I was going to try to write something interesting and insightful today but, alas, before I could even attempt to relax my monkey mind long enough to be appropriately reflective, most of the day was gone...
Thankfully, I came across this interesting and insightful article by Brett Blumenthal on 8 Toxic Personalities to Avoid, and I'll let it do my blogging job for me.
Love the Internet!
Incidentally, not to name names, of course, but I think we've all met a number of real-life people at one point in time or another who fit these categories. Sometimes I suspect we get so used to someone behaving in a toxic manner that we forget that it's a dysfunction...we start to see it as a mere character trait. And speaking of which, for those of us who are writers, you'll probably recognize some of your characters on this list, too. That was the first thing that struck me, actually, as I was reading the article. I wanted to wave and greet them by name. "Hey, David, look at you showin' up here. You've been busy, man."
Anyway, hope you all have a wonderful end to the month of May. And, in case you didn't catch this earlier, I'm drawing three names from all the May commenters and newsletter subscribers for summery According to Jane t-shirts this weekend. Hallelujah for warm weather!
