Stop pretending their toxic behavior is OK
Don’t let moody behavior of toxic people get to you and don’t be fooled by their games. Maybe it’s easier to quite them down by giving them attention but often times they use the moody behavior to get preferential treatment. If you get stuck in this pattern, you will lose in the long run. If toxic people are being rewarded for not changing, they won’t change. Don’t let these toxic people drag you down.
Put Your Foot Down
Do not ever allow a person to disrespect or belittle you. Don’t be afraid to call a person out for being rude or insulting you. Make sure that there will be no games played on your end. Put your foot down and be smart about what you let toxic people get away with.
Take Time For Yourself
If you are one who has a toxic person in your life, be sure to find time for yourself in order to stay sane and recuperate. It is exhausting dealing with people who are not positive to be around. You deserve some time to yourself to reflect in peace and sanity.
Stand up for yourself because some people will do anything to gain their own success at the expense of others. Don’t let that happen. Those who do this know that they are doing wrong, but if you speak up, they will surprisingly back down. Sometimes they may not respond in this way and instead chose to express anger. This may happen but its better for you to speak up then let them continue to be manipulative. If you do not acknowledge someones toxic behavior, it can become the number one reason why you can get sucked into their mind games.
Don’t take their toxic behavior personally
Toxic people will often imply that you have done something wrong and that’s because it is implied that we have done something wrong, it can hurt our confidence. When you learn to take nothing personally you will receive a huge feeling of freedom. What negative people have to say and what they do is entirely based on their own self-reflection so it is important to not take it personally.
