10 Types of Toxic People You Should Avoid In Your Life

Some people are just blissfully unaware of their negativity and some people are so self absorbed that they don't care about the negative impact that they have on other people, while others thrive on creating chaos and drama.

Here are 10 types of people who aren't worth your time and energy.

1. The Gossip

These people gain pleasure from other people's misfortunes because they have nothing going for themselves.  There are so much more interesting and positive people out there to learn from rather than wasting your time talking about other people's misfortunes.

2. The Victim

The victim is tougher to identify because you usually empathize with them and their problems and initially try and help them out.

As time passes though, you realize that their "time of need" is all the time.  Victims usually take no responsibility for their relationship problems and tends to put it off on you all the time because they want to suffer.  

3. The Self Absorbed

Self absorbed people don't care anything about you.  they keep an impassionate distance from other people because they're not interested in building a connection with you and only need you as a tool to boost their own fragile self esteem. 

4. The Envious

Envious people can't appreciate the good things in their life because they're too busy being envious of everyone else's life.  This is because they measure themselves and their forunte against the world and cannot derive satisfaction from within.  Spending too much time with these people can be dangerous because they teach you to trivialize your own accomplishments.

5. The Manipulator

These people can be tricky to deal with because they get to know you, what you like, what you think is funny but then they use this information for a hidden agenda.  They always want something from you and their relationship with you is always take take take with very little or no giving.  They will do anything to win you over so that they can work you.
