Hello and welcome to episode 297 of The Mindful Kind podcast.

In this episode, you'll learn about toxic positivity and how you can protect yourself from it. Please keep in mind that toxic positivity can be a complicated issue and there might not always be a "black and white" solution.

Here are some strategies for protecting yourself from toxic positivity:

  • Don't blame yourself if someone says you're not "happy enough." You might like to remove yourself from the situation and take some time to process your feelings where you feel safe.
  • Use a self-soothing strategy, like soothing touch or a self-compassionate affirmation.
  • Honour your emotions and needs.
