In our own involvement in an emotionally toxic community, there are various signs and symptoms that may help us to identify it. We may feel as if there is a vast emptiness in our center self, a hunger, a need, a longing which never feels quite filled up in spite of personal prayer and loving validation from others in our present relationships. if we feel this way, it is possible that we are feeling the unfilled hunger and need of many generations, still carried around within us.
