Release the toxic and infectious – Spreaders of misery,
Souls destroying souls – And poisonous liars.
Awaken from the hallucinations – And take back your heart.
Reclaim your self-esteem – And leave the toxic be.”
– Giorge Leedy, Uninhabited From Lust To Love
People will enter into, and exit out of, our lives and (sometimes) our consciousness. In our lifetime, we inevitably encounter all types of human beings: lovers and haters; friends and foes; truth-seekers and liars. Throughout these countless interactions, one immutable truth remains:
We either benefit from, are harmed by, or neutral towards each and every person we meet.
A lesson can be learned from each type of individual. This is particularly the case of people from who we benefit from; or, on the opposite side of the spectrum, those that inflict harm.
First, we must learn how to recognize people who, intentionally or unintentionally, inflict damage upon the undeserving. This is the most important step to preventing any collateral damage that may occur from their presence in our life. This recognition, even if delayed, allows us to take the necessary measures to resolve (internal and external) conflict.
Here we present five types of toxic people to avoid. It’s important to understand that avoidance does not devalue such a person’s humanity; nobody, regardless of their personality traits, deserves such a fate
The purpose, instead, is to safeguard, and if necessary, reclaim, our sacred human right to inner peace.
