There are people in your life who are anything but pleasant. They are toxic, that is, they fill you with negativity whenever they interact with you. They conspire, they like unhealthy gossip and they spread rumors which are responsible for straining relationships. In order to deal with negative people, you need to follow three simple steps and keep yourself away from these toxic people completely.
1. Avoid them
The first step is to avoid these people who are nasty and spread pessimism whenever they come close to you. Stay away from them as they talk mostly about the negative facets of other people. These are the people who also try and make you feel jealous of someone. They try and convince you that life is unfair and you must hate a lot of people for that. You must at all costs avoid them in some way or the other. Do not receive their calls, pretend you are busy when they call you and turn your face when you see them on the road. Make it clear that you detest their acquaintance.
2. Do not argue with them
Negative people are very insecure and are constantly complaining about everyone and everything and manipulating you to do the same. They also often resort to accusing you unnecessarily, mainly to depict themselves as the sufferers in a bid to change your attitude the way they want. In such cases, never argue with them for they will never understand and even if they do, they will pretend not to. So instead of defending yourself, turn deaf ears to whatever they say. Do not react to anything they say. Let them blabber on and eventually when they see that you are unaffected, they will stop.
3. Abandon them
When you have successfully brought yourself to follow the first two steps, you can move on to the third and the final step. This is where you cut these toxic people out of your life completely. After you have constantly avoided them for a considerable amount of time and have stopped reacting to whatever they say, you are ready to abandon them completely from your life. Stop thinking about them and considering their presence in any situation whatsoever and you will have crossed them out entirely from your life.
Dealing with negative people might seem difficult, if these people have become an integral part of your life. But for your own good, you need to remove them from your life and stop them from contaminating you any further.
