEAR FROM THEM AGAIN POST-BREAKUP (AND AGAIN, AND AGAIN…)
When they don’t have your undivided attention, they begin feeling lonely and abandoned. That’s why they will try and suck you back in their life again. Expect their reappearance to be followed by an apology and they will be telling you that things would be different this time around (they are lying).
5. YOUR LIFE IS AS DRAMATIC AS A NETFLIX PLOT
Their constant high-maintenance demands are making you feel worn down and drained. They suck out your energy and leave you feeling empty. You also feel that the drama will never stop.
6. YOU FEEL LIKE YOU ARE BEING TIMED
If you are dealing with someone who is impatient, easily angered, very persuasive, passive-aggressive, cold, and always attacking you-you are probably involved with a very cruel toxic person. And just so you know, they don’t cope well with being rejected or not getting what they want.
7. YOU ARE AN EMPATHETIC PERSON
Empaths are the most understanding people in the world. If you are an empath, you are a kind, loving, and nice person. You don’t want to hurt anyone. And toxic people are the opposite of you. There lies the crutch and the toxicity. Because the toxic person knows exactly what to say and do to pick your attention and lure you in their web of lies and manipulations.
Have you dealt with a person like this? What happened?
