The world is a diverse place and everyday we come across people who are different from us in various aspects. One such aspect is people’s moodiness and dealing with it is a difficult task to do. There are many reasons for mood swings and some of them need our attention, care and support.
But along with thinking about others’ welfare, we also need to take care of ourselves and protect ourselves from getting harmed in any manner because, there is one specific type of negative moody behavior – the toxic bully. Such behavior usually grows from selfishness and callousness that can bring out the worst form of one self. Just being around toxic behavior makes people sick , because they use mood swings to intimidate, manipulate and can even harm people. Always being surrounded by such negativity can make you feel low and hamper your growth in life.
So, how to get rid of them?
1) Just Move On
Being with people whose world revolves around themselves, who always think about their own benefit and can go to any extent to get it, is putting yourself at a great risk. So it is better to put such people out of life, doing so makes you a lot more relaxed and positive. Letting go of such people doesn’t mean that you harm them it simply means that you care about yourself.
2) Stop Pretending and Start Speaking
Toxic people use their mood as a weapon and try to manipulate you in order to get their own good. And if you keep tolerating their behavior they get more confident that what they are doing is absolutely right and become more forceful! So you need to put them in their place and make them realise that it won’t work.
3) Stop Getting Affected at a Personal Level
Sometimes toxic people will try to manipulate by targeting you personally. In such case, by reacting to them you will make them succeed. Instead, you need to remain calm and stop taking their actions personally because doing so will totally fail their intentions of playing with your mind and getting their work done.
4) Practice Practical Compassion
Sometimes the toxic behavior shown by people might be because they are going through a tough time. They may be depressed, distressed, physically or mentally ill. Such people need our love, attention and care. Slight guidance can help them change and get to the right path. This doesn’t mean that you warn them every time they do something wrong as this might make their condition even worse – sometimes making them realize their mistake is good for them.
“When a Toxic person can no longer control you, they will try to control how others see you. The misinformation will feel unfair, but stay above it, trusting that other people will eventually see the truth, just like you did.”
