Are You tox*c?

Recommended Posts

tox*c (in this context) means you're trying to start a problem or add to a problem...

So do you ever just, start a post, that is a clear problem? Do you ever reply to something aggressively or pass aggressively?

Have you ever caught yourself being tox*c?

You may find, if you distance yourself from starting or adding to problems, and instead either ignore the subject entirely or try to instead say something positive - you'll find yourself better off in a big way. Maybe.

Do you know anyone who just wants to cause problems all the time? What are they like? Why are they in your life?

I think everyone has their own tox*c traits for sure. I tend to react instead of slowing down to respond like an adult. My emotions used to control my communication skills a lot! But recognizing those traits is a good start 🙂

Yep, you seem pretty cool overall.

Someone I know was watching a reality show recently... amazing how weird people get.

Just how a lot of humans are.

I'm guilty. I've been tox*c in the past. I've done things that p*iss people off. I've lied and did petty theft. I've betrayed friends when it was convenient for me. I treated my ex wife like sh*it instead of being the bigger person. Yeah, I'm guilty of having been a narcissist. I admit it. I'm not proud of it. I've spent a lot of time meditating and reflecting on how I can do better and what I could have done differently. 

I'm not doing those things now. They got me into a lot of trouble and caused me problems. I'm done with all of that c*hildish garbage.

At least you're trying to be a better person now.

When it comes to lying, I’m pretty sure we’ve all lied before. If someone has never even told at least one white lie their life, well I’m impressed..

Just requires one word: Yes. 

In some form, we can all be tox*c. 
It really all depends on if you can reflect on this and recognize it and make efforts to change. 

 

Too many times, while I was using, 5 or so years back, I couldn’t have been more tox*c to be around. It makes me cringe to look back. But I have to, because it prevents me from ever going back there.

The psychologist Carl Jung put a lot of importance on realizing and integrating the shadow. People who claim they're never tox*c probably lack self-awareness.
