To a mom whose 2019 ended with a major meltdown because of the several little problems that piled up, she now aims to be gentle and kind to herself. Part of her goal is to block negativity and live the life she has always wanted – contented, productive, and happy. And to make this very much possible, she needs to properly manage her emotions and remain calm, especially when under pressure. It’s a significant factor, too, to shy away from toxic people and, if possible, block them off.
As toxic people may or may not be fully aware of the negativity they spread, it is best then to keep a distance from them. They are, after all, not worth the time and energy. More so, they take so much energy creating chaos and even pushing one’s patience to the limit — the very thing that happened to me and hope not to happen anymore.
As we may not be aware of who the toxic people are in our circle, allow us to help you differentiate those who are pleasing and annoying. We have listed here at least four types of toxic drainers you should stay away from. Our goal here is not just to allow them to cling on you but more so as you do not become one yourself.
