False Positivity

As someone who promotes positivity and always tries to embody it, false positivity is a fascinating subject. I often look for the positive in every situation choosing not to focus on the bad as most of the times the situations making us negative are just a passing moment that won't even matter in a year. What's the point of spending your days drowning in a pessimistic mood for the small stuff? There is none. However, this shouldn't be confused with masking feelings with false positivity. 

All feelings are natural and in a world of depression and anxiety it seems like most people are afraid to feel, which is unnatural. Being sad and upset is normal, everyone goes through these emotions. There is no need to mask them with fake smiles. People are now judging each other for having "bad feelings". Instead of being acceptive when seeing someone sad, they tell them to stop crying or ask what's wrong with them. Le's make this clear, there is nothing wrong with expressing your emotions. It takes courage! Pushing away your feelings will only result in bursting at a random moments. Shaming your close ones for feelings you don't understand is not only wrong, but promotes a bad habit. Try to be supportive and a true friend. We are emotional creatures and should embrace it. Negative principals are vital in order to support relationships and form a balanced lifestyle. All emotions are part of life and need to be experienced. No need to mask or push them aside. Deal with them as they come, let them run their course. Say no to false positivity! 

If you're curious what has brought this, I stumbled upon a Ted Talk with psychologist Susan David.
