Ways To Break Addiction To Drama
November 03, 2011
We’re all familiar with the drama played out in TV reality shows or on the pages of gossip magazines. For a lot of people, this is a source of entertainment. Many likely have the perception that this type of drama only happens on TV or in Hollywood. To a certain extent, these people might be right. The extreme drama doesn’t necessarily occur in everyday life. However, basic drama is a lot more commonplace than you might think. Let’s look at a few scenarios of how this occurs in everyday life:
Everything is going well in your relationship. You tell yourself that this has to be too good to be true. You start to doubt things. Then without any reason, you decide to pick a fight with your partner over something totally stupid. His reaction then reinforces your notion that something has to be wrong, and he’s not Mr. Perfect after all. You wonder why you try to sabotage things, but just don’t seem to be able to break the cycle.
You set your alarm clock an extra few minutes ahead of time to get you out the door punctually. Or you saw your meeting reminder pop up 15 minutes before the meeting and have plenty of time to get moving. However, as usual, you’re late. You make an entrance and disrupt those around you and give some excuse as to why you were late. People secretly feel disgruntled by your bringing attention to yourself, but you don’t realize this. You hope to understand why you just can’t be on time.
