8 Signs That Show You Have A Toxic Person In Your Life

Let's think about the word "toxic" for a moment. Something that is toxic is never a good thing. There are labels on toxic substances that warn us to stay away.

Coming into contact with toxic substances can make you sick and could even kill you. It's no different with toxic people.

Because we all live, work and play out in society, there is no way to avoid running into or meeting toxic people. But, there are some surefire warning signs that you can look out for.

Below are 8 signs that show someone may be a toxic person.

1. Drama, drama everywhere

Toxic people are always involved in some kind of drama. Whether it is a crisis or conflict, it is always something.

Toxic people thrive on drama and are usually the instigators of the situation. Despite this, they always play the victim.

2. They're never wrong

Toxic people feel the need to be right every time, at all times.

Toxic people try to prove they are right and when they can't, they will resort to closing off any new information and stop the conversation, usually with an insult.

If someone can simply not accept the fact that they are not right all of the time, no matter how much evidence or proof is present, then this is a sign they might be a toxic person.

3. Constantly critical

There is a difference between someone who genuinely cares about you being totally honest with you and someone who is constantly criticizing everything about you.

If there is someone in your life who is constantly criticizing you, judging you and giving you unasked for advice, it is probably not you, but them.

4. They're controlling

Someone who has to be in control in every situation is probably a toxic person. Telling you what to do and how to feel all the time can get old, fast.

So can someone who constantly manipulates the situations you're in. Look for these kinds of warning signs. If you feel like someone is using you, cut them out of your life.

5. Constantly talking and interrupting

A major indication that someone is toxic is that they are unable to hold a normal conversation.

Toxic people want you to think they know everything (remember, they're never wrong) and will constantly interrupt so they seem like they know everything.

If someone talks and rarely listens or, even worse, doesn't listen at all, they may be toxic.

6. Lacking compassion

One of the telltale signs of a toxic person is their lack of empathy or compassion towards other people and what they are going through.

Toxic people make negative assumptions about others and are unable to demonstrate empathy and compassion to others.

7. Always gossiping and talking badly about others

Toxic people are also insecure people who try to make themselves feel better by talking badly about others when they're not around.

You can be sure that someone who talks about others behind their backs, will also talk about you behind yours.

8. Negativity

One of the biggest indicators that someone is toxic is constant negativity and a negative attitude.

This is not to be confused with realism as many realists have been labeled negative people.

In this case, negativity includes many factors such as being overly sarcastic, constantly complaining, whining, and most of all, judging people and situations.

Watch for all of the above warning signs, but also listen to your instincts. If your gut tells you that someone is not good for you, your gut is right.

If you get a feeling that a person is 'off' then listen to that feeling, trust it and make a choice whether you need to avoid that person.

And, always, always cut people out of your life who make you feel bad about yourself.

Getting The Success, Love, And The Bliss You Deserve

8 Things You Deserve To Have In Your Relationship

In life, we all have to settle for something less than we desire. But, a relationship should not be one of these things. Everyone deserves to have a happy, healthy relationship.

A good relationship brings out the best in people, making them happier, more open, loving, and accepting.

While a bad relationship can be emotionally damaging. Below are 8 things you deserve to have in your romantic relationship.

1. Laughter

Your partner may have a very different sense of humor than you, but they should still make you laugh and smile.

Loving someone means wanting to see them happy, so a happy relationship is normally filled with laughter and inside jokes.

2. Someone who is always excited to see you

After a few years of being with each other, you may not have butterflies in your stomach when you first see each other. But you should still be happy and excited to see one other.

Even when you're in a terrible mood, seeing your partner should make you feel happier.

3. Passion

Spontaneous kisses and passionate intimacy are a lot of fun. Even if it doesn't happen often, you should know that your partner loves you and finds you irresistible.

4. Understanding

Maybe you cry whenever you watch romantic comedies, and maybe you like to dip your chips in melted chocolate.

Whatever little quirks you have in your personality, your partner should understand them.

Even if they don't want to do it with you, they should understand that you are your own person with your own quirks. They should love you for every little quirk.

5. Someone who cheers you on

In a great relationship, both partners are each other's cheerleaders, cheering each other on with every task they undertake.

It can be tough living without support, so your partner should offer you unlimited support.

6. Mutual trust

Trust is one of the most important things in a happy relationship. Your partner shouldn't worry that you will cheat on them, or that you will take all the money from your joint bank account and leave.

You love each other and support each other, and trust is an essential part of that.

7. Freedom

In a healthy relationship, both partners understand that they both need freedom and space from each other once in a while to see other people and do their own thing.

You are two separate people and you have your own individual lives as well as the life you have together. Wanting to do things separately once in a while is healthy in a good relationship.

8. Open communication

Communication is one of the most important things in a relationship, and you and your partner should both feel like you can openly discuss anything with each other without fear of being dismissed.

If you can't talk to the one person you are most intimate with, their is something very wrong in your relationship.

My Side Of The Story

5 Questions To Ask Yourself That Will Help You Let Go Of The Past

It's hard to let go of the past sometimes.

We all look back on old times with fondness and sometimes regret. We miss old friends, old lovers, and old places too.

But being stuck in the past doesn't do the present moment all that much good. In a way, pining for the past puts today on hold.

So what can we do to get out heads out of the past? Start by considering these 5 things.

1. How does the past serve the present moment?

It isn't the past's duty necessarily to serve this present moment in time, but it's still a fair question to ask. What does the past do for you at this moment in time?

Does holding onto it enrich your present in any way?

2. Am I the same person?

When determining whether or not it's healthy to hold onto the past, consider if you're the same person as you were back then.

Do you hold the same spiritual beliefs? Ethical beliefs? Do you have the same interests? Would you do anything differently?

3. Is there anything left to gain from the past?

The answer to this question is almost always no.

Aside from valuable lessons, there really isn't that much to take away from the things that happened in the past. But that leads to another question:

4. Have I learned my lesson?

Part of every messed up situation, part of every failure and every setback, is learning your lesson. If you've learned from the past, then it's time to move on.

5. Am I happier in the present moment?

If the answer to this isn't a resounding yes, you may want to consider making some changes.

I Missed Myself

5 Problems That Only Old Souls Experience

There are different explanations for what an old soul is. Some think it stems from your interests and personality, but I think it's rooted in a much deeper, spiritual source.

New souls are being generated all the time, that should be plain to see. The human population keeps growing and growing!

But old souls are always being reincarnated, sort of like recycling in a way, and the more the soul has been reincarnated, the older it gets.

And in the same way the young person becomes an older, wiser person, the young soul ages as well.

Makes sense, right? There are new souls and old souls, and in the same way, there are problems that, most likely, only old souls will experience in life.

1. When you are young, you are constantly doubted, but…

You also have this uncanny ability to smell which way the wind is blowing, to sense when something is off, and your intuition is just sharp.

In our society, older people disregard the thoughts of the young because they perceive them as being inexperienced or naive.

Sometimes that's true, but with an old soul, there is a wealth of experience from a culmination of past lives.

And these experiences, while not specifically remembered, create an imprint in your mind. As a result, you have a great sixth sense about things, even though many older people won't believe you.

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.

2. As a child, you were seen as being 'strange'.

This isn't universally the case, but for many old souls, when they're young, their peers, and often the adults around them, don't get them. "Strange" is a pretty broad term, too.

This can entail being precocious, rebellious, and hungry for knowledge. These are kids that fight the power and also want to learn about things well above their grade levels.

The authorities in their lives will try to break them of some of the less 'desirable' qualities of an old soul, but chances are, the old soul just isn't going to budge.

Turns out they're a little stubborn. Who would have guessed?

3. You forgive too easily.

It might frustrate the people in your life at some level, but some old souls tend to forgive a little too easily. "Water under the bridge," they say.

They've been around the block a few times and they know that it's not particularly useful to hold onto grudges.

Holding a grudge is like drinking a poison and expecting the other person to get sick. But because of that leniency, you can get burned more easily.

In this case, you may want to reconsider whether or not you let a person back in after they've been forgiven. Forgiveness doesn't automatically grant a person a clean slate with you, after all.

4. You don't forgive easily enough.

This one definitely goes both ways. Some people, as they age, and as their souls age, become less idealistic and more cynical.

Cynicism is toxic for the spirit, and forgiveness is an important part of healing emotional and spiritual wounds.

Don't be too rigid with people when things go bad. Instead, let it go. It's a lot easier than you think. And it's fair if someone burns you and you don't want to let them back in.

But for your own sake, and to some extent theirs, you have to forgive them for what they've done.

5. People are inexplicably drawn to you.

This attribute makes me laugh the most because, and this isn't always the case, but most old souls are introverts and loners! They enjoy their peace and quiet.

And yet, because they are so well rounded, experienced, and many times just fun to be around, people are drawn to them.

It makes it easy to throw a party, but hard to get your alone time. For some old souls, you have to really learn how to strike a balance between social and personal life.

Otherwise you'll find yourself with an emotional imbalance.

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

Hard Times Will Always Reveal True Friends

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.
