Are You Stuck In Toxic Positivity?

Are you using positivity in a toxic way without knowing it?

Paul explores how many of us use positivity as a coping mechanism to avoid dealing with negative emotions and core issues, sharing his personal experience of using positivity to mask his feelings and the detrimental effects it had on his life.

He discusses the concept of spiritual bypassing and how it can be another form of toxic positivity, encouraging you to hold space for your negative thoughts and feelings, and how it can provide valuable insights into unresolved issues.

  • Toxic positivity is using positivity as a way to mask or avoid negative emotions and situations.
  • Positivity can be used in a toxic way when it prevents us from addressing core issues and emotions.
  • Spiritual bypassing is another form of toxic positivity, where people use spiritual practices to avoid dealing with difficult emotions and situations.
  • Chasing positivity and external material things will not fill the void inside; true growth and fulfilment come from doing the inner work.


"You could be using positivity in a toxic way to mask what is really going on."

"The more you chase something, the less likely you are to experience it."

"Your truth is important to get to. Focus on the themes."
