Encouragement Culture vs. Toxic Positivity



Encouragement Culture


+ Leaves margin for healing/crying/being still

+ Mourns with those who mourn

+ Acknowledges the difficulty of a situation & sits with the discomfort

+ Gives grace over advice

+ Points toward a bedrock of truth that fosters peace


Toxic Positivity


+ Breezes past signs of impending burnout

+ Rush to "get over it" mentality

+ Out of touch, upbeat remarks on serious situations

+ Lacking in humility

+ Fixates on worth being found in productivity & goals


Peace,

Lo
