Don't let toxic/negative people rent space in your head. Its time to take control, raise the rent and kick those suckers to the curb.
An important lesson I have learnt over the last few years is that its the quality of your friends not the quantity.
I am surrounded by toxic people on the daily, is it contagious? YES. I would say being around these type of people does not do any good, the best thing you can do is remove yourself from the situation so you too don't turn out to be a miserable just like them!
:::Newsflash::: these people are only holding you back and don't actually serve a purpose in your life.
Tips to escape this toxic BS
Your personal brand and reputation goes far beyond the company you work for, nothing is worth your integrity.
