Let this sink in. I can’t emphasize enough how toxic positivity that’s running rampant in the woo woo community needs to be healed. We became powerful manifestors when we embrace ALL of our experience.

Mindset work was only a bandaid slapped over my wounds. ⠀ ⠀ Perhaps you’re starting to feel the same? No way can I be the only person to ever admit this! ⠀ ⠀ I started my personal development journey with allll the mindset work the internet had to offer. Law of Attraction, positive thinking, affirmations… ⠀ ⠀ But in my weak moments, all those ~positive thoughts~ would turn into dark, sad thoughts, and I would get SO mad at myself, and also SCARED because “Omg! Like attracts like, now I’m going to attract all the negative energy into my life!”⠀ ⠀ #ToxicPositivity is a thing, yall. When you cover up the real shit with the fake happy shit. And I for one, am so over that. ⠀ ⠀ You know what’s made me feel more whole? More whole than I’ve ever felt in my entire life?⠀ ⠀ Peeling back these positivity masks I put on, to observe the darkness that lay behind it. ⠀ ⠀ To confront the sadness in me.⠀ ⠀ To reach out my hand to the jealous bitch that resides in the depths of my mind. ⠀ ⠀ To say, “Well, shit. You live inside me, I might as well get to know you.”⠀ ⠀ This stuff isn’t always the easiest. Sometimes I literally want to bang my head against a wall to step out of the emotions that these parts of me bring up. Sometimes I do actually bang my head against a wall. Physical pain hurts less than emotional pain. ⠀ ⠀ BUT I will never stop saying this - it’s been so worth it. Getting to know ALL of me (and there is still so much to know) has opened my heart to getting to know ALL of others. ⠀ ⠀ The more pain I accept in my body, the more pain I see in others, and the more compassion I have for those around me. My ability to love has increased, and still I know I am nowhere near the depths that this can take me. ⠀ ⠀ My body has officially become my ally. For that I am grateful for the life I once used to curse. ⠀ ⠀ I’m creating a free mini-course with the concepts and practices I used to get to this place. I hope it helps you as much as it’s transformed me.

🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿You might not know this but I’m Scottish 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ A Glaswegian at heart 💔 but living in the midlands.... and when I see those positive quotes “think happy!” I can’t help but roll my eyes and say (with a Glaswegian twang) AYE OK 🙄 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Shoot me, but I’m not a massive fan of positivity. I’ve written several articles about toxic positivity over the years, in my battle to defend my right to be sad when I need to be. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 😠 Feeling negative emotions builds resilience, and makes you more emotionally intelligent. So you can shove your positive thoughts up yer arse! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Who’s with me?! 🤗👉🏻🍑

We’ve all been there, liking and wanting to be filled with ‘good vibes only’. Today, let’s try and understand why that isn’t the healthiest goal to have or live by. Expecting everything to be positive goes against us. Not every event leaves us gleeful, and not every emotion is a joyous one. So what do we do when we feel ‘not so positive’? Are we supposed to pretend that we’re happy because we’re trying so hard to be the perfect person? Does this pretending do any good for our mental health? By pretending are we accepting, or rejecting how we really feel? Stop, take your time, and think about these questions. Accepting your whole range of emotions (the good & not so good) is actually a good thing. Brett Ford, a lead author at a study conducted at the University of California states that “people who accept negative emotions without judging or trying to change them are able to cope with their stress more successfully.” What he (and us) are trying to say, is that accepting your emotions is allowing all of them to exist, knowing that it’s something we all experience as humans. Understanding that it’s just a part of the process, and not something that defines how great you are as a human being. Instead of judging how you feel, try and accept it and understand that how you react towards that feeling is a choice you get to make. Try saying, “I’m feeling anxious right now and that’s okay” instead of “why am I feeling so anxious” Instead of chasing happiness, try chasing authenticity. Be real with yourself. Understand that the ‘bad vibes’ is just a part of human experience and even if your life doesn’t fit into an Instagram quote IT IS OK. Journaling, grounding and mindfulness techniques, and meditation are great tools that can help you. P.S If you feel that negative emotions are overwhelming and affecting you to an extent you’re unable to control, seek help and talk to a professional.

1/3 - This year has been tough. My body going through fucking chances through all the rigorous breakdown of what I own. Everything has dissolved and now I am lost. I can’t find anything in this desert and yet I am here with myself... and I realized that life/god/universe/mother will strip you down to nothing in order for you to get liberated. YES! Even as I am naked and afraid in my wildness, I know I’m free and I will not hide. . . . . #blackwomen #blackgirlmagic #fatbabepower #fatpositive #mybodymychoice #fatacceptance #melanin #melaninpoppin #toxicpositivity #spiritualawakening #healing

2/3 My father was around only when he could love my mother. He was only there for her. My mother found a good man to replace him, however that man didn’t love me either. So I was a step child... a foster child in two homes. My story is that no man who see me and no woman would validate me. From the awkwardness of a kid never forming a solid friendships and relationships till now and finding my mother in other strong black women such as my childhood “bff’s” mother... even in @jeniferlewisforreal, I was alone. . I spent most of my life hiding away listening to sad music because I had no way of expressing or understanding the sadness within me. It was @iyanlavanzant and @oprah that taught me about the story we create for ourselves and believe and hold on to for dear life that ultimately destroy us. It was at that moment I knew something must be removed. . . Without therapy or any help, it took many ahh-ha moments... self care books and many songs, it took me YEARS to get to the realization of MY story that needed to be released. . I release you. You do not belong to me. Because I am more than the things that happen to me and break me down. I am more than my body and when it is gone, I will still be me. A strong, lovable -deserving of all great things- beautiful black woman. . . . #blackwomen #blackgirlmagic #fatbabepower #fatpositive #mybodymychoice #fatacceptance #melanin #melaninpoppin #toxicpositivity #spiritualawakening #healing

3/3 There is a new story by way of song. When I think about my greatness now, I’m reminding of the words of the late and great Chris Cornell’s “I am a highway”: . “I am not your rolling wheels I am the highway I am not your carpet ride I am the sky I am not your blowing wind I am the lightening I am not your autumn moon I am the night” . . I am worthy to being seen as a whole being. You may have ideologies of me that reduce me to my body, to things that I can yield for you... but I’m not your ideologies. I am not for your usage.. and to be discarded and disregarded. I am a masterpiece of a multitude of beautiful things and I’ll revel in every part of me. I am worthy of greater things that I can even imagine. . Everyday I step towards a way out of my wildness and the lost (and loss) that I feel and find my way back to my truest self... to an identity I have yet to see for myself but that I know will allow me to feel my power through and through and be the everlasting illumination of the empress I was born to be. . . . . #blackwomen #blackgirlmagic #fatbabepower #fatpositive #mybodymychoice #fatacceptance #melanin #melaninpoppin #toxicpositivity #spiritualawakening #healing

•Positivity isn't always the best option to help others, you can't just sprinkle positive dust on them and make their problems simply vanish. We sometimes fall in the hole that is called 'Toxic Positivity', and in this term we ignore, and repress negative emotions. That is absolutely not the right mindset.

@danielletridenti

The good vibes only rhetoric promoted in certain facets of the wellness/self development community is problematic for several reasons. 〰️ Forced positivity is a LIE and lying to your self creates more inner conflict, confuses your ability to discern how you feel AND erodes self trust. 〰️ While these phrases may be well intended, the impact is harmful. These phrases are dismissive, invalidating, shaming, steeped in privilege, entitlement, misuse, misinterpretation, and reflective of bypassing the nuances/complexities of feelings and being humxn, as well as ignorant of the reality of the interlocking systems of oppression and their impact. Humxns do not feel better after being told something that minimizes their feelings and lived experience. 〰️ ALL feelings are valuable and serve a purpose. “Negative” feelings actually alert us to things that may not be working or right. Every emotion is acceptable. Feeling our feelings across the full spectrum is how we learn resiliency and how to regulate ourselves. Favoring of one type of emotion or another, labeling good versus bad, encouraging fake positivity is a form of bypassing. It’s harmful at best. 〰️ It deeply concerns me that we are not creating a space that encourages individuals to acknowledge, experience, and accept and integrate all feelings including feelings that are dark, that feel bad, unpleasant or difficult, or that we’re straight up invalidating and dismissing anything that’s not positive. 〰️ It’s not about avoiding, resisting, pushing through or wanting to transcend them in the name of “getting to the next place” or because of “what’s on the other side” and what’s waiting will be “better.” This sets people up to be disappointed and to feel as though they are failing because it’s doesn’t speak to the reality, nuance and depth of every day humxn life and affect.

'When things change inside you, things change around you too' If there's anything I've learned as I get older is that running away from problems is only a TEMPORARY FIX. I've literally moved across different cities thinking it would help solve my problems, only to find that those same issues reappear shortly after the move. Since then, I try to be more conscious when I make big decisions, making sure I am not making them out of fear or trying to band aid something that can't actually be fixed. Instead, I try my best to choose what I truly want and be in the best mindset possible when I make a decision. Mapping out my choices in my mind helps put everything in perspective for me. Amidst all the chaos both internal and external, I always make time for reflection-- how much change has happened over the last few months in anyway. What role has these problems/changes play in how much I have grown as a person? What resulted from emerging from these problems? Always remind yourself that growth is always there and all these problems are there to help you grow. It doesn't even have to be life-changing to hold significance. YOU CAN'T CHANGE/SOLVE SOMETHING YOU WON'T CONFRONT-- WHAT YOU ARE NOT CHANGING, YOU ARE CHOOSING Love, Juju 😘 . . . . . . . #inspiration #mentalhealthbreak #mentalhealthawareness #mentalhealth #heal #fakepositivity #toxicpositivity #ig #photooftheday #youareworthit #life #motivational #mentalhealthwarrior #healing

@herbanhealing

It’s ok to not be ok. You don’t always have to be positive, in fact, positivity is a myth created by people who aren’t comfortable with their own emotions, I personally prefer those who are ok with feeling and expressing the entire range of human emotions, rather than bottling up the bad ones inside and allowing them to kill you. You are worthy. You deserve love and all the goodness. No matter what. In chinese medicine, emotions are some of the most detrimental pathogens to physical, mental, emotional and overall health. Stuck emotions reek havoc in the body, so, it’s important to allow yourself to feel what you are feeling and to try to process them in healthy ways rather than just pretending as if everything is ok when it’s not. Remember, you are worthy, you matter, even when you’re not at your best, even when you Fuck up, even when everything feels hopeless. You deserve love and what you feel is real and valid, honor whatever you are feeling so that you can move through it, and not hold onto it. Holding onto things causes Qi to stop, get stuck, and stagnant Qi is at the root of quite a lot of the patterns that cause health disorders in our culture. You matter. You matter so much, so don’t beat yourself up when emotions are hitting you hard, life is dumping onto you, you mess up, etc, you will likely be ok, especially if you allow yourself to feel what you are feeling. Be easy on yourself. And never forget that you matter. One of the best ways to help with processing stuck, old or even fresh emotions is acupuncture. We move that Qi! This time of year, the fall, is the time of the lung, the emotion associated with the lung is grief, so if you feel old or stuck emotions/grief coming up right now, that’s normal and if you have access to an acupuncturist I highly recommend it as acupuncture saves my life and is integral part of my self care. #feelings #emotions #chinesemedicine #emotionalpathogens #evilqi #movethatqi #emotionsarereal #toxicpositivity #itsoktofuckup #itsoktobesad #yourpainisreal #emotionalprocessing #healingyouremotions #extraordinaryvessels #classicalchinesemedicine #acupuncture #traditionalchinesemedicine #tcm #yintang #li4 #qimovesfreely

@happysoulcollective

It’s okay to not be ok. We wouldn’t have all of the emotions we come with if some were “bad” as some of society & media would have us believe. If you feel angry, instead of focusing on not being angry, sit with it and ask it why it’s there. It will naturally subside on its own, and will be a mirror for you in your own healing process. Instead of telling a friend “Don’t be sad”, try to listen instead. We are a social species, we regulate our emotions through other people. In other words, we need each other. If you or your partner is jealous, have a conversation about it where no one is making the other person wrong. By letting these emotions take their natural course as you would happiness, for example, they flow in and out on their own, not getting stuck or stored in the body. ⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ ⠀ #meditation #love #mindfulness #spirituality #spiritual #healing #peace #wellness #selflove #motivation #consciousness #zen #selfcare #inspiration #energy #awakening #life #meditate #enlightenment #health #lameditation #manifest #manifestation #toxicpositivity #emotions

@symatasaduq

⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Exactly a decade back, when my mother passed away, I silently suffered from the terror of 'toxic positivity' along with the pain of the loss itself. At the funeral, I was repeatedly told by everyother person سب ٹھیک ہو جائے گا . I wanted to shout at top of my lungs and tell them to stop telling me that ... as it was offensive. Their unmindful words belittled my loss as if it was something that could be fixed. And what apparently was intentioned to console me, caused me pain. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Next time you see someone suffering, tell them that you believe in them and don't tell them to get over it already. It's ok to not be positive all the time. It's ok if you can't see the good in everything, it's important to make sense of how you feel. Be it anger, grief, pain or joy, it's important to be at peace with your feelings; with all of them. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #loss #grief #toxicpositivity #pain #mentalhealth #mentalhealthawareness #mentalwellness #beeasyonyourself #positivity #beyourself #healing #thursdaymotivation #thursdaythoughts #symatasaduq

@phosphenes.are.real

There is a lot of what I think of as "toxic positivity" about now. The truth is you don't have to be at full speed every second of the day. You dont always have to feel positive, motivated, brave or determined and it doesn't always help to eat healthy, do sports, spend time outside and do lots of Yoga. Sometimes it is just difficult and complicated and that's ok too. It is ok not to have "good vibes only" every day! Appreciate ALL of your emotions. 🌲🌿🍃 #toxicpositivity #bademotionsarentbad #goodvibesonlyisnothealthy #allowence #selfcare

¿Cuántas veces has escuchado “la vida es 90% actitud y 10% lo que te pasa”?, 🧐 y qué difícil es, ¿no crees? ¿Cómo tener una actitud positiva cuando están pasando cosas que te hacen creer que el mundo está en tu contra, que no sales de una cuando ya estás en otra?😔 Sé que no es fácil, pero tampoco es imposible, es un trabajo de día día que debemos decidir hacer para poder llevar nuestra vida más ligera. 🤨 Las cosas pasan y no siempre podemos controlarlas, pero podemos tomar la decisión de aprender de ellas, de crecer y de tomar las cosas buenas que nos deja siempre. La mayor parte de las veces cada situación difícil trae una enseñanza, es una lección que llega a nosotros para aprender y para crecer, aunque en ocasiones no logramos identificar cuál es esa lección, con el paso del tiempo siempre lo descubrimos, y si por algo no lo ves, tal vez se repite. Por eso es importante despertar cada día con la mejor actitud sabiendo que todo pasa y que todo tarde o temprano va a estar mejor. Con esto no te quiero decir que siempre vas a estar con la sonrisa de oreja a oreja o que jamás te vas a sentir triste o no vas a sentir cansancio ante ciertas situaciones, lo que te quiero decir es que, si lo vives con una actitud positiva, con alegría, teniendo tus momentos para vivir cada una de tus emociones, pero retomando tus fuerzas para salir adelante y buscar lo bueno de cada situación, vas a hacer que todo el camino sea más sencillo, disfrutarás el proceso y cuando pase esta tormenta, podrás disfrutar todavía más el arcoiris. Pero ¿cómo le hago? Siempre empieza tu día agradeciendo, agradece lo que sí tienes, agradece que estás vivo, una nueva oportunidad, un nuevo día para volver a empezar, para luchar por lo que quieres, agradece cada una de las pequeñas cosas que tienes en tu vida y sonríe por ellas y por las que están por venir, recuerda que la vida es así, un espejo, y te regresará lo que le quieras dar. #positivequotes #positivevibeonly #vibes #positive #toxicpositivity #psicologia #psicologiaclinica #psicologiaonline #psicologiapositiva #estrategias #miercoles #lifeofatherapists

No amount of positivity can can cover an unprocessed emotion.⁣ ⁣ Anytime that motivation is offered without first validating someone’s struggle, it’s just collective suppression. ⁣ ⁣ You can tell someone to keep going no matter what but the bill will be presented somewhere. ⁣ ⁣ Hold space and validate first... and then offer hope with motivation. ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ #toxicpositivity #motivationalquotes #motivational #hope #holdspace #suppression #positivity #emotionalintelligence #emotionalquotes #quotestoliveby #coach #highlysensitiveperson #childhoodtrauma #healing #selfdevelopment #lifecoach #validation #iamenough

Can we take a second to embrace this!!! One thing I have loved about therapy is how my feelings have been given validity and a space to live while also giving me hope. . See, I tried the whole “positive vibes” thing but again, I was pushing away my trauma for looking positive on the outside. . You can live in your emotion, allow it to be your truth, work through it AND have hope for the real ness that will flourish from it. .

Life can be a rollercoaster and the darkness is just as valid as the light. I don’t broadcast my isht for sympathy likes or to be a downer, especially not to hear generic lines about positivity (thanks anyways 🙄) , but to be real. We’re all here trying to show our best angles and big up our accomplishments — and that’s beautiful, I’m so happy for all of it! I do a lot of that, too. But through my perpetual search for balance, I think it’s important to be vulnerable and open. To embrace all aspects of human experience, even the lows, so I invite you in. Your love and support these last few weeks really pushed me through this rough patch. I’m getting back to feeling like myself and ready to crush my day 💥 I love you all ❤️ Thank you 🙏

@namastenslay

The “happiness trap” is real. Pain is a practical part of the growing process. READ THAT AGAIN! When we refuse to experience and face our pain, we unknowingly stunt our emotional growth. We become slaves to our emotions instead of developing the skills required to tolerate life’s inevitable suffering. Like joy, pain is a natural emotion that is to be experienced in your lifetime. How else would you recognize joy, if you don’t know its distant cousin misery? Don’t aim to be happy all the time, aim for acceptance. Accept that the pain is there to show you where you need healing and extra care. Pain is simply nature’s way of saying pay attention. Take a moment to breathe and ask yourself “How can I give myself a little extra TLC today?”

✨ Toxic positivity ✨ This is something we’re sometimes bombarded with, both in our everyday lives and via social media. “Be positive! See the good in every situation! Think happy thoughts! Stop being so negative! It could always be worse!” Toxic positivity encourages people to only be happy, and to suppress emotions such as sadness, frustration and anger - emotions society has labeled as “negative”. However, I’ve found that allowing yourself to fully feel these emotions rather than sweeping them under the rug is actually beneficial. While I do personally try to see the good out of every situation, I feel it’s important to acknowledge and embrace whatever emotions we might be feeling in that moment. Sometimes it’s important for us to hold that emotion and accept it for what it is, rather than suppress it and force ourselves to be “happy” instead just because that’s what’s expected of us. These past few days have been emotionally challenging for me to say the least. I’m dealing with it by giving myself lots of time and space to take things in, keeping physically active, talking it out with family members, all in all knowing that things WILL turn out okay. Don’t let anyone ever make you feel ashamed of expressing yourself when your vibes are anything other than positive. You’re human, life happens, and it’s okay. (I do, however encourage you to seek help from a professional if you feel you need a little extra help with doing life ❤️). . . . . . . . . . . #toxicpositivity #toxicpositivityhelpsnoone #postivevibes #positivequotes #positivity #personaldevelopment #personalthoughts #mentalhealthawareness #mentalhealth #mentalhealthtips #goodvibes #goodvibesonly #goodvibesalways #yoga #yogaquotes #nusapenida #kelingkingbeach #baliindonesia #bali #balitravel #indonesia

After a great conversation in the office about toxic positivity, we are starting a blog post on the subject to share with you soon. These are great examples. While so many of us have posted messages like these or used language like this with good intentions, we realize now a slight shift is needed to fully support our loved ones and community. Our focus needs to shift from telling people how they should feel to listening and honoring their feelings and experiences with supportive language and actions. More coming soon! And if you have other “toxic positive” comments you wish people would stop using, share them in the comments. . . . Repost @whywerise with @get_repost ・・・ You may not always know what to say to those who are struggling with #MentalHealthIssues, but validating their feelings (both positive and negative) is a good place to start. What other advice do you have for talking about #MentalHealth challenges? . . . . . #WhyWeRise #WeRise #MentalHealthAwareness #MentalHealthAwareness #LifesBigQuestions #CommunityMatters #HereForYou #ToxicPositivity #itsokaytonotbeokay

Ah, I love it when I’m in my feelings and people tell me to just be happy. It always works! 🤡🤡 _ There’s a difference between toxic positivity and genuine positivity. Toxic positivity tends to use phrases such as “be happy” or “it’ll be okay” or “you’re fine”. People will say these positive phrases, but won’t back them up with any type of reasoning for why you should feel a certain way. _ I know that this is a difficult journey. Some people will tell you such shallow things. But there are those who will be completely genuine and honest with you. They’ll let you know that shit isn’t right and that’s okay. _ You’re gonna eat a lot of dirt during your lifetime. You’re gonna be stuck in the gutter, wondering what your life is and who you are as a person. That’s alright. This is life, not a fairy tale. It’s on us to decide how we want to respond to the trials and tribulations of today. It’s on us to decide how we want our day to go. Head up, let’s be great today and respond with great energy and some real ass positivity.

I read about "charlatanism" and "spiritual predation" and it challenges me a lot... . . Who doesn't wish to live in peace, love, joy? Also in this world governed by predation, the promise is targeted to hit the mark. The most pernicious aspect of this gentle New Age brainwashing is to make those who don't feel full of "love, peace and joy" feel guilty. That is why it's difficult to escape the values ​​of the unique thought of the new age. It has infiltrated everywhere, by the media (especially in women's and psychology magazines and advertising). "You" must be in the light, and live in joy and love! "You must aspire to harmony and peace, even if your life is chaos. It is the totalitarianism of goodness and happiness. We are paying for words and illusions (marketing and money-making business). This false-positive propaganda that denies the subtlety and paradoxes of individual destiny is a tyranny in the name of "goodness". If you are not in peace and love, then you have to improve yourself and participate in this stage that will put you back on the right path, that of light and joy. We are infantilized by the new age that has established the spiritual correctness by speculating on the psychic distress of the human being who leads an artificial life in a demented civilization. . . It follows that a large number of individuals are led by deleterious suggestion to do a lot of counter-existential things. And so the need to "save one's soul" illustrates how an initially positive polarization produces exactly the opposite of what religious teachings explain. In order to prevent the awakening of the consciousness of the human being, the memory of who he is, the predatory system will try to mislead him into manipulated spiritual ways, thus distorted by his false relay gurus, magi blacks and pseudo-shamans in the pay of occult groups or New Age, and who work masterfully among those who, still naive and candid. . . #charlatan #toxicpositivity #itsabusinness #discernement #inchargeofmylife #redflag

You can ignore reality all you want and live in a perpetual state of toxic positivity and optimism but you can't escape the consequences of ignoring reality where many negative aspects exist mainly because we actively ignore its objectivity. Don't be an optimist or a pessimist, be a realist because nowadays people are obsessed with positivity yet afraid to speak truthfully. Guess what, the truth isn't always positive and being happy 24/7 high on endogenous morphines is not only unrealistic but a socially acceptable form of escapism. The real world doesn't work like that, especially our modern predicament we're in as a species. See the world for what it is, not what you want it to be, and then lead by example by creating a world you want, but until that outcome occurs, be honest with yourself and others folks. #toxicpeople #toxicpositivity #newagebullshit #newagemovement #ignorance #hopeium #photoelectricsynergy #biohacking #biohacker #biohacks #epigenetics #objectivetruth

I hateee coming across "positive vibes only" posts on instagram or when I see little wall hangings of it all the time at 5 below- usually marketed towards teenagers. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Toxic positivity is when we force the idea that the only acceptable emotions or "energy" people/ourselves are allowed to give off and share is positive. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Research shows that accepting negative emotions, instead of shunning them, actually allows for a decrease of negative emotions over time and lead to better overall emotional health. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The internet is full of "positive" sayings that often really negatively impact people who are struggling- What are some that you have come across?⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #toxicpositivity # #emotionalawareness #mentalhealth #selfcare #toolkit #muslimmentalhealth #socialworker #muslimsocialworker

Life is full of ups and downs, so it’s normal and healthy to feel the full range of human emotions. This was a hard pill to swallow for me, but don’t fake it. Be real with your friends, let them be real with you, and let’s be there for each other! 💞 If you aren’t letting your friends express any emotion other than positive, then that’s problematic. Yes, try to have an optimistic outlook, but know that it won’t always be ☀️ and 🌈 no matter your mindset! You’re going to have to deal with problems and if you bury your emotions it will just lead to more problems down the road. Be a friend and #bereal #dontfakeit #toxicpositivity

@thepostpartumchronicles

Toxic positivity is an unrealistic push for an ideal and constant happy mental state. This encourages one to only think about positive thoughts and to reject any negative emotion. While this may sound like a good thing, when you deny negative or painful emotions you just end up putting a bandaid on feelings that need to be addressed and worked through. Evolutionarily, we as humans cannot program ourselves to fix our emotional state to reflect only positive feelings. We are taught to feel wrong if we are experiencing “bad” emotions and that we should somehow be able to force a “happy” mental state. However, when we push the “bad” emotions aside, we end up amplifying them and not treating the root of the problem. For a mother struggling with PPD/A, I cannot stress enough how important VALIDATION is. Unfortunately, many people struggle with the right thing to say when they see someone in pain, so what often follows is something like “don’t worry, it will get better,” “try to stay positive,” “stop harping on the negative things, and think happy thoughts.” While this may be well intentioned, what the struggling mother hears is, “stop moping around,” “snap out of it,” “if you just looked at things more positively you wouldn’t be so miserable.” This triggers a shame spiral that feeds the already overwhelming feelings of guilt, worthlessness, and depression. If your loved one is struggling as a new mother, or has PPD/A, the best thing you can do for her is to validate her emotions. Acknowledging her true feelings will give her the ability to consciously choose a response that reflects her actual emotional state, rather than hiding behind a mask of forced perfection and happiness. In doing this, you will be supporting her to have the emotional courage to explore her true feelings and hopefully aid her in a journey toward healing and recovery. If you are struggling with the right thing to say, just be there for her. This is one of the greatest gifts you can give a mother struggling with PPD/A. #postpartumdepression #postpartumanxiety #postpartumrecovery #mentalhealth #momlife #therapy #toxicpositivity #validation #support #endthestigma

@independentmuse

We spend too much time pretending that we’re okay when we’re not and refusing to acknowledge our shadow emotions. This is the problem with toxic positivity. It teaches us to ignore and suppress negative emotions. To be balanced, there must be dark, and there must be light. Suppressing our feelings to please others often leads to repression, depression and rage. However, you must feel and acknowledge all your emotions as part of your self-awareness journey to truly heal.

Feel your Fucking Feelings⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ It's a huge lesson I have learned over the past few years.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ If you want to cry, don't hold back. Have you heard the expression "choked up". That is our emotions and our energy wanting to be released but we hold back in fear of what it may look like. Unfortunately I see this a lot with men who have had toxic masculinity shoved down their throat since they were little boys ... Don't cry, Man up, Don't show emotion, Suck it up, Crying makes you weak, and on and on and on. And that is SO harmful for them, their growth and their future relationships. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Don't MAN UP⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ SOFTEN UP⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ This goes for SO many women too who have been told being ANGRY makes you a BITCH or someone nobody wants to be around. Or if you are angry you must be on your period. I mean ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ What⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ In⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Actual⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Fuck⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ No wonder there is SO much stigma to break through in honoring our Periods, Moon Cycles, Bleeding and Bodies.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Toxic Positive is also shoved down our throat on the daily.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ It is SO harmful to our wellbeing to think we can't be anything but positive and happy all the time.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Some days and situations make us sad, angry, annoyed, frustrated, panic, anxious, traumatized ... This is OK. and once again.... THESE EMOTIONS ARE OK TO FEEL.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Just feel them in their entirety. Don't hold back. We are made to heal. The only way out of the emotion is through the emotion or else it gets shoved down and stored in our nervous system, cells, fascia and muscles resulting in ALL kinds of physical aliments.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ We don't want to live in these emotions. We don't want to disrupt their natural flow. Feel them and let go. Everything is temporary. We should have a positive outlook on life for our overall health but FEELING FEELINGS doesn't mean you aren't positive. You are a feeling human. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Allow yourself to feel all the things. Our quality of life depends on the array of our emotions.

@oldworldqueen

One of my friends recently introduced me to the idea of toxic positivity. Sometimes when people are feeling low, especially if they’re dealing with depression or other mental issues, saying shit like “look on the bright side” or “be more optimistic” is just not helpful. I’m forever trying to be positive and when I’m struggling with that I tend to stay off social media and keep to myself. I can’t be positive 100% of the time and I can’t seem to fake the funk when I’m not feeling it. I’ve been having a hard month or two and it was such a breath of fresh air to discuss dark moments with open hearts. It’s okay to hurt, it’s okay to feel low just as long as you know it doesn’t define you and it’s not permanent. I’m not talking about giving in to depression but allowing yourself to take the time you need to deal with it, to heal and to grow. Trying to force yourself to “buck up and smile” for the sake of others isn’t healthy. Feel it out, take your time, and allow yourself to be honest with those around you, allow yourself to say “right now, I’m not okay.” It can be so freeing to take the mask off and just be. 💙🌝✨🌱⏳ #honesty #toxicpositivity #peace #truth #universallove #understanding #interconnected #connectedness #sadgirlsclub #bananatree #rainyseason #fullmoon

Baru belajar istilah ini dari IKIM fm @ikim.my iaitu slot Kembara Syifa' dalam perjalanan beli juadah Puasa Sihat Hari ke-2. Menarik dari pakar psikologi. Rupanya, keadaan memaksa untuk sentiasa "positif dan gembira" sehingga menidakkan naluri emosi manusia untuk rasa sedih, marah atau menzahirkan segalanya itu bersifat TOKSIK. Seharusnya mesti jujur dengan perasaan. Mungkin susah sikit jika dikelilingi masyarakat konservatif tapi kita boleh menjadi lebih "educated" dengan pelajaran baru ini. #toxicpositivity #psychology #Muslim #Islam

#embrace #kind #gratitude Do you own a gratitude-hammer? Have you ever said this to yourself? “I am struggling but I have so much to be thankful for. I should not be hurting.” If your answer is yes, then you own a gratitude-hammer and you are not afraid to use it! Ouch! • If your usual approach to pain is to dismiss it, ignore it, punish it, or criticize it, then you will use gratitude like a hammer to smash away the metaphorical nail that is your pain! • When I see someone try to hammer away their pain I ask, “Where did your pain go?” Sometimes I hear, “I don’t know.” But more often than not, the person points somewhere and says, “It's stuck in my stomach.” “It’s lodged in my throat.” “It's making my head ache." Or "I tried to hide it back here,” as they point behind their chair. And then I usually hear, "But it didn’t go away.” • Put down the gratitude-hammer and try a more all-encompassing approach: *I can be thankful and hurting at the same time. *Hurt and gratitude can live together. *I am in pain and I am thankful too. *My pain does not cancel out my gratitude. *My gratitude does not cancel out my pain. *Pain and gratitude. I'll keep ‘em both. *I can take turns focusing on my pain and my gratitude. *I can trust myself to hurt and not forget that I am thankful too. • Gratitude used as a hammer creates more pain. It is harsh. Harsh gratitude is the practice of using gratitude to try to cancel out your pain. Kind gratitude is the practice of using gratitude to support yourself when you are in pain. One heals and one hurts. It's important to know the difference. • April Kaiserlian LMSW Try something new!

Happy Mental Health Day! 💕 So this is something I neverrrrrr talk about online but lately my anxiety and depression has been holding me back from a lot - from posting on social media to going out to getting dressed up to moving forward in my career. I’m working through it gradually with a therapist but sometimes I get tied up in exhaustion and work... (Because overworking is my coping mechanism so I don’t have to face my problems. 🤷🏼‍♀️ lol) I figured I’d share this because I’m sure many of you relate and you’re not alone. * * * There’s nothing wrong with having emotions, even though “toxic positivity” culture says so. Anxiety and depression can be a signal of a bigger issue. Feelings are something we need for survival. Anxiety is an indicator that something needs to happen and can give us the energy to get things done. Depression can be our body’s way of asking us to rest and examine what is going on. * * * And sometimes it’s just a chemical imbalance. Our brains get sick just like our bodies. We have to take care of our bodies and minds. I’m trying... * * * Image by @warmelon #toxicpositivity #anxiety #depression yamikawaii #mentalhealthawareness #mentalhealthday #pastel #pastelgoth #gurololita #pastelhair #warmelon

I know I skipped over Mental Health Day a few days ago. It’s something I’ve been passionate and outspoken about since losing my best friend to depression, but for some reason I couldn’t bring myself to talk about it. ⁣ ⁣ I’m not going to sit here and tell you to get help. ⁣ Or that it gets easier. ⁣ Or that there’s a bright light at the end of the tunnel. ⁣ It’s all bullshit. ⁣ Feel what you are feeling. ⁣ Sit with it. ⁣ Be uncomfortable. ⁣ It’s okay to not be okay.⁣ ⁣ The one thing I will tell you is, life is worth living. Even with the tragedies, the heartbreaks, setbacks and 45 as “president”, there are actual miracles that happen every day. There are reasons to keep living. ⁣ ⁣ I’m so proud of all the fighters who made it another day. Who choose to live through the pain. I see you.

Empathy can have compassion. But empathy can also have intolerance. You can be empathic for someone and also know that you don't have to tolerate bullshit. ✨ "Good vibes only" is such a toxic positivity notion that denies and invalidates the large spectrum of human emotions that we all feel. All emotion is good, you just have to how learn to accept the low vibrational ones with kindness by allowing yourself to feel your feels without judgemen and gently let them pass. ✨ You don't have to always be "nice" to be seen as "spiritual". So don't beat yourself if you're not happy happy joy joy 24/7, it's unrealistic. Sometimes the most spiritual thing you can do is cry it out and eat a bucket of icecream 🍨 Sometimes the most spiritual thing you can do it put a bitch in her place. RESPECTING YOUR BOUNDARIES IS SPIRITUAL. Taking ownership of your personal space is spiritual. Choosing who you're sharing your energy with is spiritual. Not being taken advantage of is spiritual. Allowing yourself to feel anger, sadness, or grief is spiritual af. ✨ Take care of your soul first 💜 #selfloveclub

I'm pumped for all of the #positive feedback that I've received on this episode already! I was expecting the complete opposite so I'm thrilled that it's resonating with many of you. ⁣ ⁣ As I say in the episode: Making someone think positively should never be the goal. Having compassion is a much healthier route for everyone. If you are able to demonstrate compassion, positivity has a chance to bloom naturally.⁣ ⁣ If you haven't heard about it, here's a short clip from the show.

“One day, in retrospect, the years of struggle will strike you as the most beautiful.” ⠀ — Sigmund Freud .⠀ .⠀ Does anyone else LOVE quotes?⠀ I have a big excel spreadsheet with my quote gatherings, and I usually just scroll through and one ends up calling my name to post.⠀ This one called to me bc it helps me think about how my current "struggle" (a.k.a. working a lot, feeling lots of feels, not knowing what will come next) will seem like a good thing later. Seems optimistic and encouraging: woohoo! ⠀ BUT I think this doesn't apply to everyone's struggle. Not to get into a place of comparison, but I think that not all struggles are created equal. I assume that people struggling with systematic oppression will not look back and view it as beautiful. Those struggling to preserve the earth and its remaining natural habitats or sacred ground will probably not look back on their struggle and find it inherently beautiful, especially when those lands are taken and destroyed despite their efforts ..... maybe the beauty is in the perseverance and the strength needed to get through it? ⠀ .⠀ ..... just another inconclusive IG post from me today! ⠀ What are your thoughts? ⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ Photo: @shopyucca#quoteaddict #firstworldproblems #wordsofwisdom #struggle #whyimeditate #mindfulness #toxicpositivity #retrospect #sigmundfreud #whiteceramics #inconclusive #mindfulliving #perspective #mindfulnessmatters #dailymeditation #ethelstudio
