Who comes to mind when you think about someone surrounding themself with drama?

No matter what they do, they always seem to be involved in some sort of drama.

Is that person you?

Be honest with yourself.

It is okay to be that person, and it is also not too late to make changes in order to not be that person.

What kind of drama is in your everyday life?

Is there a way to resolve those issues so that they don’t affect your daily life?

We all have some sort of drama in our lives.

It’s a matter of how we handle it and deal with it that makes the difference.

How many times have you heard someone say–I don’t want any drama in my life.

That is a very trendy term right now and if you or someone you know is single and dating–that is tossed around like please and thank you!

Everyone claims to hate drama but somehow we find ourselves in it way too often.

Some of us are drama junkies and thrive for it as it gives us a sense of importance.

Some of us create it and then swoop in as the savior to “fix” whatever caused it.

How would you like to learn how to navigate through drama with ease?

What is drama?

It is defined as a situation that involves conflict leading to a climax.

Wow.

Does that change your view of drama already?

We all know someone who seems to attract drama.

Usually these people don’t really want that in their lives but due to some underlying trauma they have experienced in the past, the drama is like a comfortable place for them.

They relive the trauma over and over through drama filled episodes and some of us get caught in it again and again.

Drama in adults can be compared to the terrible twos.

Some toddlers haven’t developed their communication skills when dealing with conflict and will typically act out with a temper tantrum.

Imagine an adult who is unable to regulate their emotions and handle conflict and they act out with an adult temper tantrum that may include backstabbing, gossiping, and verbal abuse.

Drama exists in the movies for a reason–it is entertaining.

It gives us a distraction momentarily.

We are attracted to drama in the movies much like we are attracted to it in the real world even if we claim we aren’t.

Drama is caused by a distorted thought.

We always have the option, the choice, to engage or disengage in the events about to unfold.

Stay away from distorted thinking and distorted thinkers is a start.

If you don’t feed the beast, it will go somewhere else to eat.

When someone is unloading on you, listen.

Just listen.

They are looking for an ear not your opinion.

This will keep you from engaging in the situation, which can escalate the problem.

Don’t talk.

Don’t discuss.

Don’t look for a solution.

Let the energy die down before engaging in any conversation.

Think of someone that seems to thrive on drama or is always involved in it somehow.

Is that person you?

Is it someone you are close with?

What can you do in your own life in order to minimize the drama?

What can you do in order to avoid the unnecessary distractions that are always being thrown your way?

Don’t give in to the drama.

Even though it may be entertaining for a few moments.

It will not be worth it once it has passed.

Rid yourself of the extra worries unless they seriously affect you or your family!

YOU decide and YOU can make those positive changes for yourself.

Today is the day to put the bullshit aside and focus on what really matters.
