X is for Xaggerate

X means to multiply; to xaggerate.

“I’ve got thousands of emails.” We overstate facts and take a truth out of proportion.

Do we exaggerate to:

  • emphasize a point
  • gain sympathy or attention
  • appear more interesting

Exaggerate too much, too often, and:

  • you make things bigger than they are
  • people trust you less
  • you lose credibility

Exaggeration can be useful to relieve stress and be humourous.
So, save exaggeration for when it is required, otherwise, stop!
See the reality as it is. Be accurate.

Accentuate, not exaggerate. Magnify what’s best.
