I could say no more than "Good morning, Loki, how are you today?" and everyone would bitch, saying I'm e-stalking her.
Actually, that's pretty much how it goes down, now.
So YES you need to stop over-exaggerating and YES you need to lighten up.
That goes for everyone else, too.
For as often as everyone tells everyone to not take things so seriously, nobody seems to follow the advice. Even if they had previously said it before.
I'm guilty of it, too.
