Drama stinks and most people think once you’ve finished high school, you are done with drama. If you believe it ends when you graduate, you are sadly mistaken. Drama will follow you all over the place, even when you are older.
Drama is extremely unhealthy. It increases stress levels, ruins friendships, and completely wastes our time, which is something we don’t have a lot of. It is time to learn how to avoid drama and make your life easier.
When avoiding drama in your life you need to make no more assumptions.This is usually the source of the drama and if you can eliminate the source, you can eliminate the drama before it starts. If someone does something that you don’t like, don’t go making things up about why they did it and start telling people. Now you have just wasted yours and someone else’s time and caused some drama. Not good. Try to catch yourself doing this and stop it. You will begin to notice a more drama free life.
Now, don’t believe everything you hear either.I think that this is probably the biggest reason for drama. People could be making something up or it could get passed along wrongly. By that I mean the story could be getting a little bit messed up as it is passed on from person to person. Some people may remember it wrong, or add something into it, or they might just be completely wrong. Don’t pass a long anything that you don’t know is completely true. You are just adding to the fire if you do that.
Talk directly to the person you have a problem with.The reason why drama happens more in high school than it does in the adult world is because people aren’t direct. If you have a problem with someone or someone has a problem with you, find them and try to resolve the issue. This will help cut down the drama. It won’t completely get rid of the drama, but it will definitely help.
Don’t retaliate.It can be hard not to when someone is off spewing rumors about you that aren’t true, but you need to be the bigger person and let things go if you are going to avoid drama. It might make you feel a little bit better if you went off on a rumor rampage, but it will just make everything worse in the long run. Be sure you just let this stuff go and you will live a drama free life.
The best way to avoid drama is to avoid the people who gossip the most.Some people basically love to spread around rumors and create drama for people. These are the people that you want to stop interacting with because they will be the ones sucking you into a drama filled life. Avoiding them can be pretty easy if you aren’t really close to them, but if you close to them it can be kind of hard. If you are close to someone that likes to spread drama and you don’t want to eliminate them from your life just tell them that you don’t really care about what other people are saying or doing. Tell them that you want nothing to do with drama.
By following these tips I can assure you that you will be living a more drama free life than you are now. Forget the stress and lost relationships in high school, you don’t have to worry about these any longer.
