Why our Toxic Positivity hoodie?
Our toxic positivity hoodie shows the effect of excessive positivity on mental health and the impact on the way we express geniune emotions. But what is toxic positivity? As defined by The Psychology Group, it’s the overgeneralization of a happy, optimistic state, that result in the denial, minimization and invalidation of the authentic human emotional experience.
In other words, you should always keep a positive attitude, no matter what’s going on in your life. Seems impossible, right? Well, yes. Because it is impossible.
While toxic positivity can take many forms, we’ve definitely all heard those words millions of times:
- Some people have it worse
- Think positively
- Don’t be sad
- And our favorite: Positive vibes only
Even if the intention is not to harm, it’s clear that it leaves no room for anything other than happy thoughts. But guess what? We are human. And as human, we’re bound to experience a whole range of feelings, from sadness to happiness, and everything in between. In fact, it’s impossible to consistently keep a positive mindset, and that’s totally OK.
Avoiding a genuine human experience
Toxic positivity can easily cover up and belittle real, authentic emotions. Yes, things could be worse, but it doesn’t mean they are not bad. It’s fair to want to feel anything you are actually feeling. And those feelings are valid, no matter what people say. And experiencing them is an efficient way to process them. With toxic positivity, it becomes easy to isolate yourself, put on a mask when you’re around people, because you’re not supposed to feel certain types of emotions.
Our toxic positivity hoodie shows that it exists, and it comes with harmful consequences. At Not Unworthy, we tell you that it’s OK to not be OK. You can experience a wide range of emotion, and deserve to express them, no matter.
