Some are blissfully unaware of the negative impact that they have on those around them. While others seem to derive satisfaction from creating chaos and pushing other people’s buttons.
Dealing with toxic people is something we all have to confront in our lives from time to time. It can be tempting to give toxic people the same treatment they give to others, but of course, that never works. These individuals aren’t capable of much self-reflection, and turnabout only makes them see themselves as victims. Having said that, it’s important to understand the psychology behind toxic behavior, which is often a way of confronting a difficult personal situation. It’s certainly not fair that these people make others deal with their pain. Not to mention, causing others to feel bad provides no relief. Nevertheless, the toxic behavior directed at you doesn’t always contain ill-intentions, anger, or resentment.
The best way to deal with difficult people is to use techniques that are commonly practiced by intelligent people. Yes, toxic people create drama and chaos. But, you don’t have let them ruin your life and hinder your progress! Implementing these techniques will allow you to handle difficult people more effectively, and decrease the likelihood of their ill effects on you.
