10 toxic people you should avoid like the plague

Written by Travis Bradberry

Toxic people defy logic. Some are blissfully unaware of the negative impact that they have on those around them, and others seem to derive satisfaction from creating chaos and pushing other people’s buttons.

As important as it is to learn how to deal with different kinds of people, truly toxic people will never be worth your time and energy — and they take a lot of each. Toxic people create unnecessary complexity, strife, and, worst of all, stress.

This was a very powerful blog post. Unfortunately, it is not surprising that in the times that we are living in that this type of thing is happening. The evil men do is still the evil that men do. I love ALL my brothers and sisters, ALL of them. When will the day come that we all love one another???? I would hope that the church would be different than the world, but how can it be when both are filled with sinful people???
