One of the critical things you can do to change your life for the better is to get rid of toxic friends or people around you. Removing them out of your life will enable you to save both time and energy for personal and professional development and growth. I have dropped a few such friends from my life, and I never regret my decision. Actually, that’s one of the best decisions I have ever made so far.
How do you know if a friend is toxic? That is when you notice the following subtle classic cues. They appear irritating or annoying, hard to please, demanding, or otherwise mean-spirited. On the whole, toxic people try to control you. These people disregard your boundaries. All they care is ‘me, me, me.’ For them, you are just a tool they can use to serve their self-interest. Sometimes they treat you like dirt and won’t give you space or a voice to express yourself or do your thing.
Have you noticed that your friends always take and don’t give? That is another strong indicator of a toxic type. Still, if someone claims she or he knows everything and is always right that shows that person is not honest, so the farther you stay away from them, the better. These individuals will not take any responsibility for anything, except themselves. And no, they do not care about improving themselves.
So, don’t be afraid to get rid of them if they happen to be your friends or when you feel they are sabotaging your well-being, success, happiness, and growth! It is crucial; release them! Remember, to a great extent, you are a product of your surroundings or environment, and this includes the people you keep around you or you spend the most time around. Be discriminate when choosing your friends. But also, don’t forget always to try to be a better friend: do unto others as you would have them do unto you.
