We’ve all had toxic people try to seduce us with their poison.
You might be one of the lucky few who gets an apology from someone who’s being toxic, but trust me, it won’t be an honest one.
It’s difficult to handle toxic people in our lives, especially when it’s someone close to you, such as a family member, friend, or romantic partner.
Sometimes they might be closer to you than you might realize and you weren’t even aware of their toxicity.
The awful thing is that they really hurt our emotions and never feel bad about it.
They might pretend as though they do, but those emotions aren’t genuine.
The truth is that they might say they sorry about something they’ve done to us, but it won’t hold water.
And whatever excuses you keep making to have them stick around, just stop doing it because they don’t deserve to be in your life.
They’ll constantly bring you down, doing anything they can to belittle you.
They use everything to their advantage to gain things in their own lives, while at the same time refusing to lend a hand to you whenever you find yourself in a tricky situation.
And what’s even worse, we give them our time and attention, which they don’t deserve, and they have more to say in our lives than they actually should.
Don’t think that toxic people will admit to the mistakes they made. They won’t.
But instead of pushing them out of our lives, we keep forgiving them and letting them stay.
They project all of their insecurities onto us to protect themselves from the ugly truth.
They can’t handle the reality and there’s nothing you can do to change their perception.
But why can’t they accept they made a mistake? Why do they refuse to admit they’re wrong and move on with their lives?
We all make mistakes. Nobody’s perfect and that’s okay.
However, toxic people don’t believe in that. They truly think they’re perfect in every sense.
They honestly think they can’t be wrong, even when you provide them with facts to disprove them.
They simply make excuses for their bad behavior and move on as if nothing happened.
It’s always someone else’s fault and not theirs. But it’s your fault for making an effort to prove to them they made a mistake.
You shouldn’t have to do that – they will never admit they’re imperfect.
You’ll always be the one to blame, no matter what.
Even if you had to catch them cheating and confront them about it, they will find an excuse to make you the bad guy instead of accepting their mistake.
And since it’s not their fault, they won’t feel the need to apologize for anything.
You should quit pointing out their mistakes – you’ll just end up apologizing to them.
They’ll twist and turn the truth in their favor just so they don’t feel obliged to say they’re sorry.
If you’ve ever dealt with these kinds of people then you’ll probably know this.
They simply aren’t mature enough to take responsibility for their actions. They’ll always blame someone else, be it their ex or their parents.
Don’t expect them to admit to the mistakes they made, they won’t do that.
Toxic people will try to shift the responsibility from them onto others because they believe they’re perfect. They won’t own up to it.
And even if they do apologize – say for example they cheated on you – they’ll throw in details about how it was the other person’s fault or how badly you mistreated or neglected them.
If you gather the courage to confront them for their mistakes, know that they’re going to use everything they can against you to prove it wasn’t their fault, and instead, tell you it was yours.
Don’t think that toxic people will ever admit to the mistakes they make.
They’re never going to reflect on their choices and accept the simple truth that they need to change something about themselves.
They need to change their priorities, the way they think, and be courageous enough to say “I’m sorry for what I’ve done to you.”
But that won’t happen so easily. No matter how much you love them, you’re never going to win an argument with them.
Even if you bring in other people to prove they’re wrong, they will never acknowledge their faults.
What’s even worse, they’ll go to extreme lengths to prove their innocence to you. They’ll create something out of nothing – lies, deception, and rumors.
You can scream at them as loud as you want, but that won’t make a difference.
They already created their own truth and own world in which they’re perfect and others aren’t.
Believe me, you shouldn’t waste your precious time on someone who is going to ruin your happiness.
You shouldn’t bend over backward in an endless attempt to please them – you won’t succeed.
Your best option is to let them go, no matter what role they play in your life.
Toxic people will always defend their truth. Don’t think for a second that toxic people will admit or confess they’re in the wrong.
On that note, you deserve better than that. You deserve to be treated with love and respect.
You deserve someone who’ll support you and be there for you when push comes to shove.
And toxic people can’t provide you with that. That’s why you need to move on from them.
Don’t think you owe them any explanation for you leaving, because you owe it to yourself to feel happy again.
Life is too short to spend it on meaningless people. Toxic people don’t deserve a place by your side. So, just walk away from them.
Remember that toxic people will never own up to their mistakes and shortcomings.
No matter how hard it is to let go of them, no matter how badly you might want to help them, you need to think about your own wellbeing.
You have to realize that you’re protecting yourself by letting go of those toxic people in your life.
You don’t have to suffer just so that others can have their way.
