Cutting Ties- Purging Toxic People From Your Life For Good – Royals Lesson!

Ciao Royals! Today’s post is one that I feel I need to post, because it’s quite important.
So recently I had a negative experience with a toxic person. I will not be naming this person, please, do not name them in the comments or anything related.

This experience left me thinking, “Wow, how many people have trouble purging a toxic person from their life? How many people have dealt with toxic friendships like this?” So I decided to make this post after much deliberation. I realized the value of posting my story and sharing my experience, as well as helping others by sharing tips on how to purge someone toxic from your life, was worth posting this.

The last time we talked about Toxic friendships and people, we did go over how to identify toxic behaviors. 
There are a few more that I’d like to discuss here:

-Playing the victim card when they are the ones in the wrong. A favorite game of toxic individuals is to pretend like they are the victim in a situation that they caused. They poke and prod others, begging for a reaction, even negative. They start fights and when someone fights back, they claim “Oh, I’m being bullied/attacked!”. They do this to gain leverage over people by making others look crazy.

-Using mental illness as an excuse for abusive behavior. When I say this, I mean when someone does something abusive to another person, then claims it’s because of their mental illness. Mental illness is NOT an excuse to abuse, belittle, harass, or assault another person.

So now that you know some more signs of a toxic individual, we need to talk about how do you fully purge a toxic individual from your life, and what do you do to stop someone from practicing these toxic behaviors?


-Unfollow and BLOCK them from all social media. 

-Cut ALL online ties to this person. 

-BLOCK every access they might have to message you. 
-If they do message you- DON’T RESPOND, just BLOCK.

-DO NOT MESSAGE THEM. They will manipulate and harass and attack you.

-Block their number if they try to call/text you.

-Don’t give into their mind games. They WILL try to convince you that it’s all your fault, or that they are blameless. Don’t believe them.


Do not enable. If you see someone playing victim and you know they are in the wrong, do not play into their complex. Do not give them your pity and your “oh you poor thing”, just stay silent or even call them out. The whole reason that some people can become so toxic is because of those around them who enable their behavior. Stand up for the real victim of this behavior.

Unfortunately, toxic people affect all of us at some point or another. And sometimes the right thing to do is just to purge them from your life so you can be free.
