One of my challenges with faux positivity thinking is that there’s a really thin line between it and gaslighting.
There’s a point when the law of attraction stuff crosses a line into victim-blaming territory that offers simplistic explanations for complex, systemic problems. In this week’s podcast, Relando reflects on toxic positivity and the need for people in our lives who can hold space for a wide variety of emotions.
