As human beings, we can’t help but be influenced by what the people around us say and do. Inevitably, toxic people come into our lives—people who drag us down instead of building us up (or at least, not harming us!) If someone drains you of energy, makes you lose confidence or feel worse about yourself, cut off contact.
This is easier said than done, since we all want to be loved or at least liked. Try applying a checklist. Ask yourself a few key questions.
Does that person…
- Talk only about themselves?
- Focus solely on what I can do for them?
- Make me feel stressed or heavy at the thought of interacting with them?
- Suck me into a negative mind-frame?
- Make me doubt my abilities?
If you answered yes to even one of these, it’s time to either change your responses—or cut the cord.
Hang Out with Positive People
There’s a second part to getting rid of toxic people in your life: Actively replace them positive people instead! Join a networking group to find like-minded women in your field. If you rid yourself of the overly-critical or doom-and-gloomers, you’ll quickly find yourself attracting more of the same type if you don’t seek out positive people to connect with. Hanging out with positive people will raise your energy and vibrations—and toxic people will no longer be attracted to you.
