One may ask, what does toxic #emotion look like? Firstly, allow me to define it: “It’s a negative term that will cut completely through the body, mentally and physically . . . totally swallowing one up.” It eats and eats away till the human becomes stressed and emotionally drained of energy; breaking down one’s self-motivation. In a nutshell, it’s a poisonous feeling that erupts within a human body.
Here are just a few of those #toxins: depression, hatred, rage, stress, anger, grief, heartache, pain, worry, anxiety, negativity, denial, resentment, and greed. Really, there are way too many of them; so many that one can continue to add to this list.
We all have these built-in toxic emotions. It’s just that some of us tend to find ways to suppress them; while others don’t give a hoot about releasing it. These emotions become fueled like an atomic bomb. They will ignite with the flip of a switch inside one’s being. And can become a “killer” of a weapon.
Surely, no one is #baggage “free.” Every one of us has some form of baggage, and it’s not short stopping of the emotional baggage. There is no designated place where these toxins may hide or explode. One can find them erupting from . . .
• Ruined relationships (marriages or breakups)
• Wartime relationships
• Workplace relationships
• Painful childhood memory relationships
• Loss of loved ones’ relationships
• Rejection or betrayal relationships
• Traumatic experience relationships (mental, physical, or sexual)
• Hardship relationships
• Failure relationships
• Guilt relationships
Change in our thinking process is essential in controlling these toxins. Feelings of built up toxins can be harmful and take a toll on one’s mind and body. To the degree, it can cause great damage to the rest of one’s organs, and its natural processes.
One may not forget all the unhealthy actions that were endured. But one can learn to forgive. Forgiveness is the prescription that fights or ward off toxic emotions.
