How Much Drama is in Your Life?


Have you ever been around people whose lives always seemed to be filled with drama? Be honest. Are you one of those people? I am not talking about dealing with grief or tragedy. Those are different circumstances where drama is present and can’t be avoided. That is not what I am referring to here. What I am talking about are people who live and thrive with drama constantly in their lives.

They seem to need it. It is as if they have made it their identity. They wouldn’t know what do without it in their daily lives.

Who Needs Drama?

Of course, a lot of drama can exist when you live with a house full of people. But, even those that live alone can create their own drama. They do it when they feel sorry for themselves, feel guilty or anxious. That’s drama! It’s what they are creating in their minds.

Who lets drama become part of who they are? It is those who have been conditioned to “make a mountain out of a molehill.” Every experience for them needs to be filled with something that drags on and needs repeating. They love to talk about everyone else’s experiences as well and tell others about themselves. This is a form of gossip.

But, it’s these things that make them thrive. Could it be that they are so far out of touch with their own lives that they feel they must live theirs through others experiences? Or is it that they haven’t learned how to cope with their own emotions?

I believe that there comes a time when people get tired of drama. They get fed-up with it from others and from themselves.

It tends to happen when someone or you realize that you are not really living consciously and not living in peace. Often times it takes tragedy or a major event in life that bring you to this realization. It’s during those times that you desire change or transformation.

What’s Your Drama?

If you begin to become aware of this in your live it is then that you can begin to change. All of us must learn to accept the things that we can’t control. This was a necessary step in my recovery after the death of my former husband. I had to accept that he died by suicide and I wasn’t the one to blame. Mine is an extreme example but it was the catalyst to my transformation.  

On a smaller scale we must accept many minor adversities in life, such as missing a train or bus or missing a store-sale. These are not life threatening situations and don’t impact us in the long run. Yet often times we can make drama out of them.

Have you asked yourself lately whether you create too much drama in your life? If you believe that you have and are tired of it then you can begin to change. Don’t wait for a tragedy to occur. Realize that drama is robbing you of your inner peace and the ability to live in the NOW.

The choice is really yours. Only you can begin the process of self-awareness. Once you do, then drama will no longer appeal to you and you will discover that you won’t want to be in the presence of others who constantly live with it in their lives.
