People who are toxically positive don’t limit this approach as the right way to live their lives;

Toxic positivity tsunamis into their business and personal relationships with others.

Let me be very blunt here: People with disabilities are getting EFFED over in the current Coronavirus driven environment.

No lemonade, all lemons.
