5 Types of people who can ruin your life

Here are five of the most toxic types of people you need to avoid at all costs ruining your day.


Have you ever had someone in your life who just seemed to make everything more difficult? Someone who always managed to make you feel guilty, no matter what you did?

If so, then you know firsthand how much damage one person can do to your life. Unfortunately, there are a lot of people out there who can ruin your life if you let them.

1. A Toxic family member

We all have that one family member who seems to bring drama and negativity wherever they are. If you can, try to distance yourself from such a person as much as possible.

2. The Ex

It's vital to move on from your ex after a breakup. If you still dwell on the past, it's time to let go and move on. Otherwise, your ex will continue to hold on to you and your life.

3. The toxic friend

We all have that one friend who often creates drama. They may always argue with others or gossip about you. Distance yourself from this person for your mental health.

4. A dominating partner

If you’re in a relationship with someone who is always trying to control you, it’s time to get out. They will never let you flaunt your personality and will only give you grief.

5. A negative person

It’s the person who is always negative and sees the bad in everything. They’re the ones who are never happy and always complain. Try to stay away from these people.

How do I not let people ruin my day?

We all have days where nothing seems to go right. Maybe we'll get stuck in traffic. Whatever the case, there are days when everything seems to be against us.

The key thing is not to let other people ruin your day. Just because someone else is having a rough time doesn't mean we have to as well. Here are a few tips on not letting people ruin our day:


Don't take things personally. If someone is snapping at you, it's likely because they're having a bad day, not because of anything you've done.


Don't let other people's negativity bring you down. Surround yourself with positive people who will build you up, not tear you down.


Don't let one unfortunate incident ruin your whole day. If something bad happens, try to find the silver lining.


Focus on the good. When you're having a bad day, it's easy to dwell on all the negative things happening. Instead, try to focus on the positive things in your life.


Be grateful. Sometimes when we're having a bad day, we forget to be thankful for the good things we have. Taking a moment to be grateful for what we have helps turn our day around.


Sometimes the most effective thing you can do is just let it go. If someone is bothering you and you can't shake it off, sometimes it's wise to walk away.


Don’t take things personally. People say something that bothers you doesn’t mean it’s personal. They are just getting on with their lives. That unintentionally bothers us. Don’t take it to heart.

No one is a saint, and we all have off days from time to time. By following these tips, we can keep a positive attitude and have a good day despite what others may be doing.
