My wife and I are great friends with a couple named Joe and Beth Terranova who have three daughters.
The oldest is named Brittany who has a real gift as an actor. She recently was in a theatre production in Southern Pines NC called Shakespeare in the Pines Festival.
When you go to the theatre you expect to see DRAMA played out by talented actors like Brittany and others. When you interact with people at work, home, or heaven forbid at church encountering DRAMA is not a pleasurable event.
Many people don’t realize that DRAMA is a habit. Habits have to be learned. Most people get sucked into DRAMA when they begin to feel that the world is ganging up on them. They have a low self esteem of themselves and that is fertile ground for DRAMA.
When you get to feeling like the entire world is out to screw you begin to be attracted to the wrong things. Low self-esteem gets someone drawn to DRAMA like a bee to honey.
The sad thing is that DRAMA is mentally and emotionally taxing. It is not like going to the theatre. When you got to see a play you walk out and its over. When you perpetuate the habit of DRAMA it is back the next day unless you take some steps to prevent that.
I am not sure I have ever seen someone advance their life forward because of adding more DRAMA to it.
The habit of DRAMA can be broken but some key things need to occur.
- Letting go of what others may be thinking or saying about you. You are focused on the wrong thing-WHAT DO you say and think about yourself.
- What people say and think about you can cause you pain that is why you need to love yourself.
- Eliminate or minimize exposure to other DRAMA Kings or Queens. Remember DRAMA is a habit and you are not the only one battling that. You can’t fix others but you can minimize your exposure to those that have the habit. You know the people who are always gossiping and stirring the pot. Get them out of your life.
- You do not need the approval of others to feel good about yourself-trying to please others that are in DRAMA mode means they want you to carry their negative load on your back. That is not your cross to bear.
DRAMA is great in the theatre but not in real life. Don’t sign up for any auditions.
