Do you agree with the fact that the people in your life should be those who pull you up instead of destroying you? From time to time, it is good to sort out your friends to eliminate the negative influences of your life, and replace them with positive waves. If you are reviewing the list of people you know and you do not know where to start, do not worry! Here is a list of the five types of toxic people that will help you make room for new and more fulfilling relationships.
1. The incessant critic
Do you know this feeling of never being good enough? No matter how hard you try, is that person still there to tell you what you have done wrong? Some people say that we are our worst critics, so the last thing we need is another.
It may be in the form of a small voice (in the proper sense) that hangs over your shoulder and emphasizes the slightest detail, or that you have missed. And if you had really missed something, what did it matter? If this person really thinks that it improves your life, she will stand by you and give you advice, not criticism.
Every criticism is not bad, however, the incessant critic is often unconstructive in his remarks. He is probably the one who has a real problem. This "friend" tends to have low self-esteem or wishes to retain control.
2. The passive aggressor
The passive aggressor of your entourage probably has "actions speak louder than words" tattooed in the back. An effective way to make you understand that you have done something wrong. But how can you know the source of the passive aggression of this person if it continues to be cryptic in its actions and remarks?
His interactions are probably indirect and full of anger. A relationship with such a person is unhealthy because you are likely to overanalyze the things she says, which could make you feel responsible for another person's hatred. And it's not fair to you.
Finally, when people choose - and this is a choice - not to be forthright and honest about their feelings, their relationships erupt.
3. The narcissist
You have all at least observed a narcissist in action once in your life. The world revolves around him, and what is worse is that he always makes sure you know it!
Imagine that you are surrounded by loved ones and just when you make a vow, blow your candle, and cut your birthday cake, the narcissist (which you probably should not have invited) does what 'It does the best. After listening to him speak for about 10 minutes about the fact that his party was much better than yours, you finally remind him that you were there and that it is useless to spoil yours!
If you had not noticed, the narcissists are quite superficial and quickly get angry if you make them feel inferior. So before becoming emotionally too invested in a relationship with a narcissist, it would be wise to cut the bridges.
4. The psychopath
This other guy does not refer to your crazy friends you sometimes call "psychopaths" to laugh, but to the antisocial personality disorder that a person in your group of friends might suffer. According to the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, antisocial personality disorder includes sociopathy and psychopathy. If you know someone like that, you probably noticed some of its features. It may be contradictory; For example, sometimes he explodes in anger, is violent and then has remorse. At other times, he feels no remorse or compassion. It is probably because of these contradictions that it is so difficult to strip the psychopath from his life.
The best thing to do (and the healthiest) is to detach yourself from this kind of person and try to direct it to a person or a place where it can find professional help.
5. The non-communicating
It seemed appropriate that this type of people be the last on the list. There is a constant among these people with whom you share some form of relationship: communication. Communication (or lack thereof) is the factor that makes our relationships functional or dysfunctional.
The non-communicator will stop talking to you in case of conflict or confrontation, which is why the majority of relationships begin to deteriorate. This individual will also refuse to engage in debates.
