Ok I get what your saying. What I cannot agree with yet is it is not ok to not feel ok. Sure in the short time it’s ok and part of the grieving process. But I feel that this message is tell people is it’s ok to not feel ok.
I also kinda feel that if it invalidates someone they are not ok and should get help.
I must say though this is just my feelings about it and I’m not saying I’m right I just like the discussion about this Toxic positive topic
I am also not a professional. Unless you need you hardwood floors refinished

You don’t use the term “toxic positivity” do you?

I’m sorry I should have add more info in my question. “Toxic Positivity” is a term that some therapists are using in Minnesota. They where highlighted in a article in the Star Tribune. And they where talking about the positive terms that we have been bombarded over the last month because of our current situation.
I guess for me yes the commercials on T.V like hope, in this together, etc. are annoying at times I don’t believe that it is possible to have toxic positivity. If those words/terms provoke real anger or anxiety there is something you need to deal with. But don’t blame it on the words or what these messages are trying to do.
