The more we take a situation and let our brains run wild with all or nothing, black and white thoughts, the more emotionally reactive we become. When we think in exaggerated ways by using terms like always, never, terrible, worst, terrible, all the time, nobody, everyone etc. we get ourselves more worked up than we need to be had we practiced thinking with more nuance, and in more accurate and responsible ways. This is a skill to learn, and in this talk I teach it to you.
