There are many choices we make which can bring us value but when they are 'exaggerated' they bring harm. Some examples include:
Exercise, which is scientifically validated to be good for the body, but 'exaggerated' exercise can and does deplete the body.
Food, properly approached, is to support and sustain a healthy body but 'exaggerated' eating - too much or far too little - does the opposite.
Physical appearance. There is a strong association between good health and looking like one is in good health - straight teeth, acne-free skin, thick, beautiful hair, muscles, etc., - but 'exaggerated' value prompts some to misuse and abuse the body injecting it with chemicals to create a "look" or appearance.
Possessions. There's nothing wrong with wealth and having fine things - auto, home, furnishings, clothing, etc. Many kings, queens and other prosperous people gained enlightenment. But, when there is an 'exaggerated' sense of possessions, ego and grasping become a dominant life theme.
Self-esteem. No one could argue that it isn't good and psychologically healthy to have self-confidence and a positive view of oneself. However, when this becomes an 'exaggerated' value one can become conceited, arrogant, condescending toward others.
From time to time, it can be a good spiritual exercise to do a quick self-inventory to make certain we're not exaggerating the value of good things.
