Sarah Schuster writes about toxic positivity, including her take for how Brené Brown describes empathy. Sarah concludes:

“If sympathy is shouting down at someone while they’re stuck in a hole, empathy is getting into the hole with them. If ‘toxic positivity’ is telling someone to just “look at the bright side,” support is putting yourself in someone’s shoes, and accepting their feelings for what they are.”
