Description - Toxic Positivity: Keeping It Real in a World Obsessed with Being Happy by Whitney Goodman
Our culture is obsessed with positivity. From "good vibes only" memes, to "life is good" bumper stickers to endless advice to "look on the bright side," we're constantly told that the key to happiness is to silence negativity wherever it crops up, in ourselves and others. But if positive thinking is the answer, why are so many of us anxious, depressed, and burnt out?In Toxic Positivity, sought-after therapist and relationship expert Whitney Goodman sheds light on the pervasive harm of dismissive positivity, and explains how we can learn to welcome a range of feelings and experiences in order to more authentically support ourselves and each other. Empowering, relatable, and timely, this life-changing book shows why the happiest and healthiest people are those who can hold space for all feelings and experiences - not just positive ones.
