In today's video I discuss this very thing.
The word toxic positivity is an oxymoron. Or as we like to call it at Stop the Mind Screw a "toxi-moron!"
As a Positive Mindset Coach, it appears that I may teach rainbows and butterflies, but I beg to differ.
I have news for those who think that. I get mad! I get really angry! 🥵
BUT I do not get reactive nor is that what I teach.
I go within, feel the emotion, talk to my Inner Being and find a way to be proactive instead of reactive.
Proactivity can look like drawing a boundary with someone who has treated you ugly.
Or by being kind to yourself and taking a break from the situation.
So, positivity is not toxic. It can be forced, but that is stupidity and not positive at all!!
It is my hope that I change the mind of kids nowadays who call positivity toxic. Heck, I think there is a therapist who has a book titled Toxic Positivity. 🙄
Is she correct? Yes and no! The positivity she is talking about is FORCED. That is not positivity at all.
So please change the name. Or as the kids nowadays say "cancel" it! lol 🤣
Sorry, I had to go there!
You see positivity saved my life. And it can save yours too.
The positivity I teach is where your power lies, why give it away?
