Saturday Stories - Toxic Positivity

Do you ever think sometime it's unhealthy to be positive? I do. 

I read a quote a little while ago that went something like "She had a thousand struggles but only spoke of her joys". Underneath it where a whole pile of comments agreeing and saying that positivity was the key and the only way to be happy.

I couldn't disagree more. Being positive all the time is just not healthy. If you're repressing your feelings instead of acknowledging them, that's not healthy at all. It's okay to speak of pain and struggles, it's normal, healthy and necessary. Being positive all the time is not healthy at all. 

You can speak of troubles and still have a positive attitude.
