Toxic people speak badly about others, are negative, lack compassion, take up way too much of your time, constantly have drama going on, lie to you, criticize you, talk more than they listen, play the victim, lose their temper, have to be right, treat others poorly, are self-obsessed, try to control you, have addiction issues. (Sue Fitzmaurice)

A little inspiration goes a long way (22 Photos)

And I've pretty much found this to be true. I like listening to people talk. I like seeing the light in someone's eyes when they really care about something. I like talking too, don't get me wrong, but nothing beats watching the eyes of people when they speak. In that silence, if you really listen instead of planning what to say next (pet peeve), you can hear so very much more than what they say. ~ Lauren M. I couldn't have said it better myself
