In the last decade there has bee a big emphasis on being positive all the time.
I have had a problem with this and now I am reading articles that agree with me that in some instances being over positive can not be appropriate or even helpful.
How can positivity be extreme you may ask? Positivity has a time and place, and if ill timed or relied on in an inappropriate situation, positivity has the potential to be dangerous.
However it can be harmful to relationships, particularly when a person is struggling and their partner pushes them to “look on the bright side” without listening to what they are feeling.
What do you think? So are ok when someone tells you to look at what you have and not to complain?
Or do you find when you are telling people how you are feeling that they don’t listen and tell you to be grateful, that you get annoyed.
Let me know what you think.
Is there a time and place for positivity?
