I’ve reached a time in my life where I’ve found myself bizarrely trapped. It’s like I was a magnet, attracting toxic people. It’s like I’ve done something to invite them in, but I’m not sure what! In my experience, there are a handful of things you do that you don’t realize brings in negative Nancy types.
1. You’re good at listening.
99% of the time, being a good listener is awesome!
Unfortunately with manipulative and toxic people, they love a good listener. They know you to be a good listener and clamp on to you.
