In life, you will come across people with many different personalities. Some will inspire you; some will make you laugh; some will be there for you. However, you will meet people who will be toxic for you. People who will hold you back. People who will break your heart and make you question everything.
But the difference between ordinary people and resilient, mentally strong people is that the latter cuts off those people from their lives entirely. Here are 7 types of toxic people that have no place in a strong, confident, mentally strong individual.
1. THE LAZY ONES
Mentally strong people can’t understand the concept of laziness. They have a purpose in life and are hard-working people. They go after their dreams and don’t give up. They also know that if they are around lazy people, they risk getting lazy themselves. That’s why they only surround with people with the same aspirations as them.
2. THE NOT-SO-DEEP THINKERS
These people only talk about trivialities. They gossip around and you can’t talk about anything meaningful with them. Usually, they think they are the smartest people and they know everything which oftentimes is not true. Mentally strong people avoid these people because they feel they steal their energy.
3. THE “YOLO” ONES
These people go by the premise that you only live once, and you have to make the best of it. Their meaning of living the best life is getting drunk and partying like animals. Mentally strong people are not like that. Of course, they go out and have fun, but they also enjoy learning new things, reading books, and spending time in nature.
4. THE SHOWOFFS
People who are always trying to show off and want others to see how “awesome” they are and boast about their accomplishments are usually people who don’t have confidence in themselves. Plus, people who feel the need to brag usually don’t have anything to brag about, therefore they exaggerate. Strong and confident people avoid this kind of people because they don’t have time to listen to anyone’s bragging.
5. THE ONES WHO LACK DREAMS AND GOALS
These people get up, got to work, come home, and go to sleep. They live a mundane life. They don’t aspire to bigger things because they are stuck in their comfort zone. That’s why mentally strong people don’t want to surround themselves with them. Because mentally strong people go after their dreams and shoot for the stars.
6. THE BUMMERS
No one likes negativity. No one likes to be surrounded by someone who always tells you you can’t do something. Especially mentally strong people. They cut off bummers immediately.
7. THE JUDGEMENTAL ONES
Do you need a description of this kind of people? Their aura reeks of negativity and pessimism. Nothing is ever good to them. They only see flaws and shortcomings. Of course, no mentally sane person would want to be surrounded by people like this.
