Types of people you should avoid



Negative people
People you don't need in your life

Life itself is already a complicated thing and becomes even more so when you have to bound to people who make things harder rather than ease things for you.

Pessimistic people defy all logic. 

These types of people are unaware of most of the negative impact on the people they are associated with. 

Then there are others who are quite aware of the effects that they have on the people associated with them. 

Those who know that they are very happy to create chaos and disorder in other life.

When you say some of the tension is due to their troubling behavior and when they refuse to change. 

Downsizing that relationship is your healthiest move and there is no need to feel guilty about moving away. 

After all, some links last only a season in your life. In this article, I will be showing you five types of people you don't need in your life. 

1. Manipulators

These types of people take away all your time and suck all your energy from you. 

They pretend to be your friends to get the upper hand on you. 

Manipulative friends know how to get information from you to get to know your weaknesses and use them in their favor. 

They can be tough to act with because they are a real friend. 

They will tell you everything you want to hear as part of their hidden agenda to destroy them. 

They will do what is necessary to kill you. 

Manipulators will talk to you as a friend and asked like they generally care about you. 

Although they do not know what makes you happy and who you are. 

Never lose sight of a manipulative end game. 

They always want something from you and if you look back on your relationship with them, you will notice that they are always getting in the end with everything or whatever is not giving back. 

They will do anything to win you over, so they can work on you. 

Friendship with a manipulative person is not needed. So it is best to cut it off.

Manipulative people do not understand the concept of boundaries. They are relentless in their pursuit of what they want and they have no regard for who gets hurt along the way.

 2. The Unpredictable

Some people have absolutely no control over their emotions or actions. 

They find fault in everyone except themselves. 

They are suspicious that everyone is spying on them and conspiring to take them down and destroy them. 

In most cases, they will present their paranoia to you thinking that you are the cause of their paranoia and condition. 

Finally, erratic people will use you as their emotional toilet and they should be avoided at all costs.

3. The Naysayers


These types of people are prejudiced to anyone and everyone who does not meet their acceptance. 

They have understood everyone within seconds. 

99.9% of the time their initial prior perception of a person is incorrect. 

Instead of appreciating and learning from those who are different from them, disappointing people make others feel as if they are an unwanted disease.

Their minds and opinions are still based on why something will not work instead of how to make it work.

When you refuse to listen to their negativity and move forward with your goals, they always want you to fail, so that they can say I told you it wouldn't work.

If you don't want to lose that friendship explain to the person that their negative words don't help you.

If that doesn't work the best thing to do maybe you should put some space between you and the person.

4. The Demented

While you know these types of people are no fun to be around. 

What you might not realize is that they can have incredibly adverse effects on your mind, motivation, and success. 

Scientific research indicates that negativity is contagious similar to a cold. 

Little wonder why an anonymous writer once advised “always remember that it takes one negative comment to kill a dream quite simply no matter how positive a person you are about your dreams and ambitions.” 

With negative people around you, you may begin to see your goals in a negative light. 

Unfortunately, you cannot accomplish your dreams if you start believing them. 

Demented people make life useless by bringing their negative desire and pessimism into everyone they come in contact with. 

Your motivation to get things done requires that you both be engaged with a goal and also that you think that you can accomplish what you set out to be. 

So when you allow a negative person to drop a negative comment as regards your dream. 

You may be beginning to imagine that you cannot succeed at your goal which can be demotivating. 

They always see the glass as half empty and consider everyone else to be the cause of their problems no matter what those problems may be.

Never the less if their eyes begin to affect you in a negative light then you have to let go of them. 

5. The Victim

Victims have a habit of pity in themselves.

They merely reflect a defenseless child that cannot fend for itself.

Being difficult to identify these types of people, you should initially be sensitive to their situation. 

As time passes, you begin to realize that their time of need is constant and never ends. 

People in the situation actively shirk responsibility or accountability for anything.

The conversation of one who plays the victim is always filled with whining and complaints.

Blaming every other person but never themselves.

Making excuses but never taking personal responsibility are the best indicators of the person being the victim.

They do not see hard times as opportunities to learn and develop. Instead, they see themselves as victims. 

The whole world is out to get them, and they always have an excuse for every negative thing that happens in their lives. 

There is an axiom here: " Pain is inevitable, being miserable is a choice." This axiom describes a pessimistic person to a tee. 

For a pessimist, one would always like to be sad every time.

6. The Conceited people

These types of people consider themselves as Godly figures. 

The conceit is usually a false wall that faces the major insecurity of the person conceiving. 

Arrogant people usually lie about their abilities and achievements. 

Generally, none of their claims have any validity. 

These types of people tend to be lower performers, very offensive, and have more intellectual problems than the average person.

7. The Gossiper


This type of person takes pleasure in the problems of other people. 

Gossipers become the cause of pain and misery of others. 

They have the gift of starting and spreading rumors about someone and they come in contact with everyone, for no apparent reason. 

There are so many positive things to talk about, rather than wasting your time talking about the problems of others or focusing on others. 

If you recognize this type of person in time, then it would be wise for you to avoid this type of person at all costs. 

These types of people destroy people's lives and relationships and take pleasure in doing so. 

Always remember, that great minds discuss great ideas, average minds discuss mediocre thoughts and small minds discuss people.

8. The Resentful

This type of person always thinks that the grass is greener on the other side of the fence. 

They feel that whatever good happens to them is due to luck, never because of what they deserve. 

The reason for this is that they measure their prosperity against the world when they should derive their satisfaction from their merit. 

It is dangerous to spend too much time around resentful people because they teaching you to play down your own accomplishments and not celebrate them due to you earning them.

If have you had one of these people in your life they will not miss any opportunity to make you feel like everything is your fault. 

Put a stop to it before they can start wrapping you in their blame game. 

Goodreads author Hands Hansen once said that people can inspire you or draining you it will be best if now and then you stopped to think and analyze the people in your life whether they are more harmful they are helpful.

They are all around us at home, school, work, and even social spaces - people who suck up their precious time and positive energy to fuel their incredible hunger for drama and negativity.

Some people are like clouds, once they disappear its a beautiful day

The best way to go about it is to limit the time you spend with him or her. For example, when you are around such a person, start your conversation with something like this - I only have a few minutes with you I have important work or some places to go. 

Once the time runs out, excuse yourself politely. As such, he does not have enough time to begin his inconsistent theatrics or negative stories.
