How to Deal With the Toxicity Created by Avoiding Toxic Behaviors or Traits
What do you do when the toxic characteristics that you are attempting to avoid from childhood show up all over in your adult life? It’s so frustrating to have worked so hard to do better as you are growing up only to realize that those traits have materialized in ways you did even realize until it was too late. I see posts on Twitter often that say, “my toxic trait is…”, and I think about this. Through therapy, I have traced many of these toxic traits from childhood. The funny thing is most times they looked different, but at the root are the same in principle. Whether you are dealing with perfectionism, procrastination, or overall performance paralysis they all come from some deep rooted fear or issues that haven’t been resolved or maybe even unearthed yet. It takes some deep work to expose the origin of these toxic traits so that you can begin to process through and unravel them.
