A Frank Chat About Toxic Positivity

In a society obsessed with keeping up appearances, constant cheerfulness and 'good vibes' why does it feel like it's getting harder and harder to allow ourselves to have authentic emotional experiences? 

On the show today, we're getting to the bottom of our desperate need to 'fix' our emotions (or maybe just put a bandaid over them) and we'll discuss why toxic positivity won't actually make you happy.
