Her childhood or her relationships with her parents was restrictive, unloving, or unhappy in ways that may prevent Toni from allowing other people to get close to her in later life. Toni Braxton felt deprived in some manner, whether or not she actually was deprived in some way. Emotional separations or repression of her needs and feelings may typify her early life, at least as Braxton remembers it.

Therefore, developing self-reliance, and the courage to look inwardly for answers and forge her own path through life is a key factor in her self-development.
Toni Braxton is often tempted to be less than completely straightforward about her intentions or desires, and she can become enmeshed in a quagmire of "little white lies".
