Toxic positivity

I’m a pretty positive person. Without a positive and optimistic outlook on life I would never have dived into all those adventures which I’ve had in my life. I know from experience that everything passes and that most challenges, in retrospect, turned out to be blessings in disguise. They always bring me a little further along the path that I’m supposed to walk. I trust that.

That doesn’t mean that life can’t be just downright sucky every now and then. That sometimes you can’t yet see the silver lining when you’re in the midst of shit going down.  And that it can help to talk about your negative emotions when that happens. Negative emotions can be useful too.
