Drama seems to be the new age favorite pastime. For some people it seems to be their main source of amusement. Those are what we call the ” side-liners “. They are not directly involved, but love to watch the drama unfold as it is happening. Then we have the people who are addicted to drama, they eat, breath and sleep drama. These individuals are what we call ” drama-droids “. At any rate, the drama droids main focus is to start drama with tools like lies, bringing wrong company together in one place,twisting and stretching reality.
The results of bad drama can be devastating to someones life. Some toxic results can be vicious rumors, getting beat-up, jail, getting children taken away… A result of bad drama violence. Your getting the picture.
Being a victim of drama, I have experienced first hand the magnitude of the pain it causes. What disgusts me the most is how some people get off on causing drama to someone… It’s almost as if it’s a tree branch of bullying.
I have come up with some ideas and tips that I have found Dramacool to work for me and others. The foolproof plan is to steer clear of drama all together. But in case you have landed yourself in the drama neverland… Here’s some tips and ideas to get yourself out of it. Stop answering your phone to all involved in the drama. If you can’t avoid talking to them try to change the subject or just play dumb and show no reaction to their drama talk. The less affected you show by it, the less they will be wanting to dish it your way. Don’t offer information to anyone in the drama chain. Avoid talking about the he said she said issues. Don’t confide secrets of any kind to a known drama droid, that’s like posting it on Facebook for all to read. Speaking of Facebook, put all drama droids on your acquaintance list and only to friends and not acquaintances. I have found that to be very effective. Don’t have drama droids or drama side-liners at your home, this is a sure way for drama to get out of control and for the police to possibly be involved. If out in a public place and a drama situation erupts with your friends, try to diffuse the situation by leaving with a friend or two. Try not to play up the drama, the more it’s talked about the more it’s relived. if asked questions about knowledge of a drama episode, just say it wasn’t your business so you didn’t pay attention.
