Toxic Positivity: Should You Be Concerned About It?
Have you ever stopped to think about what common sayings are actually telling you if they're said without context? "Kill Them With Kindness" is something we've all said and we've all heard a million times before, and sure, we know that it means to not sink to someone else's level. BUT, have you ever thought about what it's saying and how it's perceived in the brain when context isn't provided? Think about the kids in your life for a second. It's safe to assume they don't have a clue what this saying implies, so they take it at face value and...Without context, you are basically saying that you have to be nice to people who aren't nice to you. It doesn't matter how horrible someone is treating you; you still have to be kind to them. You have to treat people well even if they treat you horribly. And this isn't true, nor should it ever be. You don't have to be mean but you definitely don't have to be kind to someone who disrespects, bullies, or degrades you.
