Facing ’emotional toxicity’?

Sometimes, some people’s behavior towards you is simply toxic.   


And they behave in that manner not because you did something to deserve such treatment or because they are going through a bad phase or because they are transferring to you the trauma that someone else has caused them or because they themselves are suffering. They behave that way because… that’s the way they are.

Call it inherited genes, early upbringing or for that matter plain ‘negative experiences’, yet let’s face it – ‘they are like this’. Now you can have three ways to deal with it – ‘get away from them as early as possible’ or ‘maintain a firm ‘stay around but don’t cross boundary’ stand or ‘increase will power to such an extent that it ceases to bother you’.


Well! Such people do change eventually. All you’ve to see is whether you have enough reasons to wait and bear till then.
