Toxic people always want attention

Well-adjusted people don’t require constant support. Toxic people tend to feed off the attention of other people- whether it’s positive or negative. They love constant contact.

Toxic people are disruptive

There are all sorts of toxic people: people who manipulate, are angry, or engage in other dysfunctional behaviors would be considered toxic. No matter what makes them uniquely toxic, one thing’s for certain- it’s disruptive.
