Hmmm. Something I had considered until I read this article: “Most people were trying to just get through each day without crying or experiencing debilitating anxiety or depression, only to go on social media and see messages telling them to ‘just be positive’.”

I actually feel pretty conflicted on this topic. Like, I agree that “toxic positivity” is real, but I hesitate to agree that being positive about things (which is only discussed generally in the article) is a way for people to “avoid uncertainty.” I also don’t think positivity and “‘flex culture’” are that compatible going into 2022—maybe in 2015. Now, cynicism & negativity are just as trendy as unbridled optimism. I think it can be a really *positive* trait to, say, make fun of instagram celebs, especially for how the may glorify things like poverty, anxiety, and depression. I think that having a critical mindset overall can be a positive expression, and hope that people are becoming more in touch with themselves than this author assume. Maybe I’m totally off base though… down to hear your thoughts too [@jonomilo](/user/profile/jonomilo)
