A Quickie About Toxic Positivity (Episode 27)

Can reframing be misconstrued as toxic positivity? Bec wonders if she’s still allowed to be annoyed at super positive people. Nat suggests yes, although she suggests we all need to find our safe space to be grumpy. Bec worries about being fake if she’s too positive. Nat wonders if sometimes we are scared of healing.

The book we reference is Complaint by Sara Ahmed.
“Just” is an adverb.
"With" is a preposition.
And Nat can't find that director for the life of her!
