exaggeration: a statement that represents something as better or worse than it really is.
When you speak or share the truth about the painful hurting situation of your life, some friends & family assume and judge you by saying you’re exaggerating the situation. My question is if you are not walking in my shoes how do you judge me for exaggerating my fears insecurities, doubts & struggles that I face in my daily life. You are physically, emotionally, and mentally away then how do you see, sense, or feel my pain and mental trauma that I am living with.
It’s easy to have a opinion but the person who is going through the painful situation can only feel the pain, anxiety, and fear of the unknown. Others can listen, can judge and give opinions but in reality no one understands the others daily struggles. (at physical, emotional and mental levels) Be genuine. Be compassionate. Be empathic. Don’t listen to someone for always giving them opinions and advice and judgement but listen because someone wants to be heard and understood without being judged.
