“People inspire you, or they drain you—pick them wisely.” – Hans F. Hansen



I know you are used to those fun make-up and fashion posts but sometimes we like to get a little real. We've been receiving numerous E-mails where people want us to talk about Toxic People , Toxic Relationships , Toxic Jobs and so on. We thought we would have a little detox here at Haute People where we share our tips as we are no perfect and have been around all of the above! Today's it's all about toxic people.


Who is a Toxic Person?

According to Gale, it’s common for people with toxic behavior to: create drama in their lives or be surrounded by it; try to manipulate or control others; be needy (“it is all about them all the time”); use others to meet their needs (such as “narcissistic parents”); be extremely critical of themselves and others; be jealous and envious of others, bemoaning their bad fortune and others’ good fortune; abuse substances or harm themselves in other ways, and be unwilling (or unable) to seek help from loved ones, a therapist or a recovery program.



Here are 5 Toxic People you Need to Avoid

The Gossiper: This person knows everybody's Business and makes it their duty to tell it to everyone. These people find it fun to dig into people's business ... they literally sit and research social media accounts , photos and so on.

The Victim: I have personally been around a person like this and let me tell you this person is one of the worst! This person always feels like it's always somebody else's fault as they never take responsibility for their actions. These people are usually tough to spot as you always find yourself empathizing with them.

The Temperamental: Code Red ! Code Red! This is the quote , unquote "psycho". One minute they are happy ... the next minute they are sad. Another time they are wiling to help you .. the next minute they want to destroy you. These people are easy to spot and if I was you .. I would stay clear!


Negative Ned/Nancy: Nothing positive ever comes from this person. It's all negative words and actions .. "I can't", "this won't work", "not" , "no" . These people are like a BIG GREY CLOUD over your life everyday!


The Manipulator: I was once friends with a manipulator and boy did she dupe us! These people play on your emotions and weaknesses .. they are the most helpful and supportive until they catch you in their tracks! They are tricky to deal with because they treat you like a friend but they have an hidden agenda. They'll do anything to win you over so they can work you over!

Toxic people will drain you if you allow them and make they feel as miserable as you! Be sure to stand clear of these people once you spot them and don't allow them to drag you into their vortex! Keep the conversation going .. comment below! If you're shy Email us
