It’s Okay to Not Be Okay

Summary.   

Toxic positivity is the assumption that despite a person’s emotional pain and turmoil, they should only have a positive mindset.

  • When we pretend that emotional pain doesn’t exist, we send a message to our brain that whatever the emotion is, it is in some way bad or dangerous. If our brain believes we are in a dangerous situation, our body will respond as such.
  • By overdoing positive affirmations, we may be invalidating our or others’ feelings and harming them when they are already in a vulnerable state.
  • The best way to deal with negative emotions is to let yourself feel the emotions you’re feeling and let them pass, not push them under the rug.close
