Everyone’s got some drama.
You do. I do. Everyone on TV has more than their fair share.
And people who are poor, tired, out of shape, and unhappy…they have some too.
Yes, I know I’m walking a fine line here. It’s easy to accuse me of being insensitive. Of saying that people who have challenges are caught up in the drama.
And no, it’s not that simple. Not everyone who has a physical, emotional or financial problem is caught up in drama.
But the reverse is true. Everyone who’s caught up in drama has some manifestation of it. Either physical, emotional or financial.
That’s because drama is basically an unhealthy condition.
Yeah, let’s step back for a second and define our terms.
Drama happens when you experience some kind of conflict in your life, and you want to deflect your responsibility for solving it. So you’ll complain about it to someone. Or you’ll pick a fight with someone, suggesting they are somehow responsible for your problem…and the fixing of it.
Now another person may have indeed helped bring on whatever problem you’ve got going.
But they aren’t living your life. Only you are.
And it’s a pretty safe bet if you’re blaming someone for the condition you’re in, they’re probably not the first person who has done this dastardly thing to you. You are inviting the same set of circumstances into your life by the way you think and act.
And again, that’s OK. We’re all works in progress.
But the drama…that’s holding you back from fixing it.
Because drama is nothing more than a distraction from taking a good, hard look at yourself.
And deciding you’re OK…that you’re worth fixing whatever is going wrong.
And then fixing it…either by changing how you operate, cutting negative people or things out of your life…or both.
The people who fix the problems in their lives usually do it quietly and efficiently. They make decisions, and they stick with them.
And when someone else throws drama at them because they’re no longer playing along, they put distance between them.
They detach from the drama.
And eventually the people you want in your life will stop tolerating your drama.
Yes, that includes your mama.
Got drama? We all do, to a certain extent.
If you want to get well, get strong, find that hottie you can spend a lifetime with, get the bill collectors out of your life…
Do what you gotta do.
And when you find the drama…yours or someone else’s.
Kick it to the curb.
With a smile.
What’s your drama been about?
Are you still holding onto it? Or did you let it go?
Are others trying to get you involved in theirs? How are you handling that?
