#104: The Dark Side of Positive Vibes

"You cannot solve a problem you are unwilling to have" - Dr. Nicole Cain 

Looking on the bright side or trying to stay positive in a less than desirable circumstance isn't a bad thing, it is part of our survival. However, in a world where mindfulness, wellness, manifestation and gratitude could be "the cure" for many struggles, as with anything - the push to be positive can be taken to the extreme. The problem is when we negate or suppress our feelings (or do this to others) to quickly, to often or too long where where those whom are experiencing the negative feeling feel invalidated, more shameful or even crazy. Those unacknowledged negative feelings just don't go away either, they may manifest into other physical or phycological symptoms. Could toxic positivity be getting in the way of your healing? 

In this episode we share Dr. Nicole Cain's top 10 indicators of toxic positivity, why toxic positivity is so problematic and what to do instead if you find yourself in a toxic positivity narrative or environment.
