Toxic people who: intimidate is really their problem, not yours unless you claim it as such. Do you need to be around them? If not, move on. If so, minimize your contact and do other things to neutralize their impact by choosing life-giving things such as good reading, nature, friends, etc. Consider seeing a therapist. Peace and good health.
