Don’t Exaggerate



“We exaggerate

misfortune and happiness


We are never

as bad off or as happy as

we say we are.”


~ Honore De Balzac



Why exaggerate ? ? ?

Why not just be content with the middle of the road.

No one ever believes your laments of melancholy misery

or your over emoted spasms of ecstatic exuberance


Yes, we do those things to elicit sympathy or

to have other people leaveĀ us alone.

Today, be happy, don’t exaggerate,

tell the truth about how you feel.

Happiness is never having to exaggerate.

Happiness is helping someone help themselves.
