What is the difference? I think @Rihana started a thread on this.. I feel I was mentally conditioned by toxic positivity.. My mom taught me.. 1) See ONLY the good in people and don’t find faults. 2) Don’t be sensitive 3)control your emotions 4) Try to get a good name from in-laws (I know we need to give respect but why good name or medal??) 5) Always stay silent in any situation and adjust so that relationships don’t break. I feel the above are toxic positivity.I am in my forties and still struggling emotionally due to the above.The inner child in memos not yet healing. I mom taught what she knew best.My upbringing is total crap surrounded by toxic relatives. My mom forgot she is a different person and am different..anyways.. I think the above are toxic positivity. So can anyone different and clear what is positivity and what is toxic?
