Exaggerating your way to death

“This company sucks” usually means: my boss or the two people I work with most are difficult.  It’s not the actual company and its 10,000 employees.  Similarly, “everyone judges me” usually means just a couple people are being critical or judgmental.

If we zero in on the issues and the actual people involved, the problem is less daunting, and we can make simple changes.

Exaggerating is a lazy way to pretend you have no control of a problem.  As hard as things may seem sometimes, it’s doubtful that “everyone” is against you.
