Having a positive mindset is one of the greatest strengths one could have, but the truth is, life is not always positive, isn’t it? In life, we go through various ups and downs; sometimes we are filled with emotions such as joy, happiness, and love; other times, we might experience intense negative emotions such as hatred, anger, and grief. Maintaining a positive attitude in all situations does not imply that you ignore or deny the emotions you are experiencing at the time. As humans, it is natural for us to experience all sorts of emotions, be they negative or positive. The “good vibes only” approach to life can sometimes lead people away from the solution and land them in “denial mode.” It is important to understand that it is not the negative emotion that creates a ruckus, but the identification we derive from those negative emotions. Toxic positivity is when people feel intense negative emotions but force themselves to ignore or distract themselves from those feelings and emotions.
