There are people in this world who will try to make you think they are good people when they are actually not. While at first, you might not realize what they’re doing, the more time that you spend with them the more clear things will become. 

Toxic people come in a lot of different shapes and sizes, no two are the same. That you should keep in mind moving forward. As human beings, we are often too kind and too forgiving which sets us up to be surrounded by people who do not deserve to be in our lives. We should all be very careful who we let close because if toxic people end up surrounding you, they will drain you and leave you with the bullshit they’ve caused. 

Below I am going to go over some of the signs that perhaps someone in your life is more toxic than you want to admit. If someone is doing these things before you, don’t ignore these signs. You deserve to be happy and surrounded by people who will help you grow not people who want nothing more than to hold you back.

6 Signs You’re Facing Toxic People In Your Life:

1. They are always bringing up things they’ve done to try to sway your choices.

Toxic people love to pull guilt trips. Whenever you refuse to do something for them they will always bring up things they’ve done for you. While things might not be even, they expect them to be even if you end up doing more for them than they do for you.

2. They are always trying to use intimidation against you to get their way. 

These kinds of people are not the kind of people who react well when they aren’t able to get what they want. If you disagree with them or tell them no they will try to intimidate you to do what they want. The more you fight them the more they push back and intimidation is something they love to try and use to their advantage.

3. They are very ‘my way or the highway.’

When you’re too close to toxic people you will notice that they very much use the ‘my way or the highway’ thought process more often than not. When you don’t do something they want they will either completely leave you high and dry or force you into it one way or another. They never give you time to think things over, and they always make a big deal out of smaller issues.

4. You feel very wiped out after spending time with them.

Toxic people leave others feeling drained once they’ve spent time with them. They make you feel like you need some distance and room to recharge. If you are constantly around them, you will never be able to get back to the sense of normal you crave.

5. They never want to take ‘no’ as an answer.

While a lot of people usually have no issue with hearing the word ‘no.’ Toxic people hate it with a passion. When someone tells them ‘no’ they are refusing them and that’s not something they let fly. They go out of their way to push and push until they hear a ‘yes.’

6. Nothing is ever good enough for them.

The more you do for these kinds of people the more they want. Nothing is ever good enough. They take and take and take until you have nothing left to give. You can never please them.
