In recent years, many books and articles have pointed out the toxic behaviors that we can encounter in our lives. Whether it is within the couple, the family, in the circle of friends or even at work, it is true that we have all been confronted with a toxic person. But sometimes our own behavior can be toxic to those around us without us even realizing it. Like the movements that have highlighted such behavior, it is difficult to know if one is indeed one of these harmful people. Here are 5 telltale signs of this toxicity.

Lack of self-confidence, self-criticism

Not recognizing yourself at your good value, being ashamed of yourself or constantly denigrating yourself can be toxic for others and for yourself. This permanent criticism of oneself also leads to criticism of others.
