As a societal buzzword these days, many call others toxic simply because they have differing viewpoints. One must first understand its true meaning in order to identify it in others (and yourself). According to Merriam-Webster Dictionary,
the definition explains it as “extremely harsh, malicious, or harmful”. From a therapeutic perspective, toxic individuals (often wounded themselves) design relationships with others out of their desire for personal gain of power or control.
