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.

“People inspire you, or they drain you — pick them wisely.” – Hans F. Hansen

Recent research from Friedrich Schiller University in Germany shows just how serious toxic people are. They found that exposure to stimuli that cause strong negative emotions — the same kind of exposure you get when dealing with toxic people — caused subjects’ brains to have a massive stress response.

Whether it’s negativity, cruelty, the victim syndrome, or just plain craziness, toxic people drive your brain into a stressed-out state that should be avoided at all costs. Continue reading 10 toxic people you should avoid like the plague

Just a thought

As I sit here writing this post, I take a few minutes to think about all of the things that I have to be grateful for at this moment in my life. I am very happy and thankful for the love and mercy of God. Without that many of you would be visiting me in the cemetery and leaving some nice flowers on the spot that would mark me and my life. When I take that into consideration, I wonder what I need to be doing to make my legacy known to the world. If I was to leave this place tomorrow, how many people would even know that I existed. Now, don’t get me wrong, I am not trying to be famous or extremely admired or known worldwide. I am just wondering if I am doing anything to make the world a better place??? Have I been the best father, husband, friend, employee, mentor, helper, that I can be. Am I using the talent(s) that God has given me to multiply them so that I can return to Him more than He has given to me? Am I being a good stewart with all that the Lord has given me?
