HTHT Ep 3: The Dangers of Toxic Positivity
Join me and my good friend Zenas as we take you to the "dark side of positivity" and reveal to you the dangers of toxic positivity.
There seems to be an unspoken rule to stay positive all the time especially on social media.
Only post happy photos, they say.
Only focus on happy thoughts, they say.
Only share happy vibes, they say.
But as a result of such toxic positivity, we end up burying our negative emotions (like anger, fear, sadness etc) that later return to haunt us... like the evil clown in Stephen King's IT.
Anger for me.
Loneliness for Zenas.
