 Trying to understand a toxic person is like trying to chase after a wild animal. It is a very tall order and a very discouraging task. Sometimes the best approach is to walk away completely before you become their prey. It is hard to imagine the extent of and kind of damages caused by someone who is toxic. The damage can be minimal (if you get away as soon as possible and have not revealed everything to this person about your life) or it can be extreme (costing money, time, energy, and even your rights). The goal of the toxic person, who has you as their prey, is to milk you for all you are worth. They don’t care. They don’t mind going the extra mile to harm you.

This article will discuss 2 tactics of the toxic person. Next week I will discuss ways to cope and avoid these kind of people.

Who is the toxic person?

Once you begin to feel negative vibes from the person you are in a relationship with, it is time to design a plan on either how to deal with the behavior or run away from it. As I’ve stated in previous articles on this topic, “running away” from the person does not connote weakness. In fact, the ability to determine when you are not capable of coming against a detrimental or dangerous person is actually wise. Why stay and fight when you don’t have the tools to win?

CORONA VIRUS1050 Lincoln Way, Ste 1 - Pittsburgh PA

Trying to understand all of the chaos associated with the #coronavirus can feel very overwhelming.

I want to let ALL of my clients/patients who come to Anchored Child & Family Counseling or who see me for consultations know that I am taking the necessary steps to ensure that all of the families and individuals who come to the office are safe and healthy.

Please know that, in the event Anchored Child & Family Counseling is asked to alter its hours or close for the safety of all clients/patients, I will be offering tele-health (online, computer, or phone) services. Although I do not anticipate this happening any time soon, this is important to be prepared for.

I also want to assure you that if I receive any information regarding the corona virus that involves your insurance and/or your care I will let you know as soon as possible.

Although many of the new reports may appear to be or feel exaggerated, as you know keeping our eyes open and making smart decisions is essential.

Please let me know if you have questions!
