Toxic Positivity

This week we talk all about toxic positivity and how it can actually be harmful to be overly positive when people are struggling. We give tips on how to meet people where they are at and suggestions of what to say when someone is sad. Then we answer your listener questions including one listener who wants to know where the line is between normal positivity and toxic positivity and another listener who is considering quitting social media over the way it makes her feel. In the news we talk about the role of astroturfing in recent protests, how to play Survivor via Zoom & parents eavesdropping on their kids’ online therapy sessions. Angela mourns her would-be wedding day and Laura gets mad at people not following social distancing guidelines.
