Perspectives with Ashley Berges

Is it Optimism or Toxic Positivity? [Ep.694]

In today’s live show Ashley will be exploring and explaining positivity and at what point it turns toxic. Many of us are optimistic and try to find the silver lining no matter what, however their are those times that pain, suffering, and turmoil are part of life, how do we deal with it for ourselves and how do we talk to our friends and family when they ‘re going through turmoil? We will be understanding the difference between optimism and toxic positivity and how to be more aware of our words and the words of others. There is nothing wrong with positivity however we want to be aware of other’s feelings and needs when going through stress and pain. A family member may use toxic positivity and it may be making you feel weak, depressed, or that your feelings are wrong.
