The way society has normalized certain toxic behaviors is a subject of a popular thread today. Some behaviors are probably more often annoying and sometimes life threatening. Yet, has been common since a very long time.

Here are the top ten toxic behavior normalized by the society according to us:


1. People willing to sacrifice their privacy for popularity

Toxic Behavior

Sacrificing one’s private life for popularity has been normal these days. People tend to share each and every details of their personal life in social media which often seems irrelevant. These days every two out of five people claims themselves to be a Youtubers or a TikTok users, which is good.

But sharing your personal space to the world in the name of popularity may seem a little inappropriate and childish. So, leave this toxic behavior which has been normal in the society just to gain much popularity among your circle.


2. Being savage or pretty for likes and comment

Toxic Behavior Normalized by the Society

One of the toxic behavior normalized by the society is that these days’ people are willing to give up everything to gain popularity. Not only has it applied for the youths, but even for the children and the old ones.

Our lives are revolving around social media. So, there is no doubt that getting likes and comments social media has been normalized by the society. But in order to get attention, people tend to become so fake and put on a mask in their faces just to please the society.

No doubt, it’s your own choice, but do not hide yourself just to get some likes and comments in order to get popular among your circle.


3. Meaningless pranks

Toxic Behavior

With the society being modernized, making meaningless pranks just for the sake of being popular has become normalized by the society. The so called pranksters who try to make videos for amusements often cause major problem to the people and the society.

Imagine, you being pressurized by work and family matters, and at that time someone drops a bucket of water on you on the name of prank. How would you feel? Without acknowledging that their pranks may threaten others or sometimes harm them mentally, pranksters these days set their pranks just for popularity or fun which is quite toxic behavior.


4. Raising a child as prince or princess

Toxic Behavior

There is no doubt that every parents treat their children as a prince or princess. Spoon feeding children while they play with their phone is so wrong yet has been normal in the society.

Parents do not realize that blindfolding their children from problems can lead to more severe problem later. They will not be able to hold hand of their children forever.

Hence, parents should let their children see the world with their own eyes and face any kinds of troubles by themselves. Try to avoid this toxic behavior and show your children the real world as soon as possible.


5. Employees being present 24/7 for their bosses

Toxic Behavior

Overworking may seem good on movies and television series, but in real life, honestly it doesn’t go that well. The reality is you may not have pizzas or beers like in the movie- rather you would get exhausted, tired, and missing out all the fun you could have with your family and loved ones.

The expectation that the employees must be available even outside of the work hours or during paid or unpaid time off is totally wrong in our society. For the bosses, keeping the same kind of mentality, you should avoid this toxic behavior and treat your employees as your colleagues.


6. Pressuring people to drink

Toxic Behavior

With the society being modernized, drinking habits has been normal. Yet, the biggest disadvantage of modern society is that people often pressurize their peers to have the habit similar to their even though they might not like it.

In order to enjoy or show respect to the other person, unknowingly or knowingly they pressurize them. Yet, the other person, even if he/she doesn’t want to have it must take it because of the fear what other might think.

To those, who do these kinds of toxic behavior, think of the person how he/she might have felt when you offered him/her to drink forcefully.


7. Threatening kids

Toxic Behavior

Like said earlier, every parents treat their children as a prince or princess. There is no doubt on that. But with the modernization of the society, parents also tend to threaten their kids with physical violence.

In order to make their life better, it is often found that parents threaten their kids to study hard. This is the result of parents giving mobile phones to their children which diverts their minds from studying.

The parents should stop threatening their kids and rather try other alternative like not letting them use the mobile phones or offering them gifts just to make them happy.


8. Casual waste

Toxic Behavior

The concept of casual waste is extremely high these days in our society. Without realizing that there are millions of people starving from hunger, people throw tons of waste here and there.

Go visit a restaurant, the amount of food that gets wasted on a daily basis will astonish you. There are actually people living in big cities who simply go dumpster diving behind restaurants for food. Yet, throwing foods in haphazard manner has been normal with the modernization of the society.

However, everyone should realize these facts and remember not to through waste in haphazard manner from now on.


9. Categorizing people by their profession

Toxic Behavior

Conceptualizing people on the basis of their job has always been a big issue of our society since very long. No offence, but equating people’s worth with their job is like treating a lawyer as if they deserve more respect than a janitor.

Or assuming that a social worker is not as financially stable compared to an investment banker. People often ask questions like ‘so what do you do for living’ as opposed to ‘what so you do in your spare time”, just to categorize that person.

For those, who categorize people by their profession, please do not try to judge a book by its cover or else you might get judged twice by them.


10. Angry and reckless driving

Toxic Behavior

The faster you drive, the more likely you keep your and others life in a risk. Some people desire to drive faster than the speed because it feels good to them. These days society completely accepts people driving really fast, following too close, moving ever without ever signaling.

This is specially seen among the youths, who try to act smart among their peer groups. This toxic behavior is being generated by the parents themselves who buy expensive cars and bikes to their children. So, for those who behave this way, do not ignore the rules and try to save yourself from sever accidents.
