In this episode, we discuss the tension between acceptance and toxic positivity. I asked ChatGPT to create a summary of this episode and here is what it came up with:

In this episode, the host discusses the concept of toxic positivity and its relation to growth and acceptance. Toxic positivity is the idea that one should not try to frame things in a positive way when things are not going well, and instead should aim to access a spectrum of emotions. While there is a lesson of acceptance in toxic positivity, it can also be misused to disguise apathy as acceptance, which can lead to a lack of aliveness and hopelessness. Acceptance, on the other hand, is the foundation of emotional intelligence and involves recognizing what is happening in the moment while also having hope for the future.

I must say it is quite impressive save a few nuances. Listen to the episode to catch them!
