Infertility and Toxic Positivity

Toxic Positivity Hurts

Infertility is profoundly sad, so what does it feel like when positivity is forced on you? What does it feel like to be force-fed Toxic Positivity?

Spoiler alert, it sucks...

Toxic positivity is the belief that, regardless of how difficult or challenging the situation may be, people should maintain an unwaveringly positive mindset.

The key difference between Optimism (which is a good thing) and Toxic Positivity (A bad thing) is that toxic positivity rejects all difficult emotions.

In this episode, we explore the specific emotions we experience when encountering Toxic Positivity and what we can do to cope with it.

If you feel like you have ever had to deal with toxic positivity then this episode is for you!
