Confidence Made Easy

EPISODE #149 - Positivity Vs Positive Reframing

Toxic positivity is the assumption that you should be positive all the time even in difficult situations.


This approach is damaging because it doesn’t allow room for how we genuinely feel & it further re-enforces the lie that we shouldn’t feel bad or we shouldn’t experience negative emotions, which simply isn't true.



The positive reframe is acknowledging what’s going on - what feels true for you & exploring what else you know to be true through a more encouraging & supportive lens.


When the time is right positively reframing our experiences helps us move forward & feel better.
