Drama Junkie


“Drama does not just walk into your life. You either create it, invite it, or you associate with people who love to bring it into your life.”

If there is drama in various areas of your life, be honest with yourself – you are the constant. Are you creating it? We do not do anything repeatedly unless there is something in it for us, so, what is the payoff?

Are you looking for attention or excitement? Did you grow up with drama and you just plain feel best when there is some around you? If you are looking for attention, can you get it more directly? If you are bored, what new adventure can create in your life?

If someone frequently comes to you with catastrophes, give yourself a window of time when you will listen, and then take care of your own needs by walking away. Also, resist the urge to jump into a pity party.

A lot of drama comes from poor communication and confusion. Eliminate it by having the courage to say exactly what you mean. It may be harder in the moment, but it can save a lot of heartache in the long run.

Life will always involve ‘mini’ dramas. But you can learn not to ‘blow them up’, by letting drama to take a back seat in your life. You will find more peace and calm, as the adrenaline is no longer as important. Focus on how you can improve your life.

Are you are drama junkie?

“Free yourself from the complexities and drama of your life. Simplify. Look within. Within ourselves we all have the gifts and talents we need to fulfill the purpose we’ve been blessed with.”
Steve Maraboli
