3 Toxic Uses At Home

3 toxic uses in the home

A healthy home is perhaps one of the most important factors influencing our mental strength. The opposite also happens: a sick home makes us much more vulnerable and prone to diseases of both mind and body. But there are also a variety of behaviors that can be like poison in the home.

The word home here does not refer only to the typical family that includes mother, father, couple of children, and dog. Home refers to a place we live in here that we can share with siblings, friends, parents, or even a pet and occasional guests.

The quality of interpersonal relationships in this home is the key to mental health. Where there is cohabitation, there are also contradictions. But especially at home, we should not allow any kind of behavior that could turn into a psychic poison. We’ll talk in more detail about three such toxic behaviors that should never be let into a home and at least not allowed to stay there.

The cry turns the home into hell

The bad thing about shouting is that it is initially considered unusual, but the tolerance for it gradually increases until it becomes a habit. Even easier if it is confirmed. It happens even unnoticed. Today you cry because you are frustrated when no one understands what you are saying, and tomorrow you cry because you were better understood or because otherwise no one will listen to you (or so you think).

In a shout that seems annoying to others rather than aggressive, a poisonous seed begins to germinate: the seed of violence. Shouting becomes a normal way to communicate in a mentally devastating situation. It is a means of trying to show one’s own strength. It is a way that distorts the true meaning of words.

Talking calmly can also become a habit – an awesome one. Not shouting or letting others shout at you strengthens your cohabitation and helps raise self-esteem, respect, and self-control. “ No shouting here” should be the basic rule in every home.

Lack of borders

Much of healthy cohabitation consists of people being able to respect each other’s condition. Here, “space” doesn’t just mean, for example, everyone’s own room, but it does start with that.

The home must fully respect other people’s property and their own facilities. It is also very important that each person clearly marks these boundaries and ensures that others know them. Some can and even should be negotiated: this is the right time to do it. Everyone should have their own space where they can be alone and trust that no one else is breaking this limit.

In addition to rehabilitating physical places, one must also learn to respect the privacy of others. Even if you live with other people, everyone also has their own life. No one should enter the mental state of other people except with their permission or invitation. That is, objectively speaking, when another person is involved in it in some way. We all have the right to silence, secrets and our own views.

Unequal distribution of responsibilities

All homes have to do chores that are not very pleasant, though necessary: these are homework. The home utilizes numerous mechanisms that are responsible for its operation and maintenance. Electricity, water supply, household appliances, etc .; all of these should work. The physical premises and all their parts must be cleaned and maintained.

Living together is much healthier if the sharing of household chores is agreed upon. Sometimes it is impossible to divide these tasks completely fairly, but it has to be done in some way. And that’s why consensus is needed: to share the chores that need their perpetrators. But more importantly, they will also be made.

It is essential that every member of the home has responsibilities in these respects. It is a condition for maintaining solidarity, cooperation and respect. It makes everyone’s lives easier and gives everyone a sense of meaning. It also reinforces the idea that every collective has tasks that need to be done for ourselves and everyone else.

Sometimes people compare a home to a temple, and for good reason. If we respect it, it will definitely become a source of inspiration that will be reflected in all the other social spaces we are in. If we neglect or damage it, it may only become the first link in a long chain of personal failures.
