You need to learn how to side-step toxic, passive-aggressive behavior, and save your sanity, right? Today’s episode gives you 7 ways to do just that.

Now, how to protect yourself from the toxicity of passive-aggressive behavior coming from someone else!

Until you do! That’s why I’ve written so much about it, and devoted several episodes to it. Once you know clearly what it is, you will feel empowered in the face of it. Maybe not immediately, but that will be the result if you step up and use these seven tips all the time. Passive-aggressive people can make chaos out of thin air. Actually, they are secretly delighted to do so. It gives them power over others. They haven’t learned to approach situations, feelings, relationship, or communication directly, so they do it indirectly. Hence, the chaos!
