Toxic positivity is the idea of always trying to maintain a positive attitude, even in difficult or negative situations. This can involve downplaying or dismissing negative emotions or experiences, or pressuring others to always think positively. 

While it's important to have a positive outlook on life and to try to find the good in difficult situations, toxic positivity can be harmful in several ways. 

  1. First, it can invalidate people's feelings and experiences. When someone is struggling with negative emotions or a difficult situation, it's important to allow them to feel and express those emotions. Dismissing or minimizsng their feelings can make them feel unsupported and isolated. 
  2. Second, toxic positivity can create an unhealthy pressure to always be positive, which can be emotionally exhausting and unsustainable. It's okay to have negative emotions, and it's important to allow oneself to feel and process them in a healthy way. 
  3. Finally, toxic positivity can also prevent people from seeking help or support when they need it. If someone is constantly told to "think positive" or to "just be happy," they may feel like they can't ask for help or support when they're struggling. 

In short, while it's important to try to maintain a positive outlook, it's also important to allow ourselves and others to feel and express a full range of emotions and to look for help when needed. 


On the Flip Side: 

What research shows on positive thinking 

There is some research suggesting that positive thinking can have a range of benefits, including  

  1. improved physical health ie better immune function and a lower risk of developing certain health conditions, such as heart disease. 
  2. Improved mental health, ie lower rates of depression and anxiety and are more resilient when facing stress. 
  3. Better decision-making skills and problem solving skills. People who are more positive tend to approach problems with a more open-minded and flexible attitude, which can lead to better solutions.
  4. increased life satisfaction. 

However, it's important also to note that positive thinking on its own is not a cure-all, and it's not always possible or healthy to try to always maintain a positive outlook. It's important to allow yourself to feel and express a full range of emotions, and to get help when needed.
