Everyone has their share of vices. Some people are annoying while others are difficult to deal with.

But a toxic person is someone who blissfully creates a mess with your head, surprisingly unaware of the destruction and chaos they bring along with it. Truly toxic people are not worth your feelings, your efforts or your company for that matter.

Whenever you encounter or spend time with a toxic person, you feel emotionally and psychologically drained, you get filled with pessimism and your intuition tells you something’s not quite right.

A Toxic person is anyone who is manipulative, unsupportive, abusive and unhealthy, leaving you feeling drained of your positive life energy.

Here are 5 types of toxic people you should leave without feeling guilty:

1. Gossip monger

Gossiping for some is a great way to pass one’s time. But what one doesn’t realise is that these people are habitual gossipers and will not take a moment to gossip about you, as soon as you turn your back.

If they are having fun time by bavardaging with you, stay rest assured, they will smear campaign you at your back too.

2. The jealous-judgmental people

These one can be spotted from a distance. If you are connecting to a person who is always critical about other people, watch out for trouble.

These people have so much self-hate inside themselves that they hopelessly end up projecting their insecurities on to other people. They always have to point out other people’s negative qualities, their faults, their failures and their loopholes. Doing these gives them immense pleasure.

3. The drama queen

For these people, drama is cake and your attention is the cherry on top. Their lives seem to be so full of struggles, hurdles and adversity that they constantly need your attention, approval, sympathy and pity – not your advice. Never try advising them.

Once you have given them the solutions to their problems – attention, they will have to look forward to another way in which they can create a melodrama. Every single problem in the world is theirs but they somehow don’t want to fix any of them.

When you entertain these drama queens, you end up approving their behaviour and become a part of all the drama. Life gets easier when you ignore these people altogether.

4. The energy vampire

Just staying a few hours with an energy vampire in the same room can suck you out of your essential life energy.

Lacking the very crux of empathetic understanding, they will always try to find flaws in you, making you feel worthless and small in front of them. Energy vampires will literally feed on your psychic energy.

As a result of constantly interacting with an energy vampire, one might feel chronically frustrated, fatigued, upset, anxious, irritable or angry. But you have a choice to stay away from these people.

5. The victim

Victims are the most tricky ones to identify as you initially try to empathize with their problems. But as time goes by, you will realise that they are intentionally choosing pain and suffering to churn pity and sympathy out of people.

Victims will always avoid responsibility and accountability for what they do by giving the excuse of their suffering. Suppose you tried to be assertive with them and politely reject their request for something, they might respond like “I have always been rejected in my life.

Nobody understood my needs. Anyways, no issues.” And there you are, left drenched in guilt for turning them down, feeling like you are the most wretched being on earth.
