On the lighter side.
We all run into situations when someone seems to overreact to a given circumstance. Something that seems to get blown out of proportion, someone gets a little too excited.
A few idioms then, to help communicate this very common human experience.
In English there are several phrases that come to mind…
“Don’t get your panties in a bunch!” or “You’re making a mountain out of a mole hill.”
But what about other languages? Here are a couple of samples.
In Russian they say the equivalent of, “You’re making an elephant from a fly.”
In Spanish they say, “You’re making a storm in a glass of water.”
So whatever the language, it’s pretty clear that we humans overreact sometime. When it’s your turn, remind yourself of this post.
