^yeah, this is pretty true in my experience. Itís like calling your ex crazy even if they werenít just so you can seem like the good guy for breaking up with them

It depends on the people using the term.
The situations I've been in that I would label toxic were either manipulative or criticizing my behavior in a hypocritical or unhealthy way. 
You can still have a bad dynamic but it not be toxic.

It hurts when it does get to that point, and I've be convinced to get out of those situations because a part of me still cared about them, and thought it was a misunderstanding. Because of that made me question my own actions and go in bad mental places.

I'm very inclined to agree with this. I'm really good friends with one of my ex's, but when we first broke up, my friends were all like "oh, I'm glad you're out of that toxic relationship". It wasn't toxic. It wasn't healthy, hence the breakup, but it certainly wasn't toxic. We're just better as friends, and that's all there was to it. I think like a lot of things in this generation, people jump to the extreme, and that's not necessarily our fault; everything is kind of an extreme now with the way stuff is very expensive... we've as a society come to this all-or-nothing mentality and that in itself is something I think is the real toxin.

It kind of is though where is the lie?

Unpopular Opinion: There is only one [one] 1 strong female protagonist. THere is only uno [not dos, not tres] that is genuinely flawless and heroic, who is a worthy role model to women of all ages and capable of standing tall no matter what role you put her in. Only one, in the entirety of cinema, that I could call Queen.
