Toxicity is an element that deprives us from developing correctly. Psychological toxicity is the ongoing occurrence of patterns that negatively effect our ability to navigate our natural environment effectively.
When we are young we have to figure things out and navigate our realities very quickly. During periods of high stimulation we depend on our emotional systems to determine threats or unbalance in our environments. We are wired to trust our parents and depend on them to protect us. If they aren’t placing adequate protections in place for us then we assume that it must be our fault.
