Forcing Toxic Positivity

When people push you to "keep being positive" do not react immediately, instead, with a level head, try these:

  1. Ask the person to clarify their intentions as to why they're pushing for positivity
  2. Let them explain what positivity means to them and the importance of why you should be positive too. Have them elaborate
  3. Engage in a genuine conversation about what you're feeling and the importance of "It's okay not to be okay"
