Step 9. Cleanse your relationships.
Look at yourself It’s important to consider what you may inadvertently be doing to someone else. Practice mindfulness For the purposes of managing your reactions to toxic people you need to focus on becoming separate from the moment. When you separate yourself from what is happening you become more objective and less emotional and judgemental. To practise mindfulness you need to take a mental step back, breathe slowly to calm your habitual responses and listen without judgement to what is happening. Eliminate In some cases there is nothing you can do to effectively build a protective wall or manage your reaction/response to another person’s behaviour. In these instances, eliminating that person from your life is the only solution. If you cannot completely cut yourself off from an individual who impacts on you in a negative way, you may need to create managed or controlled interactions. Confront Effective communication skills can help you to confront another person without being aggressive or abusive. It allows you to stay in control as you state your case and ask to be treated with more respect. Defuse Learning how to defuse a toxic person requires you to be alert to the strategies the individual uses to cause harm. If you become aware of their behaviour and your reactions to it, you can “nip things in the bud”, protecting yourself against their attempts to harm you.
