Toxic people defy logic. Some are blissfully unaware of the negative impact that they have on those around them, and others seem to derive satisfaction from creating chaos and pushing other people’s buttons. Either way, they create unnecessary complexity, strife, and worst of all stress.
Whether it is negativity, cruelty, the victim syndrome or just plain craziness, toxic people drive your brain into a stressed-out state that you should avoid at all costs. Stress can have a lasting, negative impact on the brain. A few days of stress compromises the effectiveness and weeks of stress cause reversible damage.
