Further to our talk about the signs of toxic people:
– They cannot stand the thought that they might be wrong; they need to be right all the time. They argue their point of view till you give up out of exhaustion, no matter how tiny the issue is. It does not matter what you may feel or think or what the truth is.
Their need to be right dominates common sense and even truth; they may even take their fight to the legal system, wasting time and huge costs happily, often over trivial matters. They are bitter and determined adversaries, so if you ever cross a toxic person, be prepared for a fight. In their quest to be seen as right, they are ready to lie, misdirect and fabricate.
– They always complain that bad things keep happening to them; they get food poisoning at their wedding, their flat gets burgled or their favorite dress gets lost by the dry cleaner, etc. They enjoy the sympathy and attention they get; they always surround themselves with drama.
Whatever the reason, you will find a toxic person dwell excessively on any negative experience that afflicts them, as they thrive on drama, sucking the positive energy from those around them.
– They are too eager, making you feel pressured and smothered. Emotionally healthy people know that relationships take time to build, so they give you the space you need. On the other hand, toxic people are in a haste to know you personally or start a business relationship with you.
A big warning sign of a selfish person is lack of appreciation of your feelings or needs; it does not bode well when you are bound to them through friendship or contracts.
