Everyone has people in their lives that affect them in a negative way. Of course, we can’t always choose our relatives or co-workers, but we can find ways to deal with them or to limit our contact. In fact, when it comes to relatives, if they fit any of the 10 categories we are going to list below, perhaps you are better off simply leaving your visits to once per year.


It boils down to so much more than just “tolerating” someone. You “tolerate” your cousin who makes apple pies every holiday that don’t taste all that great because she means well. You learn to “tolerate” your friend’s husband who always insists that your kids “pull his finger” at every single party, because he’s just trying to be funny and it doesn’t hurt anyone.

However, you don’t have to learn to tolerate negative people who affect your life in numerous ways, some of them in truly terrible ways. The people you spend your valuable time on matter! You should surround yourself with people who make you feel good, those who lift you higher, and those who see the wonderful you… even when you don’t feel so wonderful.

We have narrowed down the list of negative people to 10 of the worst culprits that you should kick out of your life if at all possible. Recognize any of these? Bet you know at least a few all too well!


1. The Bad Influence

This is the person that brings out the worst in you. You know, you decide to go shopping at one of the outlet malls so you can buy birthday or Christmas presents. You take along the Bad Influence, who not only convinces you that you should NOT spend that much money on your cheap-skate husband, but that you should buy your mother in law the ugliest purse EVER because she’s such a witch, and let’s not forget that you have worked so hard this past year that you deserve a very expensive bag that you really can’t afford but you buy to impress the Bad Influence. Of course, most Bad Influence friends cause much more damage than this, but you will recognize this person immediately. If you are doing things you ONLY do when they are around, you should ditch this person like the bad habit that they are.
