For many of us, Christmas is going to be a smaller affair this year. This might come as a relief for many of you … perhaps you now have the excuse to avoid certain toxic people in your circle.
But for others, this might pose a problem … because you are now going to be in closer proximity with someone you’ve done your level best in avoiding.
In this episode, I identify the 12 Toxic Characters and their behaviors that might cause you problems.
Better still I am offering suggestions on how to deal with these people and how to diffuse certain situations.
Toxic individuals can bring out the worst in us - but also they can have an adverse effect on our wellbeing and mental health - and that’s not OK.

3. The Time Lord
4. Mr / Mrs (Always) Right
5. The Worry Wort
6. The Victim
7. The Drainer & Complainer
8. The Naysayer & Hater
9. The Petulant Child
10. The Gossip Monger
11. The Social Leap-Frogger
