Have you heard of toxic positivity? Toxic positivity is the belief that people should maintain a positive mindset no matter how dire or difficult a situation is. It’s a “good vibes only” approach to life. I believe in keeping a positive attitude when the situation calls for it, but people need to experience pain and work through it, or else bad habits could develop. Also, toxic positivity can be a form of gaslighting. Gaslighting is a manipulation tactic (intentional or otherwise) used to make someone question their reality and deny their thoughts, feelings, and experiences.
Have you ever experienced toxic positivity? How did you approach the person who said it to you? How do you feel about expressing emotions or dealing with negative or positive feelings? What are some things you do to work through a difficult situation?
