3 Ways To Protect Yourself From Toxic People.

In today’s post, I wanted to share with you 3 ways to protect yourself from toxic people. Without further ado, let’s jump into the post!

CONFRONTING

As long as you are respectful and tell what’s on your mind, I don’t think confronting that person is a bad idea. Sometimes, it will help you not feel regretful. You will never have a regret that you didn’t speak up for yourself. In addition, by speaking up it will give you more reasons why that person isn’t good for your life.

Tant que vous êtes respectueux et dites ce que vous pensez, je ne pense pas que confronter cette personne soit une mauvaise idée. Parfois, cela vous aidera à ne pas avoir de regrets. Vous ne regretterez jamais de ne pas avoir parlé pour vous-même. De plus, en prenant la parole, cela vous donnera plus de raisons pour lesquelles cette personne n’est pas bonne pour votre vie.

IGNORING

This is something that’s completely contrasting to the previous point but sometimes, silence is the best solution. Ignoring will obviously make the other person feel more outraged because they don’t like to feel they didn’t get their way but it will save you from draining your energy and time for something that unnecessary when you could use that time to do something that you enjoy & love.

C’est quelque chose qui contraste complètement avec le point précédent mais parfois, le silence est la meilleure solution. Ignorer rendra évidemment l’autre personne plus outrée parce qu’elle n’aime pas avoir l’impression qu’elle n’a pas réussi, mais cela vous évitera de gaspiller votre énergie et votre temps pour quelque chose d’inutile alors que vous pourriez utiliser ce temps pour faire quelque chose que vous appréciez et aimez.

BLOCKING

I’m pretty sure this is something obvious but you can’t expect to live a peaceful life while having that person in your life. They will only bring toxicity and negativity at every chance they get. Removing a toxic person isn’t easy but it’s doable. They won’t let you go easily but once they realise that you are not going to change your mind, they will lose interest in you and look for another prey.

Je suis sûr que c’est quelque chose d’évident, mais vous ne pouvez pas vous attendre à vivre une vie paisible tout en ayant cette personne dans votre vie. Ils n’apporteront que de la toxicité et de la négativité à chaque occasion. Éliminer une personne toxique n’est pas facile, mais c’est faisable. Ils ne vous laisseront pas partir facilement mais une fois qu’ils se rendront compte que vous n’allez pas changer d’avis, ils se désintéresseront de vous et chercheront une autre proie.

  1. Hey NL 😀

    I think I agree with you by and large, but I would name tip #2 and tip #3 differently… but I am not certain whether we agree or disagree on the terminology, so I want to run it by you & maybe get your take on it?

    For #2, I would call this setting those boundaries *yourself* and / or becoming clear about your *own* priorities. I think the idea is basically a matter of “return on investment” (ROI) on time. There are many things I would rather occupy my time with than nuisances … and in economic theory there is even a smooth transition from “goods” to “bads” (“bads” — like trash or whatever — are, in a way, “less than zero” goods). Whatever the wording, I think this about establishing own boudarires and/or prioritzing preferences.

    For #3, this is where I would talk about ignoring. I don’t generally like the idea of ignorance, but it’s when Winnie the Pooh might be motivated to declare a “BOTHER”, then I would indeed *route around* such bothers. Life is too short for bothering about anything like that. What I find intriguing, though, is when people adjust the settings on such websites as FB or whatever and ask the software to manage what people can also ignore on their own. What these *USERS* don’t realize, is that this information is actually valuable … insofar as they are telling the people spying on them which types of buttons to push in order to get the user’s attention. In a similar manner, I usually don’t bother with spam filters — unless it’s actually my *own* filtering software, because otherwise the advertising company (e.g. GOOG or G-mail or whatever) will use that information *AGAINST* their own users in order to manipulate the stuff they click on (in order for the GOOG to make even more astronomical sums of money).

    I realize this is much more complicated than your simple advice, but I also think people need to become more *critical* thinkers in this regard (or else it will continue to be a piece of cake for the companies to *get rich quick* by continuing to mislead people down rabbit holes toward their advertising customers).

  2. I met two toxic people, in the end I am sad I invested so much time in them but managed to get away in the end. I made my life a whole lot better. Thanks for the post.

    1. I’m so sorry to hear that but I’m glad that you managed to cut them out of your life, at the end that’s what matters the most. My pleasure, thank you so much for reading ☺️
