WHAT IS TOXIC POSITIVITY? This video discusses psychological the concept of “toxic positivity” and how it differs from the beneficial practice of optimism. It is the the false belief that no matter how difficult or challenging a situation is in reality, that a falsely positive facade should be shown. This harmful habit causes suffering, the denial of real emotions and experiences, and feelings of invalidation and depression. It can prolong the recovery from trauma and trigger anxiety. This video explains how to recognize it, and why it is important to address all your feelings, even those that are negative. I hope you find it both interesting and helpful!
