“Not all toxic people are cruel and uncaring. Some of them love us dearly. Many of them have good intentions. Most are toxic to our being simply because their needs and way of existing in the world force us to compromise ourselves and our happiness.

Do not tolerate being vilified. Distance yourself from those who seek to take underhanded jabs at you while maintaining their innocence. Such behavior barks of immaturity and a complete disregard for the feelings of others.
