Zodiac Signs With Emotionally Abusive Personality Traits

There is nothing that's worse than dealing with a toxic person. It's those 'Debby Downers,' difficult people that are generally a pain in the you-know-where. 

They always find a way to be in your life and try to control you.

Dealing with people who drain you emotionally to the point of abuse is difficult. Sometimes emotionally abusive people thrive in the havoc they wreak in your life. They enjoy gossiping about you and are an absolute pleasure when you're in pain. They want to be able to control how you feel and love it when you react to them.

Other times people have no idea about the negative impact that they have on you. You love your bestie to death, but it's emotionally draining to always listen to them complain about the same things for weeks or months. These kinds of people come in more shapes and sizes than you think. 

Let's say you just started a new job and a bubbly chatty woman will include you in all the water cooler talk. She'll start telling you who to stay away from and negative information. If you tell her anything, I'd bet she'll run back to tell other people what you had to say. 

Emotional vampires stop you from growing as a person and pull you down with their insecurities and constant negativity.

An emotional vampire can be your siblings who never take responsibility for their situations. It can be a best friend who you try to help after a breakup, but they will keep telling you how everything was everyone else's fault. Your boss can thrive in creating drama in your work-life manipulating people.

When you're around them, your feelings are out of whack, and concentrating on anything else is impossible because of the toxic environment they create.
