  1. Its like you read my mind! You seem to know a lot about this, like you wrote
    the book in it or something. I think that you can do with
    a few pics to drive the message home a bit, but instead of
    that, this is magnificent blog. A fantastic read.
    I will definitely be back.

    1. whats it called when people have others side with them while they make up lies about you? what is being toksic? is it when they start problems with others so they dont have to try to deal with theyr own problems ? how come toksic people dont know thats what they are all while they cover their lies to look better than others? is that the same? do they ever act honest ?thank you in advance?

  2. Hello there! This post could not be written any better! Reading through this post reminds me of my old room mate!
    He always kept chatting about this. I will forward this write-up
    to him. Fairly certain he will have a good read.
    Thank you for sharing!

  3. Example: My wife told be that my mother told her that she knew I was a difficult person to live with. Knowing my mother I knew it was total BS.

  4. MODERATION. IT’s not all black and white. There are colors my man. Every situation are different. We cannot group them together or you destroy some of your read relationships with their partner.

  5. This is a good article. And sounds like precisely what is happening to me. There is a person in my life–who tries to make me feel like I am crazy. And throws adult temper tantrums. If I suggest he should be doing more to help me. Feels like I am sitting on a powder keg–so much of the time. It is indeed frustrating. And makes me feel awful. Which is exactly what they are trying to establish. The sad thing is– I have been good to this person.

  6. My spouse and I stumbled over here coming from a different web address and thought I should check
    things out. I like what I see so now i am following you.
    Look forward to looking into your web page repeatedly.

  7. We are a group of volunteers and opening a brand new scheme in our community.
    Your web site provided us with valuable information to work on. You have performed a formidable job and our entire group will likely be thankful to you.

  8. Unfortunately toxic people in my life are those I love the most & who are closest to me 💔. I have to walk on eggshells and watch every word I speak because they twist & turn everything I say & do to turn it against me. I can ignore outsiders, but when it comes from your closet family members, it’s hard.
