Some never graduate from high school.
They will constantly cry over spilled milk and draw as many of their friends as they possibly can into their drama-fueled vortex.
So often, we are blind to the challenges that others face. Comparison is unhelpful, but while you’re crying about a scratch on your Beemer, someone else is getting the news from their doctor that they have cancer.
The question is whether to remain in the drama. And the answer may not be forthcoming until we understand the consequences of a life consumed by “who said what” and “who did that.”
Drama is largely self-inflicted. We all feel emotions, but we also have the choice of what to do with those emotions.Drama is largely self-inflicted. We all feel emotions, but we also have the choice of what to do with those emotions. Click To Tweet
In this video, I share about the dangers of being addicted to drama.
Drama is one of those addictions that holds you back.
You are free to go and enjoy drama if that’s what you want to do. It’s just not going to lead to a stable life, conducive to lasting relationships and personal achievement.
People so often say:
- I want to write a book, or
- I want to start a business, or
- I want to become an athlete, or
- I want to become a model
But because they focus so much on the drama, and because they’re so addicted to it, they get into horrible relationships, and then they have friends who also like drama, and before long, they form a drama addicts anonymous group that ends up feeding the monster…
So, you end up in a constant roller-coaster ride that doesn’t support you achieving any of your ambitions.
The test of stability is not whether your life is stable. There will always be things you can’t control.
The test of stability is whether you can maintain emotional evenness even as the world is storming around you.The test of stability is whether you can maintain emotional evenness even as the world is storming around you. Click To Tweet
