Psychiatrist Marián Rojas Estapé is known for her advice to increase people’s mental well-being. On this occasion she has shared what to do in the event that there is a toxic person in someone’s environment.

The first advice Estapé gives is “know who they are, give them a name.” Secondly, what the psychiatrist comments is that you have to hide. “Don’t tell your biggest secret to that person who is then capable of hurting you.”

The psychiatrist’s third recommendation is to stay away from that person. “If you can get away, I recommend it, because it hurts you and prevents you from being happy,” she says.

The fourth piece of advice he gives is that you have to be careful if you can’t stay away from toxic people, since “they consider themselves entitled to their opinion and consider themselves emotional vampires, who suck up all the emotion in an instant.”

At the end of the video, which is divided into two parts, the psychiatrist says that we must “forgive.” “A resentful heart cannot be happy, forgiving is going to the past and returning safely.”
