5 Signs of a Toxic Person
#1 They’re somehow always the victim. Their life would be sooooo much better if everyone and everything around them just got their shit together. Phrases that might tip you off … it’s not my fault - this is bullshit - this always happens to me.
#2 You feel emotionally exhausted after spending time with them. You can literally feel them draining your energy = don’t let their negative emotion cooties jump off on you! PS - for more about the very real energy we put off check out the episode on Raising Your Vibration
#3 They love telling you what you CAN’T or shouldn’t even try to do. That’s a reflection on their own limiting beliefs, not yours. Ever notice how people who are too scared to do shit tell u what’s impossible for you? Don’t let EXPERTS on not trying influence your decisions.
#4 They’re the queen (or king!) of laying a guilt trip on people. Tip off phrases - If you were really my friend/loved me/ cared at all you would (fill in the blank)
#5 They have ZERO respect for boundaries.
