    I came to this realization years ago and decided to simplify my life and have never regretted it. I don't do drama and weeded those who were into it out of my life. I am into healthy relationships with other healthy adults. There are times when I have to deal with emotional vampires but they will never anything more than passing through.

    to bad they don't know how to turn there lives around and be happy. some of them have nothing to be negative about but yet there they are 24 7 so tireing. and snnoying . I prefer real vampires to them i stay away and watch repeats of moonlight with that hansome alex o loughlin. good topic to bring up . these paople make it harder for you to lose weight even. to much stress emoticon

    Some personality types just don't do well together... they get on each other's nerves.

As for emotional vampires.. chronically negative, needy people... that's who they are, not you.

IMO recognizing and maintaining your separateness while being compassionate, is the key to dealing with these types... its that simple.

    I know exactly what you mean about these kinds of relationships. I call them toxic people as they are poisonous and suck the life out of you.
