Reality: Toxic people have the habit of creating their own reality which may be different from the truth. We often get driven to their version of reality where we lose our individuality. We should be careful to not be drawn towards their truth.

Pay attention: The toxic traits of people show up in the way they make us feel. Sometimes what they say and what they do are completely opposite and we are not able to make difference. But, if we pay attention to how they make us feel, we will know how to break free from them.

Speak up: Sometimes, all it takes to break free from toxicity is the voice and the courage to stand up against it. We should learn to speak up and call out toxic people.

Self-love: Practising self-love can help us to put ourselves first and not get drawn to other people’s behaviors and toxicity.

Say no: No is a very powerful word and it can save us from a lot of toxicity.
