Toxic people live in so much of delusion that if you know what they are doing or you try to know to save yourself or somebody else from their toxicity, then they make you or try to make you feel like the culprit. It’s like a criminal blaming the police for making an investigation against the crime to know the identity of the criminal. Truly, this kind of psychopathy has no end or cure. It can only be controlled, that too, only if the toxic person(s) wants to improve upon himself, which actually is very rare. If toxic people can improve upon their nature, then it means that they have to know their reality first, about which they are really paranoid because it may lead them to expose their own hidden weaknesses to their conscious mind, which is generally unlikely to happen on its own. They just don’t know that they are wrong about something or they know but do not want to admit it. Again, fear of exposure of their personality’s weaknesses is the reason. Where a normal person tries to find out his/her weaknesses and tries to improve upon them or take help, professional or otherwise, toxic people always hesitate from taking professional psychological help; they always think that their behaviour is casual or normal, which is far from the truth and thus delusional.
Toxic people’s basic strategy applicable to various situations:
Take the garbage- Wrap it up- Place it out of anyone’s reach- Act like it does not exist.
But, it exists ! The garbage is there. Sooner or later, it begins to stink and either the toxic person begins to get irritated because of it or somebody else begins to smell it. That smell is the subliminal cues or red flags. Until it is known to somebody else, the toxic person begins to get irritated of that (his own psyche), and needs somebody to blame for it. That is why it is highly likely that toxic people cannot live alone for a long period of time. They are always needy.
(That begins the new topic of neediness that I do not want to talk about in this post.)
