What’s going on here & Why we like it
Psych2go, a youtube channel focused on mental health, shares 7 signs that help us uncover characteristics of toxic parenting. Toxic parents tend to show no remorse in their mistakes towards you and are rude towards your efforts/ vulnerabilities. We like this video because it helps individuals find the issue that may be silently plaguing them at home
We mean they couldn’t even be bothered to treat you with any decency or basic courtesy.

Ajahn Brahm, a famous monk in Australia, shares how we can respond to negative moments and memories in our lives. Often, we get caught up in negative memories, which further thickens our anger. Ajahn Brahm takes a fun spin to approach negative emotions by messing around with them
“Play with these demons, have fun with them.”
