Letting Go of Drama
Drama: any situation or series of events having vivid, emotional, conflicting or striking interest or results.
We have so much drama in the world today......sometimes in our family.....sometimes in your relationships......sometimes in our workplace.....there is some kind of drama somewhere around us.
It seems that people love drama and love to incite reactions as much as they can.
I would like to say that when you are involved in any dramatic event .....someone who has issues that bring you on board.......someone who is angry continually and vents so you tune in.......someone who brings constant negativity around you......events that are completely out of your control......this is the time to step back and take issue with what you are allowing into your personal space.
These aspects of life the questions begs to be asked: How did I get here and why do I want to participate?
Living someone else's drama is a choice and one that you must look at in terms of how it is affecting your own life.
- If you are allowing yourself to be caught up in someone else's story what is happening to yours?
- If you are using your focus on someone else's problems big or small how are you taking care of your own well-being?
- If you are using all of your energy to try and figure out solutions for other's issues what is becoming of your own journey?
- If you let your emotions ride someone else's roller coaster where does that leave you emotionally?
The best thing you can do for yourself so that you are on a positive and peaceful path is to choose not to participate in anyone else's drama.
Here are some things that you can choose to not participate in:
Arguments of any kind.
Sad stories told over and over again.
Anything that has to do with the state of the world......country.....city.
The ups and downs of someone else's relationship.
I am sure you have your own experiences which came to mind to add to this list so you know the issues you can choose not to participate in.
Drama is a stress attractor and since this is what you are trying to avoid in life the choice is not to be a part of an on-going drama.
If you are being overly dramatic about something or someone take stock of the situation and ask yourself what you are so emotional about regarding the situation.
- Could you calm down and see it in a different way.
- Can you just let go.
- Can you take it less personally.
Think about not being in a dramatic frame of mind because you can see life so much more clearly when you are not.
I know that reading this several scenarios popped into your mind.......yep......those are the ones you need to let go of and not allow into your day to day thoughts.......those are the ones that are a negative factor and need to be changed so that your life can be as you want it to be without anything holding you back from being as happy as you want to be.
If you wanted to be an actor or actress you would have moved to Hollywood......make sure that the drama in your life is minimal and you choose not to join in the lives of anyone or anything who brings this stressful action around you.
Many Blessings to All
