Step out of your Soap Opera, live in the world…

So yesterday I was venting about an exchange that really annoyed me and after painting an epic narrative about how “wronged” and “scorned” and “maligned” (did she just say maligned? She did) My friend very calmly smiled and said, So what actually happened? I had to laugh and then go back through the events and realize how absolutely ridiculous and over the top my reaction to something so casual turned out to be.

There are real insults to be sure, but the ones we dream up are 10 times worse than anyone could ever deliver. So I say again, step out of your own personal soap opera and look at what is REALLY going on.

Do you live in the real world most of the time or do you also invent epic scenarios?

Or is it just me? 🙂
