The solution appears to be unanimous that the best thing to do is to do whatever you can to remove toxic people from your life. Fire Them! That’s right, fire them! It is always your choice as to whom to include in your inner circle. Just because you are related by blood or bonded as family, or you attended the same high school or are connected by a paycheck; it is up to you to regulate how much of an influence and impact they have on you and your life.

You can always unfollow the people on Facebook who are always wallowing in negativity. Limit your exposure to “friends” and coworkers who bring you down. If you have to, only deal with family members who are negative in measured doses and do so only within the limits that you are comfortable.

Never forget that you have the option to fire the toxic people who are in your life especially if there negativity is having a harmful affect on you. The choice is always yours so why choose to tolerate it when you always have the choice to let them go?

How do you deal with the toxic people in your life? What measures have you taken to protect yourself and to prevent the poisons of others from becoming your own?
