Toxic positivity is EVERYWHERE. Especially during challenging times, we are told "positive vibes only", "don't worry, it might never happen" and other such clichés!
- When we mask or hide our true feelings and emotions and instead present a veneer of toxic positivity to the world, and…
- When we ignore and repress the feelings and emotions of others, and force our toxic positivity onto them (e.g. “Oh well, it could be worse!”).
I explore both these elements and much more in my video, going into detail on why we adopt an attitude of toxic positivity and most importantly, how to begin making a truly positive difference!
