Here are five simple ways to deal with toxic people...

1. Calmly tell them it's unacceptable.

When someone is being toxic, you can't match their toxicity and expect things to get better.

Instead, take a deep breath and tell them in a calm, positive way that their behavior isn't acceptable to you. This way, you put it into their heads without any negativity.

2. Don't take responsibility.

Don't become apologists for the toxic people in your life. Other, your friends and family, will notice.

If they bring it up, don't try to turn their behavior into something acceptable. Acknowledge the problem and forget it.

3. Be upbeat and positive toward them.

If you have toxic, negative people in your space, counteract their toxicity with positive behavior.

In this way, you can show them that the world is filled with love and people who care about them, but won't enable their bad behavior.

4. Clear your mind.

Toxic people can really drain you. Spending even a small amount of time with them really wipes you out. Be sure to take some time to recharge.

Enjoy a hike or some meditation. Clear your mind. Let the negative energy they shed onto you wash off of you.

5. Help them or move on.

And that's pretty much where it all has to end. If you've got toxic people in your life, you either have to help them or let them go. It's not an easy choice, but it's a choice you have to make.

Life Also Has A Beautiful Side To It

5 Signs You're Friends With Someone Who Is Bad For Your Mental Health

We encounter hundreds of possible friendships and relationships on a near daily basis. Those you come into direct contact with via work or social events are probably more likely to make it into your inner circle, but even a random person you bump into on the street could spark a connection that leads to friendship.

We don't always make a particularly conscious or deliberate choice to become friends with someone, there are connections that seem to happen simply by coincidence.

When we do realize that we've forged something worth continuing however, it is important to take into consideration how beneficial this person might or might not be in our life and vice versa.

When thinking about whether or not your friends or one friend in particular is good or bad for you overall, you may also want to consider the possibility that you may not be the best for them.

Do you have friends who might read this article with you in mind?

1. Sugar-coating and walking on eggshells constantly.

There's nothing wrong with being reasonably sensitive to a person's needs.

Any conversation with a friend is worthy of some semblance of tact and respect, but if you find yourself feeling as though you can't say anything at all without getting a negative or indignant response, this is a problem.

How are you supposed to communicate with someone who requires planning and strategy just to have a pleasant conversation with?

This isn't healthy for either one of you, because you end up telling a lot of white lies and omitting the truth just to avoid confrontation or drama, and the other person isn't hearing the truth at all.

Tip-toeing around someone's feelings too much is not good for them, it only teaches them that their feelings and reactions are someone else's responsibility.

This will cause them big problems as soon as they end up around somebody who won't play extra gently with them.

2. Being made to feel like hanging out with you is a massive inconvenience.

Do you feel like orchestrating a simple hang out or even talking on the phone is like playing a one-handed violin concerto for this person?

If you have to practically hire a private investigator just to get your friend to get back to you once a week, it may be better for everyone just to end the agony.

It doesn't exactly do good for a person's self esteem when they feel like their friends are actively avoiding them for no reason.

These people are usually just too self-centered to realize that friendships are a two way street, and you're not likely to change them easily.

3. They make you feel inferior.

A person who truly cares for you and wants to be your friend will let you know how valuable and important you are to them.

Not only this, but they will make sure that you know how lucky they feel to be a part of your life. If you're friends with someone, there's probably a few very good reasons.

You should admire and respect that person, and you should always feel lucky and grateful to be a part of their life.

If your friend makes you feel like you're the lucky one and yet they're just hanging around so you can bask in their greatness, this is a one-sided and selfish relationship and you can do better.

4. Making excuses for bad behavior.

Healthy friendships shouldn't have to be justified.

If you feel the need to explain to yourself or others why you still spend time with someone who treats you badly or behaves negatively towards you, it's probably time to cut ties.

You shouldn't need to make excuses or apologize for someone else's behavior, and you shouldn't allow the people close to you to disappoint and walk over you all the time.

If they're not willing to own up to their own mistakes and work on themselves, there's no point in hanging around.

5. When they induce anxiety and dread.

If the thought of planning something or hanging out with this friend tends to make you nervous, anxious or stressed rather than excited, nobody is getting anything positive out of the exchange.

This person has worn on your good graces so much that they now feel like an obligation or a burden. Spending time with a friend should always be pleasant at the very least, it should be a way for you to unwind and relax, not a challenge you should have to prepare for.

Time with friends is all about feeling comfortable and cared for, if time with this person gives you feelings on the opposite end of the spectrum, maybe they simply shouldn't be called a friend anymore.

It can be difficult to let go of a relationship that has turned bad or become toxic for our mental and emotional well-being, but these types of poisoned connections are bad for everyone involved.

Having the privilege of being someone's friend is an honor and an incredibly important position to fill.

You should know how to love and treat your friends with the respect they deserve, but you should never forget that you deserve that treatment just as much.

Real Is Rare

7 Traits Of Truly Authentic People

Before I get into the traits of authentic people, I want to start by describing what an "authentic person" is. Authentic people don't care about fads or trends. They dance to the beat of their own drum instead of following the crowd.

Are you still searching for your life purpose? You won't believe what the science of Numerology can reveal about you!

That's right, the numerology of your birth date, regardless of what month you were born, can reveal surprising information about your personality.

They are the same person in every situation and don't change who they are based on who they're with or what they're doing. They're genuine and original.

So, why isn't everyone authentic? One reason is fear. Fear of what someone will think of them.

Fear that they won't be liked or accepted or popular if they do, or don't do, something. Fear that people will make fun of them or think they're weird or stupid.

Another reason is for self-gain. Think about the salesman who puts on a big act to convince you that what they're selling is the best thing since sliced bread.

Or the manipulator who is nice to you until they get what they want, then they leave you.

If you would like to be a more authentic person yourself, start incorporating these 7 traits into your life:

1. Indulge in your curiosities

Be curious about things you are told. Be curious about what you hear and see. Don't accept anything as the "one and only truth."

Don't be the lemming that blindly follows just because it's what your parents or your friends believe.

Do your own research before deciding what you believe. Stay curious about others and about yourself.

2. Speak your mind

You're hurting yourself if you are holding back what you want to say because you're afraid of the reaction you'll get.

You need to speak your truths and be heard. This doesn't mean that you need to always say how you feel, especially when it will be hurtful to someone else.

Rather, find one space where you can honestly and openly communicate. Maybe it's a journal, maybe it's a close friend, or maybe it's a support group.

I personally am a big fan of writing, support groups, and coffee dates with friends!

3. Spend time alone

Spending time alone is a great way to get to know yourself – your feelings, your thoughts and your beliefs.

When we are constantly surrounding ourselves with other people, it is nearly impossible to know what our own beliefs are.

So, make time for yourself. Meditate. Go for walks by yourself. Get to know yourself by being with yourself.

4. Accept the fact that not everyone will like you

You don't like everyone you meet for one reason or another. Conversely, not everyone who meets you will like you.

So, stop trying to be everyone's friend by being a chameleon who changes colors depending on your environment.

It's impossible to make everyone like you. So, stop trying and just be yourself!

5. Know what's motivating you

This is something that authentic people do on a regular basis. If you don't understand your motive for doing something, your ego can run amok.

Authentic people ask this question of themselves: Is our motivation one that is true to who we are, or is it ruled by a need for approval? So, check in with what your motivation is often.

6. Listen to your gut

If something feels wrong, there's a reason. If something doesn't feel right, there's probably some truth to that. Our bodies are intelligent and can sense when something isn't right for us.

Pay attention to your gut feelings and trust that your intuition is onto something.

7. Never apologize for who you are

Authentic people don't apologize for who they are. We are the person we were created to be.

When we apologize for who we are or what we love, we send the message to ourselves, and to others, that we are not something is wrong with us and we need to be "fixed."

So, don't apologize for the fact that you like purple hair, or you like to wear boots in the summer, or you need to be alone sometimes.

Who you are is who you are…and it's beautiful at times, chaotic at times, and more often than not, both.

Pay Attention

5 Habits That Make People Bitter

Life isn't always carefree and fun. It can be stressful and tough, it can even begin to feel so draining and difficult that a person just can't handle the weight of it all on their shoulders.

Things go wrong, people disappoint us, and bad things happen. Sometimes it's as though everything that can go wrong is doing so all at once.

When you feel like you've been put through the wringer and you're all out of patience, it's incredibly important not to give into the temptation to turn bitter and angry.

Hard as it may be, you've got to try and focus on the lighter side of things, and don't let go of your optimism.

Bitterness is an ugly thing, and it only ends up hurting us and the people we love in the end. It benefits no one and adds even more unpleasantness to a world already burdened with plenty of negativity and challenges.

Below are 5 major habits of the bitter and jaded, and tips for avoiding falling in to the cycle yourself.

1. Clinging to grudges.

Carrying personal injuries with you in life gets heavy. It casts a shadow of negativity over all of your thoughts and feelings, and can directly impede your ability to progress or improve.

When you refuse to let go of a grudge, you aren't getting any kind of revenge on the person you're angry with, you're only hurting yourself.

It's perfectly fine not to forget something that's happened, this is how we learn lessons and form our worldview, but letting go of the toxic anger you feel is critical to your self-growth.

2. Using drama to garner attention or sympathy.

Bitter people aren't very enjoyable to be around, but even they get lonely.

Because they're incapable of making friends in a positive way like through friendly conversation, they tend to try and stir up dramatic situations and problems to connect with people over.

Obviously this is an unhealthy form of companionship and can only last so long as the problem can be complained about, so it's always temporary.

It can be tempting to try and gain friends this way because it seems initially easy, but if you find that the discussions you have with someone always center around complaints, annoyances or talking negatively about other people, you need to change your tune.

"Friends" of this type only amplify the bad energy around you.

3. Constant jealousy and envy.

There's a good reason why we refer to this as a green-eyed monster. It is one of the most destructive and ugly emotions we're capable of.

One of the first signs of true bitterness is an inability to be happy for others when good things happen to them.

If all you can think of when you hear someone else's good news is how much more deserving you are, you need a reality check.

You have no right to assume anything about other people, you don't know the intricate details of their lives and they are no less deserving of happiness in life than you are.

Angrily stewing over what someone else has doesn't help you achieve your own goals or desires.

You need to stop comparing yourself against others entirely. Focus on your own life and your own goals, this is how you make good things happen for yourself.

4. Always expecting the absolute worst.

It can be a real battle sometimes to stay positive even when it seems like you just can't get a break, but it is essential in order to keep yourself from giving into cynicism.

This can turn into a cycle of self-fulfilling prophecy.

You try your best and still lose out a few times, so you stop believing that the outcome will ever be anything other than bad.

Unfortunately this mindset ultimately sets you up for just the failure you wish to avoid.

You have to keep that little bit of hope in your mind and heart, that even if things have been bad for a while, there is always a chance they will be better this time around.

The truth is that every day is a new day and another chance to turn it all around. Don't forget it.

5. Focusing only on the negatives.

Some things in life are simply not under our control, this is something we must all accept.

What is always under our control however, is how we react to these things and what we choose to take away from it.

The human brain is built for survival, so we do indeed have a tendency to be more vigilant of the negative or worrisome things than the positive.

This is why it is so paramount that we make positivity a priority. We need to be willing to put in the energy and work it takes to take stock of the good things in life.

Of course apathy and pessimism are easy, but they're also poisonous and crippling.

If you just take a moment to think about the positive things you've seen, heard or experienced recently, no matter how big or seemingly insignificant, you'll find there is always more to be grateful for than you realized.

Positive thoughts and framing of your feelings will breed more positivity and joy in your life, which will create a more productive and fulfilled existence organically; The kind of existence you desire and truly deserve.

Good People End Up With Good People

10 Signs Your Partner Is The Type Of Person You Should Marry

Relationships can be viewed as a big bathtub of hot, perfumed water. We dip our toes in and guess if it will feel as good on the rest of our bodies.

We breathe the scent, trying to qualify how we're reacting. We wonder if the chemicals are really good for us or quiet poison that shorts our lifetimes.

Should we get in now? What if we get burned? If we wait then it will cool too much…

We eventually realize that this speculation is unproductive and cutting into the time we could be using to experience life. We don't want to rush things, we don't want to get hurt, and we don't want to waste our time on unproductive relationships.

We cut the chatter and either go for it and see how it feels or take a shower…

Below we've collected traits that any hip, smart, productive, spiritualist will want in their eventual fiancé. Always keep your eyes peeled, what we desire most is often right in front of us.

They Are Honest And Genuine

They are realer than life and oh so casual about it. They don't make time for or waste their energy on superficial, or dishonest pursuits. They have either found themselves or are well on their way to doing so.

Their Ambitions Leave Room For You

Life is often a series of balancing acts. It is a requirement for the betrothed to have their own unique passions and goals.

If your love's life passions take away from your relationship, then that is actually worse than having an ambitionless vegetable for a lover.

At least you can cuddle a vegetable. Your presence may have shocked them and they are scrambling to make room for you in was once a metaphorical one seater life.

Early on, measures have to be taken to show you that you are a priority. It will be helpful if you can be flexible but don't forsake your dream of having the perfect partner and a perfect job.

Your goals have to be taken into consideration. If this was easy, there would be more married folks on Forbes' list.

They Are Consistent In Everything They Do

A superhero one day, then a depressed couch potato the next, is unacceptable. Inevitably there will be down times, but it should never be up for debate whether they are going to do what they promised.

It's better to be with a person who is good all the time, with a few mistakes, than Romeo wannabe, that is Juliet most of the time.

They Challenge You, But Are Always Respectful

They aren't afraid to win or lose around you, so they give competitions their all.

They will correct you if you are wrong, and challenge you to fun little tests. Never, in defeat or victory, will they intentionally disrespect you.

When they correct you, it isn't to make them look better or you look foolish. It's because they want you to succeed in all things and be happy.

They Work To Better Themselves

They are happy with who they are but know that taking care of ourselves is everyone's secret job. They work out, try to stay socially active and don't sit around watching Netflix all day.

While bettering or maintaining themselves, it doesn't take over their life and become zealotry. They do what they do out of love for themselves and for you.

Any productive routine they have incorporated into their life should never become a platform for them feel and act superior.

They Share A Similar Belief Structure As You

Having the same or similar beliefs on morality, sex, death, and church are a must. These are parts of our core character. If they have a radically different or opposing outlook, then there will be issues.

You both don't have to agree on every little detail, in fact the differences should be mutually acknowledged and respected.

There should never be a converting stage of your relationship unless, the other person genuinely feels that the change would truly be better for them.

They Inspire You

My boyfriend inspires me everyday to have more fun, smile more, work harder, and be healthier. I can't say that he is a muse for me artistically, but he inspires me to be a good person.

That definitely shines through my work.

You significant other should brighten the dark corners of your life, and enrich your life. The mention of them is enough to make you smile and dig deep.

They Are Empathetic

They aren't robots, is mainly what you are looking for.

They are aware of their emotions and can willing feel what others do as well. The difference is known and the connections constantly being strengthened.

If your future fiancé has to be able to readily empathize, or a large chunk of your relationship, will be the two of you trying to get on the same page.

They Are Family Oriented

Deciding to have a family is a huge decision. One that should never be taken lightly. Your future partner doesn't have to have an answer immediately, to be honest that answer is likely to change depending on age.

Try to find out whether that's an experience they've considered and how they felt about it.

Some ten years into the marriage the unreciprocated desire for a family could spell disaster for your development and life experiences.

They Are Actively Aware And Quickly Dismiss Petty Emotions

They have the natural perspective and emotional maturity to know when they are unjustified or childish. Sometimes, they may need a push in the right direction but in the end, and that's fine.

The bottom line is that they love you and don't want something trivial to come between the two of you.
