avoid toxic positivity


While it’s not a clinical term, toxic positivity refers to taking positive thinking to the extreme by denying or repressing negative feelings such as sadness, loneliness, disappoint­ment or frustratio­n. Positive thinking has many health benefits, but compulsive­ly searching for the ups can be unhealthy. Instead, learn to accept your various feelings and never shame others for theirs.
