the most toxic family on TLC! (+ a much needed mental health chat)



Inspired by hot trash TLC shows, like 90 Day Finance, today we’re taking at look at one of the original toxic families/reality show. I tried to make this video fun to watch, with the edits n’ such, as my original intentions were to make a funny video, but I realized that what I was watching should be called out. I did edit out a lot of Jon and Kate’s fighting, because it’s just annoying at some point. But looking back on their actions, Kate was (verbally/emotionally) abusive to Jon, and their kids didn’t need to be around that. And, seeing how no one batted an eye at this TV show now or when it was running tells me that this type of situation is seen as normal. It absolutely shouldn’t be. I was around a family like this, and the toxic behaviors were and still are considered normal. Yet, somehow I show signs of trauma, and Jon & Kates kids do to. I feel like a lot of individuals grew up or are in situations like mine/Jon & Kates. I just wish we can learn from others/from our parents mistakes, and grow, heal and give our future generation a healthier world. Anyways, I hope you enjoyed and got something out of it. Hope it wasn’t too depressing… This is just something I feel like is really important. THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR WATCHING! 💗💗💗💗💗💗

Here are those links I promised. Again, don’t force yourselves to read any if you can’t, don’t want to. I don’t want to trigger anyone. Heal and grow on your own time. There is no rush. I’m sorry if none of this links help you, I had a hard time finding some that weren’t American. But I hope I inspired you to at least thinking about healing.
