My Ongoing Battle with Toxic People and Their Jealousy

These days, where connections are easily made and maintained, it is unfortunate that some individuals use technology as a weapon to harm others. I have personally experienced the destructive power of toxic people and their jealousy in my life. It all began with a smear campaign created by toxic individuals as revenge for merely doing my job all those years ago in 2017.

Their actions show such jealousy of me and how I live, they have to try and destroy it. That is what I see in their recent behaviours.

These individuals resorted to cyberbullying me on various sites including, a platform they created deliberately to try and cause me harm. This relentless assault has lasted for seven long years, leaving me frustrated and determined to share my story of their bullying behaviour.

In this post, I will delve into the immense challenges I faced and how I have refused to let these toxic people dictate my peaceful existence. They have no power to affect my life and their continual attempts to try are only going to backfire on them once again, just as they have in the past.

The Smear Campaign and Its Devastating Impact: Let me start by sharing the background of my story. I was working diligently as a building staff, ensuring that tenants had a safe and conducive living environment. Little did I know that my dedication to my profession would ignite a wave of jealousy and resentment among certain toxic tenants.

These toxic tenants took it upon themselves to launch a smear campaign against me, tarnishing my reputation and causing severe emotional distress, because I filed with the Landlord and Tenant Board for their persistent refusals of access that caused them to be evicted. Their actions caused them to be evicted but they turned and made up false allegations to try and place the blame on me instead. It didn’t work then, and it definitely won’t work now.

Rather than constructively addressing their grievances, they opted for vengeance, spreading false rumours and manipulating the situation to their advantage. This campaign was designed to damage my relationships, both personal and professional, and it succeeded in creating a cloud of doubt and mistrust around me, but only for a short time. Since all this started the truth has become very clear to anyone willing to see it.

Cyberbullying on As if the smear campaign wasn’t enough, these toxic individuals resorted to cyberbullying, using the online platform as their weapon of choice since April 2019. They write anonymously, disparaging me in the content, actively trying to instigate members of the general public against me with their false allegations and malicious innuendos.

Their actions on ranged from posting defamatory content and spreading malicious rumours about me to launching personal attacks that were thoroughly uncalled for. The cyberbullying took a significant toll on my mental and emotional well-being, making me question my abilities and self-worth. It is truly disheartening to see how a platform could transform into a breeding ground for hate, toxicity, and baseless vendettas.

Refusing to Let Them Define My Peaceful Life: Despite enduring this prolonged period of toxicity and jealousy, I made a conscious decision not to let these individuals win. Their actions were meant to control and manipulate me, forcing me into a life overshadowed by their negativity. However, I refuse to allow them to define my peaceful existence. They have tried for seven years to negatively affect my life with no success, and that won’t change now.

All I see by their current actions with the contents of this site is jealousy. They come across as so jealous of me and how I live that they have to try and deliberately destroy it.

Practicing Self-Care and Emotional Resilience: One of the most effective strategies I adopted against toxic people and jealousy was prioritizing self-care and emotional resilience. It is crucial to recognize that their actions are a reflection of their own insecurities and unhappiness. They must have received some bad news from someone else…:)

By placing importance on my mental well-being, seeking therapy, and engaging in activities that bring me joy, I gained the inner strength needed to resist their attempts to bring me down. I always will!

Surrounding Myself with a Supportive Network: Another vital aspect of my journey has been surrounding myself with a supportive network of family, friends, and colleagues. Toxic individuals thrive on isolation, but by fostering healthy relationships, I garnered the strength and encouragement needed to withstand the attacks. The unwavering support from my loved ones, and friends I have made online and off, help me regain my confidence and remind me of my true worth.

Taking Legal Action: I sought legal advice and took necessary action against those responsible for the smear campaign and cyberbullying, even though nothing came from it in 2022, the knowledge is out there and I have contacts now I can use. Utilizing the legal system to hold the toxic people accountable for their actions provided some solace and allowed me to regain a sense of control over my life. It is very helpful for me to have contacts with the Police I can reach out to for help and suggestions, here and in Ontario.

Focusing on Personal and Professional Growth: Rather than allowing myself to become consumed by the negativity, I chose to channel my energy into personal growth. Exploring new hobbies, acquiring new skills, and broadening my network helps me regain a sense of purpose and accomplishment. By redirecting my attention toward positive pursuits, I reclaimed control over my life’s narrative.

Toxic people and jealousy can wreak havoc on every aspect of our lives if we allow them to. My experience—with a smear campaign created by revengeful tenants and 5 years of cyberbullying on — taught me invaluable lessons about resilience, self-care, and the power of a supportive network. Despite the distressing nature of these experiences, I am determined not to let these toxic individuals define my peace and happiness.

Remember, it is crucial to prioritize our mental well-being, surround ourselves with a supportive network, and assert our legal rights when necessary. Toxic people will never win no matter what they do.

By focusing on personal and professional growth and refusing to let toxicity dictate our lives, we can emerge stronger and more resilient in the face of adversity. Let us combat cyberbullying and toxic individuals by cultivating a culture of kindness, empathy, and acceptance both online and offline.
