TOXIC BEHAVIOURS THAT PUSH PEOPLE AWAY

We sometimes wonder why friendships have ended or why we don’t socialise as much as before…could it be that one of these toxic behaviours are pushing people away???

 

ENVY

Envy is the art of counting someone else’s blessings instead of your own. You will never be able to appreciate the things you have, if you keep crying over what you don’t have. Envy/jealousy, Is a waste of time and not worth losing a friendship over.

TOO SENSITIVE

……it’s difficult being around people who take everything personally. People who feel like the world is out to get them.

VICTIM MENTALITY

…we all have the ability to change what we don’t like…stop playing victim all the time, and either take a stance or keep it to yourself…nobody likes being around a “cry baby” all the time…

UNABLE TO GET OVER PAIN AND LOSS

…although this is definitely one of the most difficult situations to get over in your life, it can be done. Pain is like a summer storm, it can be calm and serene one moment, and then, without warning, the skies can open up and it pours.  You need to fight hard to let go of the pain, but part of it will always remain with you. That’s the part we need to control, so that we do not push people away…

NEGATIVITY

…the worst person to be around is a negative person. Yes, this world is full of negative events that take place every day,,,but if we spend too much time focusing only on the negative, we miss out on all the beautiful positive things around us….including our friends who are too afraid to be happy in front of us…

CONSTANTLY JUDGING OTHERS

…..”only look down on a person if you are helping them up”

None of us have the right to judge a person until we have walked a mile in his shoe. Yet, we are too quick to do just the opposite of that….judge them today, and you will judge me tomorrow…people don’t want to be around people like that.

LIES

…..hurt me with the truth, but don’t comfort me with lies… you can’t expect people to connect with you if you can’t connect with yourself. Lying to yourself only makes it more difficult for others to get to know the real you..

SEEKING CONSTANT PRAISE AND ATTENTION

…………I don’t need to “like” every picture of yourself you post on social networks, and that’s okay. You don’t need people to constantly tell you how pretty and awesome you are… expecting praise all the time will eventually distance you from people who really like the real you.

 

UNAPPRECIATIVE

….. The constant complainer who has everything yet nothing. The one who does not notice what his friends DON’T have, but complains about what he still needs.  Always asking for more, but never grateful for what he already has…

 

None of us are perfect, we each have a quality deep within us, that has the power to destroy beautiful relationships.

Recognising toxic behaviours and changing it, will definitely ensure your circle of friendship grows bigger….awareness is the key…
