Human emotions are nice, not nice, impersonal, personal, all kinds, thousand kinds. When your emotional system is screwed up, you tend to over expand all emotions. Nice becomes wonderful, not nice becomes horrible or deathly, impersonal becomes ‘i am not liked by this person’, personal becomes ‘this person loves me’.
Over dramatisation. The tendency to blow things out of proportion is something that every abused victim goes through. Emotional management is thus extremely important to function normally. And you need to work at it, as you would do stomach crunches to get a flat tummy.
