The miserable one
Do you know someone who makes you feel sad, gloomy and utterly exhausted every time you meet? If your answer is yes, then you might be dealing with an energy vampire. “An energy vampire is somebody who literally zaps your energy dry,” Judith Orloff, MD, a psychiatrist at the University of California-Los Angeles Psychiatric Clinical Faculty. Either by constantly talking about their problems or focusing solely on the negative aspects in any situation, for these people the conversation is only about them and their misfortunes in life.
Sometimes, miserable people are not even aware that they are so cynical and pessimistic until someone else points it out to them. Therefore, if you have a Debbie-Downer in your midst, an honest talk could help them understand every cloud has a silver lining.
2 thoughts on “7 Types Of Toxic People Who Poison Your Life”
Everything I’ve read is what my mother has always done to me. I learned to survive and was successful since she kicked me out at age 14. She refused to see my home when I bought it. She refused to be in my sons life. She disappeared out of my life for years at a time, avoiding my calls. But behind my back she does the “poor me” telling anyone how I won’t call and I’m so ungrateful for all she’s done for me.
I’ve bought her expensive gifts on my single mom budget, I’ve spent my live concerned how to make her happy….she’s stolen several thousand and my Rolex because I don’t deserve them.
Im only adding this to bring awareness that as children we can’t walk away from toxic mothers but it will always be traumatizing.
There are also those people you have in your life that always let you supply the gear for camping, want you to offer to use your things(mixer, deep fryer etc) whenever they might need it but don’t want to purchase their own and then they seem to find a reason to get angry at you before returning your borrowed possession and seem to not want to have an opportunity to return your things!
