On The Skids
We are all simple human beings;
and as such, we all act in damaging ways
from time to time — sometimes, not even
But there is a great number of individuals,
who constantly push other people away
with their attitudes and behaviours.
All these people have a difficult life;
because, they certainly have various problems
with their personal relationships, troubles
with their friendships and probably they
will be straggling in their jobs.
Every person who displays such negative,
destructive and very harmful behaviour,
must recognise their problem, and take all
the necessary steps to find an immediate
solution before it is too late.
Your personal attitude should never be allowed
to take over; because you are jeopardising
your happiness and success in your life.
Kiss Of Death
Here are the most common poisonous behaviours
individuals exhibit, and push other people away
as a consequence:
a) Taking everything personally.
You need to disregard and ignore other people’s
opinions, attitudes and behaviours.
Because mostly and mainly this has to do only with
them, their mindsets, knowledge and experiences;
and not you.
b) Hanging on to pain and loss.
You must leave behind all distress and bitterness, and
accept change, because life is changing all the time.
Be emotionally free and move forward.
c) Lacking compassion and integrity.
You have to be kind, sympathetic, sincere and friendly
to other people.
It is only then that you will show how mentally
advanced you are.
d) Thinking negatively all the time.
You should stop being a pessimist and embrace
optimism in order to have a successful life.
Be a positive thinker.
e) Being a perfectionist.
You ought to keep an open mind and accept
mistakes and failures, either they are yours
or other people’s.
Perfection does not exist.
f) Acting like a victim constantly.
You must stop complaining about everything
that happens to you and to the world.
Accept you are a powerful person, and find
solutions to all problems.
g) Looking always for recognition.
You need to feel secure with who you are.
Do not talk about yourself continually or be
It shows low self-esteem, and it is absolutely
draining on other people.
h) Losing control of yourself.
You have to manage your emotions, be patient
and do not explode at every turn.
No one wants to deal with your big dramas.
i) Being jealous of other people.
Feeling envious and resentful of other people’s
life and accomplishments is catastrophic to you.
You only need to compete with yourself in order
to be able to grow — and no one else.
There are plenty of people, who have harmful,
destructive and poisonous personalities.
They are everywhere: at your work, in your
family, among your close friends and among
You need to become aware and wise.
You must recognise the problems in your attitude
and behaviour, and correct them immediately.
If you do not do this, people will very soon realise
what and who you are.
Not only they will try to avoid you and distance
themselves from you, but also they will definitely
remove you from their life completely;
and as a result, you will suffer the consequences.
