Smiles in Context

Positive psychology has been criticized for overemphasizing the potential of individuals to transcend their circumstances. But not every life context affords the same opportunities for flourishing. The promise ‘smile, think positive thoughts, and you will be happy and healthy’ underestimates the importance of social context for psychological well-being and health.

– James Coyne, “Self-Help for the Affluent “

May you be free from suffering and the causes of suffering!

All my best,
