Here’s one of those words that carries huge pain and loss with it, but is often used these days to describe something as insignificant as a bad hair day.
“Wait!” you say. “A bad hair day IS a disaster.”

I try to help my clients use appropriate words to describe their difficulties. Using superlatives like horrible, awful, disastrous, to describe the events of every-day life leads to a sense of hopelessness and helplessness.
A disaster is something you do not want, can not prevent, and that has the power of destruction and death.
A bad hair day really doesn’t measure up 🙂
