Toxic people can be in your life in the form of a partner, friend, or even a family member. The one thing they all have in common is that they will manipulate you into doing things you would not normally do. Toxic people can take a huge toll on your mental health and self-esteem. It is common to find yourself feeling worse about yourself after spending time with a toxic person. They will try to make you feel inferior so that they are better able to control you. You will find them constantly pointing out your flaws and bringing up your shortcomings in private or in company. This is not to say that everyone that criticizes you is toxic. The difference lies in the intention behind criticism. Toxic people tell you hoping to bring you down and make you feel unworthy, whereas true well-wishers only criticize constructively and want you to get better.

Let these carefully chosen 30 toxic people quotes help you find the strength to finally remove toxic people from your life. Don’t feel guilty about removing people that are weighing you down. You deserve to be treated with respect and kindness and you should never let anyone make you think otherwise.
