    Oh my god I have someone who does all of those things to me most of the time! It’s a big battle I have in a quest to remove them! Thanks for sharing and for all your helpful tips. The main thing I have been doing is stay calm and ignore as best I can to make sure I keep my inner peace. I can’t allow someone, anyone to destroy that! Xxxxx

      I still have a family member that does these things and I used to have a best friend who continually competed and put me down. I learnt you can’t always control them, but the more you build yourself and find self happiness, the less you care. Sometimes you have to be cold turkey and cut them out. I understand the ignoring. Never allow someone to destroy your inner peace! You’re right. Xxxx

        I’ve bookmarked your post to keep reminding me! It’s inspired me to write a post on this also so I can get some of it out. You’re right you can’t control them but you definitely can control the way you react and deal with it! Xxx

          Aww I don’t think anyone has ever been inspired by my posts before – not that I’m aware of! I would love to read about it. It was super therapeutic to write and even you commenting now, has again reminded me about these points. Xxx

    Great tips and advice. I think I’ve experienced all of these. I even had a “friend” that never supported the things I did or complimented on anything, it was like she didn’t even acknowledge it until everyone else started to give me compliments and she’s just like “oh yeah when you gon make me one” smh. We’re no longer friends. I’ve seen a lot of people do these things to others as well.

      Yeh unfortunately I had a “friend” very similar. She would compete with everything and then anytime she needed something, I would help, but when the roles were reversed, she was unresponsive. Life is so much better when these toxic people are out of your life! x

    it’s true! those who try to drag people down are the ones who are never truly happy and satisfied with who they are. So instead of trying to elevate themselves up, they bring other down because that’s probably much easier to do. I had a good read from your post, will definitely be tuning in cause you can never get enough positivity in your life:) Great job!

    I love this post! I think I’ve experienced every one of them, and to be completely honest I’ve been guilty of doing some of those things too. I’m glad I’ve learned to check myself when I’m feeling a little too cocky or full of myself. Thank you for posting this! 🙂

    I have met a few people in my life who is just purely toxic and an utter waste of time and energy to try and work with. Most of them just shows their dissatisfaction and talk behind my back without having the courage to say it to my face directly which I think is a very cowardly move. It’s true what you said regarding competition cause there are always going to be people out there who are better than you and if you base your self-esteem or achievements based on the number of people you have beaten, it’s very unhealthy mindset. Great post^^!

    I loved your wise words; I agree, seeing that you won’t get along with everyone is part of growing up. I totally agree with you saying to ignore the copycats, it’s honestly a waste of your time. Great post!

    I have probably experienced every scenario you have mentioned! It’s a sad truth of life, that we have to realize. Not everyone is going to care about you, and not everyone is nice. It used to bother me a lot, but with time, I have just learn to ignore the haters and stay strong! You give extremely great advice on how to just do you xxx

      Thank you! It is a sad truth of life and what’s unfortunate is people seem to display these types of behaviors even when they are adults. You have to definitely stay strong in life and remember people’s actions say more about them then it does about you. xx

    Great post! The older you get the easier it is to put these tips to use. As a child/teen/young adult, and still being impressionable and still trying to find your way, it is easy to get wrapped up with people who are these types, or even become these types. Not to say that adults can’t get wrapped up in all of these, as well.

    “Be stronger than their weak opinions. Down talk especially, why entertain it? Cut the conversation. Your ears deserve more!”

    I love this so much! Yes, your ears deserve so much more!

    Thank you for this wonderful post. Very insightful with great advice. 🙂

      I understand what you mean. Even going from my teenage years to now, I realised how impressionable I was and how I would easily get caught up with the wrong crowds. Thank you so much for taking the time to read and I’m happy you found it insightful.


I would love to read your thoughts!
