Do not tell the person who is carrying you that he stinks is a wise saying in the language of proverbs have been passed down for generations in African culture.
Toxic people stink
Nothing satisfies them, even if they achieve a goal or get something they want. It seems like they have an insatiable hunger. They just never feel full. They usually have had it tough early on.
Perhaps they came from an abusive family, or they went through something traumatic that was not handled right. Toxic people look for the big payback every time.
When you are in their company, you feel a sense that you “owe” them something, and you cannot quite put a finger on what that is. Anger is an emotion that they easily go to.
They are either churning about something that happened in the past resenting how they were treated or finding fault with what is going on in the present.
You feel like you have to watch your every word when you are around them. There is no one, in their opinion, which has had it worse off than them. Moreover, they can trade you story after story.
If you seriously listen to their scenarios and try to help, you cannot. They simply do not want to change, no matter what you do. These people are so wrapped up in themselves; there is no room for your feelings and needs. They are too busy thinking about themselves and their next moves. You will never when toxic people over.
