Using a word to blanket everyone

Recently, I was on Facebook and noticed that someone had posted that "Everyone lies".  Using the word everyone really frustrated me because she was saying that everyone, she knows, doesn't just tell little white lies but outright lies.

If you are upset with individuals, that is one thing, but it is very important that you don't use the word "everyone" when you only mean certain individuals.  It is understandable that you may not want to point fingers and name the individuals but using the word "everyone" is not right.

I know I don't outright lie, so that was frustrating to see that I was considered as someone who did by this person who I thought was a friend.  Yes, people can up upset and be frustrated but saying statements like she did really bother me.  If you are upset, take some time, and think before you post something on Facebook or any other social media because remember, once you have said it, it's out there.

Remember if you are going to paint everyone with a single brush remember that you are going to greatly affect how people think of you.
