Iron lady of Pakistan Muniba Mazari tells us, toxicity is very contagious, just like positivity.

A dazzling icon of female empowerment, multi-talented Muniba Mazari has an impressive array of admirable traits under her umbrella. Known as the Iron Lady of Pakistan, she is an anchorperson, an artist, a humanitarian, a model, and a singer. She shines with confidence as a motivational speaker.

Revelling in sharing precious nuggets of wisdom, she throws light on realities that engulf us in our day-to-day existence. Muniba’s life lessons are indeed profound because they teach us how to face trials and tribulations with strength and determination.

Fresh into the New year, Muniba had released a video where she addresses the issue of toxicity in human behaviour. She says that there is a reason why we humans are getting bitter instead of better over time. This is because many of us are not able to identify the toxicity in our surroundings.

With great clarity, she sheds light on how we can spot toxicity and points out the personality traits of people with destructive mindsets from whom we need to distance ourselves.

The iron lady of Pakistan reminds us conversation with a toxic person is always exhausting

We are bound to feel happy and relaxed whenever we are in the company of someone pleasant. Our worries seem to lighten. But if talking to a person makes us tired and stressed out enough to leave the place, that is a sure sign that the person is toxic.

Toxic people are energy vampires, and they drain out the positive energy in us.

  • Ungratefulness is the trademark of toxicity

A person who is toxic will always complain about what he or she does not have. It is very important to stay away from such people who do not count their blessings in life. Muniba says that ungratefulness and negativity are as contagious as gratitude and positivity. So we need to keep ourselves safe from such thankless people.

  • Toxic people are always on the lookout for credibility

Not having any credibility of their own, toxic individuals seek refuge in the shadow of those who are successful and truthful. They are pretentious, envious individuals who are not happy with the success of others. It is important to know that these people are not our genuine well-wishers.

We need to realize that they are actually using us as tools to camouflage their insecurities, weaknesses, and failures.

  • Be on guard when anyone is disrespecting you!

A relationship can be healthy only when there is mutual respect between human beings. A toxic person is extremely disrespectful, so anyone who insults someone in any way is, without an iota of doubt, very toxic

  • Curiosity to know about others should not be confused with empathy

Muniba issues a warning. She intelligently explains that toxic people can never be empaths. They seek to know everything about others, not out of love, but only to gather information that could perhaps be used as a weapon later.

  • People who do not believe in self-analysis and self-growth cannot be good human beings

We need to always improve ourselves and strive to be a better version of who we are. Anyone who does not endorse this philosophy of life cannot be a good influence. Such people are not only hazardous to themselves; they pose a danger to others as well.

They never facilitate a process through which they and the people around them can correct mistakes and grow together as a healthy group.

Practice empathy!

Muniba emphasizes practising empathy in the right way, saying that it needs to be shown within boundaries. If one is empathetic at the expense of their own well-being and self-respect, it can only be self-destructive.

Toxic people are everywhere. It is on us to identify them and block them in order to protect our sanity and well-being and to experience the flow of positive energy into our lives.
