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.

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

Thank 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. Thanks again!
