Let's be for real here.
Do you feel like your life is always full of drama?
Friends, family, co-workers drag you into the drama and before you know everyone is pissed at you? There is a reason why this drama follows you continuously.
Consider this...... just for a second. Consider maybe YOU are bringing the drama or you ARE the drama to each of these situations. Yes, this is a hard pill to swallow BUT, if you are seriously trying to avoid drama then you would.
* You wouldn't partake in the trash talking and spreading of rumors.
* You would avoid the back stabbing and hurtful comments of others.
* True friends wouldn't drag you into their mess in the first place.
* You would set boundaries for yourself to avoid the drama.
* You would shut it down before it even started.
Maybe you don't even realize you are doing it. It is just what you have always done. So, consider this. If you want the drama to stop then put your foot down and set some boundaries and have others (and yourself) stick to them.
If Sara and Suzie don't like each other and Suzie comes into the break room complaining about Sara and calling her names and just being mean.
If you participate in the conversation about Sara, you are bringing the drama. If you repeat what Suzie was saying about Sara to someone else, you are bringing the drama.
If you tell Sara that Suzie was talking about her than, yes you are bringing the drama.
When you put yourself in the middle and then ask yourself "Why am I always dealing with the drama?" You are the drama!!!
If you are listening to the drama.
Participating in spreading the rumors and gossip.
Not setting boundaries to stop the gossip from coming in.
Then you my friend are the drama.
Do you talk about others to make yourself feel better? Is your life so boring you must spread rumors and lies about someone else?
Listen, it is not your place to judge others. You have no idea what it is like to walk in their shoes. Making fun of others in a mean way even as adults is still bullying.
So, maybe take a long hard look at yourself and ask "What can I do to be a better person?" When you start to become a better person the drama will decrease. You will set boundaries that will stop it before it even starts. Love yourself enough to leave the drama OUT of your life.
Yes, shit will still happen but, not as often and you will have a better understanding of yourself to put a end to it.
Keep your peace. You are the only one that can do that for yourself. You have to make the effort to stop the drama.
We are all on the same path. We all want to be loved, our loved ones to be safe and happy, and we all want peace in our lives. Let's give each other a break and return to the love.
Love rules all. :)
