As you grow older, you gradually find out that not everyone is worth your trust. There are a few untrustworthy people around. These people might have ruined your trust, and it ends up damaging your whole belief system. But this doesn’t mean that you should not give people a chance. It is just important to know how to differentiate between people whom you can trust and people whom you cannot.
Let’s have a look at the signs that someone is an untrustworthy person
1. Gossip Seekers
The most important among all the signs you can’t trust someone are the gossip seekers. These are the ones you should never trust. Today they are gossiping about some other and the next thing you know, they will be gossiping about you to some other person. These kinds of people are not at all worthy of your trust, and they just believe in spreading misinformation. For them, it is all fun and games. So it would be safe for you if you maintain distance from them.
2. Obsessive liars
Well, this is something that is very well known that we must stay away from those people who just can’t stop lying. For them, lying is a habit, and they can literally lie about anything. They are only going to waste your time and energy. So, save yourself and put these untrustworthy people out of your life.
3. Belittles their ex
Talking ill about your ex doesn’t make you sound any good. One should always maintain a distance from these kinds of people who belittle their ex. This is very bad behavior, and you need not spend your time with such kinds of untrustworthy people. It is important to respect your ex too!
4. Too good to be true
No one in this whole world could be 100% nice. We all have our baggage and insecurities and if someone shows you the too good to be true kind of behavior, then alert yourself. It is your job to stay away from these people who are way too nice for you because you know they are just pretending it. They are nothing but dishonest and untrustworthy people.
5. Excessive Flirt
You might have heard these kinds of people saying that ‘healthy flirting is good.’ There is no such thing called ‘healthy flirting.’ People who flirt too much and start flirting with anyone and anywhere are a red flag.
After these flirtatious people, you should maintain your distance from the people who fall in love very easily. Love is not a game, and you can’t fall in love every other day. These kinds of people might not be bad, but they are going to end up hurting you. Because today if they are loving you, tomorrow they might fall in love with some other person. Stay away from such drama and make your life easier.
So, this can’t be said enough that you should not spend even 1% of your time on people who have cheated on you because that is one of the main signs you can’t trust someone. Be it a relationship or business or anything. Cheaters deserve no trust and no second chance. If you give them a chance, then there’s a 90% possibility that they are going to do the same thing again. This way you are not just wasting your time and energy, but you will also end up hurting yourself.
Being too self-obsessed is something that should not be entertained. There are people whose life starts and ends with themselves. They are not compassionate or empathetic about others’ feelings and emotions. Stay away from such kinds of people as they will never pay attention to you. Narcissism is not good, and again, a major red flag, so you need to maintain a distance from narcissistic people.
9. Don’t apologize
Some people have the habit of taking everything on their ego. Such kinds of people are not worth being in your life and not worthy of your trust. They are never going to take any responsibility and will very conveniently shift things onto you. Invest your time and energy in those people who know how to say sorry when they are wrong.
10. Turns the table
No matter what topic you are on, they will always have something better to tell you. Such kinds of people will never help you with anything in your life because their stories are never-ending. Instead, be with people who are good listeners and who help you in solving your issues.
Therefore, cutting off all the negative people in your life with all these signs and live a life without toxicity. Keep your vibes clean and peace at priority. In this way, you can grow in an environment that will not make you mentally ill, or even physically.
