Choosing the Right Time to Rid Toxic People from Your Life

The poisonous effects of toxic people can cause real damage in your life.

Choosing to rid toxic people from your life is sometimes one of the hardest things in the world to do. As you read this article, you can probably relate to some of the reasons why this is true.

But during the COVID-19 crisis, there’s one thing that most of us have in abundance, and that’s time to be alone with our thoughts. That includes reflecting on our lives and the people in them.



Toxic people exist all over the world, no matter what walk of life they come from, or where they happen to live. No one is immune to having to interact with toxic strangers, but what about the toxic people in our lives that we know? How should we deal with various levels of toxicity, when it’s coming from those we know and love?

Dangerous Toxins Everywhere

Toxic people are the ones who are always in a bad mood, always getting you into trouble, or always having something negative to say.

When it comes to toxic people in our lives; they may be hard to recognize, but don’t be fooled. There are dangerous toxins everywhere. By the time most people reach adolescence, they’ve already encountered at least one toxic friend or family member. I was personally exposed to a number of toxic individuals — both family and so called friends.

Think about it for a moment. Toxic people are the ones who are always in a bad mood, always getting you into trouble, or always having something negative to say. You know the ones. In fact, there’s a strong possibility that in some people’s eyes, you may even be the toxic person that comes to their mind. If that’s the case, you’ll need to start working on your attitude so people start seeing you in a different light.

Toxic People Are Harmful to Health

Toxic people can be just as harmful to your health as any other poisonous toxin that you encounter. In a related article, I shared how toxic people can really be counterproductive to someone who is a freelancer, entrepreneur, or self-starter.


Even though the “harmful effects” you suffer don’t typically manifest in a physical way, toxic people can still cause harm. Notice some of the common ways that toxic people can affect our lives, whether they mean to or not.

  • Talk down to and lower your self-esteem
  • Encourage, entice, coerce you to commit bad, illegal, or negative acts
  • Deny, belittle, or ignore your accomplishments

It goes without saying, that this type of behavior can (and usually will) result in something negative happening to you or in your life. If you determine that you have toxic people who are regularly in your midst, now is the time to do some self-analysis. Sometimes we find ourselves in situations where we have no choice but to accept the circumstances. But more often than not, we find ourselves in bad situations (and bad company) because we fail to evaluate things clearly.

Remove Toxins from Your Life

…you wouldn’t sample a little poison just because it was cherry flavored and it smelled really good.

When we stop and take the time to evaluate people and situations more thoroughly, we can see more clear. If you suspect that you have toxic people affecting your life, stop and determine to what extent those people need to be “in your circle.” Toxic family members may be hard to avoid, just like toxic neighbors, co-workers, acquaintances and even friends. But there is a big difference in general interactions with toxic people, versus electing to spend all your time with those individuals.

You shouldn’t simply dibble and dabble with toxic people, just because they’re family or old friends, just like you wouldn’t sample a little poison just because it was cherry flavored and it smelled really good. Toxic is toxic, and that’s why toxic people should be viewed as any other poison.
