For many of us, Christmas is going to be a smaller affair this year. This might come as a relief for many of you … perhaps you now have the excuse to avoid certain toxic people in your circle.

But for others, this might pose a problem … because you are now going to be in closer proximity with someone you’ve done your level best in avoiding.

In this episode, I identify the 12 Toxic Characters and their behaviors that might cause you problems.

Better still I am offering suggestions on how to deal with these people and how to diffuse certain situations.

Toxic individuals can bring out the worst in us – but also they can have an adverse effect on our wellbeing and mental health – and that’s not OK.
