Weird Things We Do That Backfire

  1. Exaggerate others’ weaknesses in order to make ourselves feel better about our own 

              Instead…a) it makes us miserable and, b) causes mature people to avoid us

      2. Exaggerate our accomplishments to make ourselves look better

             Instead…a) we live in fear of being found out and, b) we need drugs or alcohol to get by

       3. Exaggerate our difficulties in order to manipulate others or to sound interesting

            Instead…a) we erode our own power b) sound like a victim, and c) become boring
