Whenever I do a medical history, one of the first things I watch is the patient’s personal relationships also first things patients collect when they do their psycho-biography are relationships as well, whether they are friends, coworkers, neighbors or partners.
Daily stress can cause harmful effect on the blood, studies prove, in a colloquial term I would say “cells age” For most of us it’s difficult to recognize where so much stress comes from.
We go through life ” like nothing” we feel bad but we don’t know why. But I tell you that there’s may be one or more people in our lives that make us feel disgusting, frustrated and unable to face the day day. Call this “difficult” people, ” stress -inducing ” or let’s be clear ” toxic people .”
You may be more or less vulnerable to these people. Recognizing their behavioral characteristics can being less prone to stress -inducing .
I don’t think is bad using the word “toxic “, I am describing the physical health effects that a person like this can cause you. We all have to be nice to everyone, but not stupid, and today we have to open our eyes in order to protect ourselves.
Toxic people subtly violate our boundaries, they are intrusive and self-centered.
They are demanding, they talk endlessly and they won’t listen to you. They can’t keep secrets, love to gossip. They usually lack empathy.
They are difficult to control as they try to dominate others. You can get in troubles without noticing. They get angry if they do not get what they want normally, because they are very insecure people.
Passive aggressive personalities, they criticize but in a way that they don’t confront anyone face by face. You get into a “trap” and it’s almost impossible to escape .
They have two faces, they say one thing and act exactly the opposite. They have no sense of honor and decency whatsoever.
They are not strong enough to be honest with you, so they are very manipulative. They avoid any uncomfortable situation to deal with.
But why we are attracted by these kind of people? Sometimes it ‘s because you’re weak, don’t get me wrong. Many of us are more comfortable with what is already known that we are willing to meet. Maybe we ourselves don’t wannna face old struggles. Or we are with these people because we believe that we aren’t going to find anything better.
Please, if you see these traits in someone close to you do something. As I always say , the only behavior you can change, for sure! is yours.
