I’m all for having a positive attitude.
In fact, it infuriates me when people use the difficulties and challenges a a reason and excuse to not move forward.
BUT…Toxic Positivity is a real thing.
It happens when we deny the bad, the negativity and instead subscribe to blind optimising and positivity.
In doing that, we effectively suppress the negative emotions…and they just build up…and up…until…
they become toxic.
So please, absolutely do maintain a positive attitude.
But in doing that, don’y deny the negative.
Accept that it’s all just part of the game.
Embrace it. Learn from it. Then, move forward.
