The 6 most toxic behaviors I see every day are:

1. Taking everything personally
People are toxic to be around when they believe that everything that happens in life is a direct assault on them or is in some way all about them. The reality is that what people say and do to you is much more about them, than you. People’s reactions to you are about their filters, and their perspectives, wounds and experiences. Whether people think you’re amazing, or believe you’re the worst, again, it’s more about them. I’m not saying we should be narcissists and ignore all feedback. I am saying that so much hurt, disappointment and sadness in our lives comes from our taking things personally when it’s far more productive and healthy to let go of others’ good or bad opinion of you, and to operate with your own heart, intuition and wisdom as your guide. So yes – don’t take anything personally.

2. Obsessing about negative thoughts

One thought on “6 Toxic Behaviors That Push People Away”

  1. Kevan, Thanks for the resources and thoughts. I have some to share as well. You mentioned that Buffer spends closer to zero, but do those handling social media for Buffer not get paid to do so? There seems to be an ongoing ‘tale’ about social media marketing being free. But it’s not free. Even if a business uses only free tools, there’s still a cost. There’s opportunity cost (how else could you have spent your time and energy?) and the cost of the person handling social media – even business owners like me who handle our own social media are ‘spending’ our time. Thoughts?
