Energy vampires are emotionally immature individuals who have the sense that the whole world revolves around them. They are almost incapable of seeing things from another person’s perspective. They often lack empathy.
Have you ever been around someone that made you feel tired after they left? People that make you feel this way are Energy Vampires. They are unhappy with themselves so they seek out individuals who appear to be happy, content, and strong to smear their bullshit all over. People who exhibit this behavior typically are angry when you do not indulge them and their constant need for attention, reassurance, contact, conversation, CONTROL, etc. They usually come to you with a big smile and a lot flattery. Don’t be fooled. Another name for this type of individual is a narcissist.
I had the “privilege” of working with people with this personality type. Once I stopped indulging in their antics they all, of course, thought that I was unhappy and had a problem. They can never own up to their own shortcomings. I was actually becoming happier than I’d ever been in that office. At work it is not a requirement to listen to your corny ass stories and jokes. Narcissistic people really think they are interesting. Hearing you talk about yourself everyday and what you like, don’t like, hate, love, want to do, want to eat, etc is annoying and exhausting.
How about this? Why don’t you all just SHUT THE FUCK UP! And for the love of GOD, leave people alone who don’t seem interested in talking to you. Maybe, just maybe, YOU are the problem. Hop off my nuts and find a hobby. Talking about yourself is not a fucking hobby. Please see a therapist if someone tells you that you exhibit this behavior. For all of us. Please. When I first encounter folks like this I really do try to be as polite as possible but you should never allow someone else’s happiness take precedence over your own.
