Toxic Positivity Vs Real Empathy

Toxic Positivity Vs Real Empathy

Toxic Positivity

  • “You’ll get over it!”
  • “Other people have it worse!”
  • “Just stay positive!”
  • “Don’t worry, be happy!”

Real Empathy

  1. “It will feel better eventually, but I know things are hard rightnow.”
  2. “Just because someone else has it worse doesn’t make your pain hurt any less.”
  3. “It’s normal to feel upset right now.”
  4. “Your emotions can’t just be switched on and off. Take the time you need to work through them.”
