“You always throw things back in my face.”

“You never ask me how I’m doing.”
“My car is never going to get washed.”
“I never think before I speak.”
“I always embarrass myself.”
Even though we may feel that these “always” and “never” statements are really true… They are “never” completely true. See what I did there? Are you going to let me get away with that?
They are off limits in fair fighting – and should be off limits when you are thinking (aka- talking to yourself). These thoughts “always” make you feel more strongly emotional (I keep doing it! Always? Really?) 
….and they just flat aren’t true.
(All of the earlier examples are from my own brain. It is a struggle to capture these thoughts!)
