things I need to fix about myself #138

For the most part, I try to be honest, but in conversation, I have an irritating tendency to drift into hyperbole, often without any obvious cue to the listener, which makes it even worse. My regret is instantaneous, but I hate to weigh down a conversation with repeated explanations of "obviously I'm exaggerating." This is one of many reasons why I prefer to avoid arguments, because it really comes out when I'm feeling defensive.
