There are some people, that it seems like, can not be without drama. Now, there are different levels of drama, different ways we create and invite drama into our life. Life in itself will give you enough reasons to have concerns such as having your health compromised or a family member who is ill, among other things. It is not good for your well-being to create nor invite drama into your life.
First, I would like to start off by defining the word drama. Drama is any unnecessary situation or person who adds unnecessary stress to you. There are many ways we create and invite drama into our life and many times we are not aware that we are doing this. I believe that the reason why we are not aware of this is because we are not aware of any needs that need to be met, of any issues that need to be resolved, or, we’re probably bored with our life and not realize it. Whatever it is, it is very important to understand why you feel the need to create this drama. The best way to have that life that you want is by knowing and understanding yourself.
How do we create or allow drama into our life and not realize it? I will share a perfect example that hits home for me because this is what I did for several years. For quite some time I longed companionship. Nothing wrong with wanting companionship except that I allowed this need to be so strong that I allowed guys into my life that were no good for me, thus creating drama into my life. This is just one of the many examples of how we can create or allow drama into our life because of “needs” that we have not met.
What this unnecessary drama does to you is that it impedes your overall well-being. It distracts you from all the good that you have going for you. It robs your energy- energy that you can utilize to focus on more positive and productive things. Like I said earlier, life will give you enough reasons to have concerns and worries. You don’t need to add to them. Focus on the things that work for you. Focus on the things that matter most- YOU and your loved ones and the things that make your heart jump for joy.
How can we eliminate some of this drama out of our life? I’m going to sound like a broken record but the best way to deal with any of the issues, conflicts, needs, voids, etc, in our life is by working from within. The best work you will ever do is working with yourself, to understand yourself. I believe this is the root cause to lots of things that happen in our life. Therefore, if you notice so much drama in your life, ask yourself why.
