Ever heard of toxic positivity?
People tell you;
“Just think positive”, “Everything will be fine”, “You have to love yourself in order to find true love”.
I’m calling bullsh*t!
It is an extremely harmful practice. Toxic positivity causes people to doubt themselves. It causes people anxiety. Some to lay awake at night wondering why just “thinking positive” isn’t working or helping in their lives.
To say to someone “You must love yourself in order to find someone who loves you”, how cruel is that?
Many people do not “love themselves” for a multitude of reasons. Including mental health, body image, previous abusive and/or toxic relationships.
Actually being with someone who you love and they love you can help you to love yourself.
There is plenty of evidence from psychological studies all around the world proving this to be a fact.
In todays culture we need to stop this pandemic of “toxic positivity” that is leading people to develop mental health problems, body image issues and much, much more.
If anyone is interested I post further on this topic discussing particular up to date Psychology articles regarding toxic positivity and its damaging effects on people.
Take care of yourself, be true to yourself and most of all, keep being you!
