Being positive is the best way to take care of both your physical and mental health.
It helps you become the best version of yourself and also encourages and empowers you to have a positive outlook on life, provided you’re acknowledging the things that have a negative on your life.
🙅Therefore, when it comes to ‘toxic positivity’, it is not exactly the same as being positive. While being healthily positive stresses on the acceptance of one’s emotional pain as well as difficulty in life, ‘toxic positivity’ is like a pretense where one feels the need to be happy all the time, even though they’re not.
🙅Problems are a part of our lives and dealing with it gives us a sense of satisfaction and achievement.
🙅However, indulging in toxic positivity will only assist you towards happiness that you probably didn’t earn. Ignoring your emotional needs and disregarding your mental health by only adopting a positive vibe can become tormenting in the long run.
🙅The best way to prevent it is acknowledging your problems and discussing the root of it all.
