Attracting toxic people in your life isn’t something we can always avoid. Everyone knows the feeling of being around a toxic individual, but it’s our human nature to ignore it for the sake of a friendship or even romantic entanglement.
When you do finally accept that the person around you is toxic, the reasons become obvious.
Although we can’t always recognize a toxic person when we see one, we can recognize the invitations we provide those people through our behavior.
Check out these five shocking reasons you attract toxic people in your life. You’d never think these qualities would backfire when it comes to your personal relationships.
1. You’re a Good Listener
Finding a good listener is hard to come by these days. Technology has made it easy to get distracted, and our attentions aren’t always on the people around us.
If you’re a good listener, you’re going to attract all kinds of people, especially the most toxic.
Toxic people love to talk about themselves, and they will for hours if you let them. They don’t need to hear your advice or take on a situation, they just want to hear it their way.
