Secrets of Success

Toxic People



I Confess…when I get a toxic person on the phone, and they get into their negative dialogue…I take the phone away from my ear so that I can’t hear what they are saying but I can hear just enough to tell when they stop talking. And I never tell them.
I’m trying to master the art of zoning them out when I’m face to face.... I’m not there yet... But I hear practice makes perfect.
My bad...I know…but I’m sooo much happier emoticon
