Jenna writes about the toxicity of negative speech. She says:

We know that we should avoid drugs, cigarettes, alcohol, excessive sugar, etc. We have a Poison Control Center to call if we ingest certain chemicals. But, who do we call when what we are ‘ingesting’ isn’t a material? What about when it is negative talk from others or —even worse — from ourselves. It’s a phenomenon I’ve started calling ‘talk-sick.’
