15 Sep Baby Boomers Guide to the Toxic Antidote
The toxic antidote is sought by the unhappy victims of toxic friendships and relationships all over the World. Psychological articles subject the unhappy condition of toxicity in depth and depressing detail, with all kinds of theories researched and commented upon to find a solution to the unhappiness of toxicity; its causes and the reason it flourishes even within a content and happy environment.
Everyone has gloomy friends; the kind of pal who shows up late without an apology and proceeds to complain about their day before they have even said hello; the ghastly kind of person who tells you how bad you look when you have a cold and then assures you that he or she had far worse symptoms when they had the same cold before passing it on to you! These creatures are the wet blankets on the picnic of life; the gloomy cloud of despondency in an otherwise sunny afternoon. Psychological articles come nowhere near to describing the kind of grey mist such purveyors of depression can cast over a happy disposition.
The antidote to such behavior is actually happiness in large quantities and spread about with as much enthusiasm as possible. Psychological articles go down all kinds of avenues to find the answer to dealing with toxic people and their poisonous attitudes. The subject is somewhat over researched and all manner of complicated formulas are suggested for arming yourself against toxic effects. The simple solution, barely touched upon by professionals in psychological articles, is sunny cheer distributed in the face of negativity and misery.
Those who are affected by the symptoms of toxic negativity described in psychological articles tend to have a healthy resolve which equips them to enjoy pessimism and gloom. They are unhappy people anyway and have a talent for looking on the dark side of a situation and not allowing cheer or laughter to penetrate their cosy, critical outlook. They just don’t want to be drawn into a happier place and will not thank you for trying! Psychological articles which argue whether an antidote for toxicity exists agree that sufferers are happy victims of depression.
So why do we persist in seeking an antidote to toxic gloom and sadness? All the psychological articles that dedicate thousands of words to the pursuit of the antidote to eternal gloom never expound on the advantages of tolerance and patience when dealing with sufferers of the symptoms of toxicity.
Toxic people gravitate to positive attitudes like flies to honey, possibly because this exposure to optimism feeds their critical reserve, giving them one more thing to grumble about. Such people thrive on conflict and objection, so presenting them with a refusal to argue or be drawn into a combative situation dilutes the effect they have on more sociable members of the community.
