Possibly a slightly contentious one in some circles this episode, we are looking at why the constant un-ending drive to only ever look at the positive is actually harmful in many cases.
Sure, it’s great to look on the bright side, to count our blessings, and to see the good in whatever situation we find ourselves.
That does not mean, however, that we can simply ignore everyone else’s plights, deny their suffering, and tell them to loo on the bright side and cheer up!
Sometimes it is what they need to hear, sure.
And many other times it isn’t – it is toxic positivity which helps nobody who is in need!
