Do you ever feel like you’re constantly being told to be positive? Whether its through mantras like “good vibes only” and “look on the brightside,” not to mention the endless inspirational quotes and often well intended advice (both online and off), it can feel like silencing our emotions is the only way to live a “happy life.”
Whitney Goodman is a radically honest psychotherapist, whose new book, Toxic Positivity: Keeping It Real In A World Obsessed With Being Happy, shows readers how to shift the goal from being happy to being authentic in order to live fully. A millennial on a quest to make mental health information accessible and easy to understand, Whitney helps people who want to improve their relationships and emotional wellness.
In this episode, Lindsey and Whitney unpack how damaging toxic positivity can be to both ourselves and our relationships. She also provides us with tangible tools on how to work through and process difficult emotions to experience a more fulfilled and authentic life.
