Re: Toxicity.

There are those who are on the same career path, at work, who will attempt to roll logs into your path by poisoning others to make themselves look better suited.

In politics too!

What they fail to see is that the watchers watch & the culprits are outed pronto!

But, maybe, one has to stand on a few heads to progress?

Re: Toxicity.

I don't think i would describe anybody as toxic because, if I don't like them initially, I try to understand why they think the way they do. Your opinion can sometimes be changed by listening to what they say, but that can only work if it is a two way conversation!

Sadly name calling & criticism helps nobody, so if a person can do nothing else, I tend to ignore them!

We are all different, but if we don't question those who have differing opinions to ourselves, how can we hope to see things from their point of view?

Re: Toxicity.

Yes Pauline I've had people in my life I can say were toxic for me . In that I mean abuse towards me which I realised was causing me to wake up and move on , which I did . A good lesson to learn.

Now im older and wiser I keep well away from people who's energy doesn't gell with me.

Books and covers springs to mind....

That has happened to me a few times too.

Re: Toxicity.

Can't think of any. Probably because other than my immediate family I honestly don't give a stuff what people think and if anyone tried to influence me in any direction that I don't want to go then they've got no chance.

If anything from time to time I've been toxic in other peoples lives but that's their problem.
