I read a weird article yesterday entitled, "What is Toxic Positivity? Why It's OK to Not Be OK Right Now." "Toxic Positivity" as I understand it, is that weak, fake positive spin approach to seeing reality. It means deluding yourself into thinking some bad set of circumstances isn't really so bad, or that it'll just pass. The term "toxic positivity" is stupid, though. It's a complete oxymoron. If it was legitimately positive, it could never be toxic. It should really be called "Phony Positivity" because it refers to the attitude of someone who is faking positivity.
