Do you remember high school? If your high school experience was anything like mine, it was full of drama. As it turns out, working in a high school is equally, if not more, dramatic.
Me? I like to think of myself as someone who is not dramatic. I don't deal well with drama. I find it annoying and something that petty, lazy people use as a distraction from real work. I think it's a big, fat time waster and the people who allow themselves to get sucked into it are only making life harder on themselves. Even outside of work and in the relationship sphere, my patience for drama is absolutely nil. Head games do not work for me. If someone I know is being dramatic, I will call them on it--something that gets me in trouble, as dramatic people do NOT like to be called out on their drama.
Life is too short to get caught up in that crap. Not only that, but my year as a VISTA is such a small, condensed amount of time, and as such I try to avoid the people who are always at the epicenter of the drama because I know they are like tornados, sucking in everything in their periphery. I can't think of any other way to deal with it.
Do you have life drama? How do you deal with it?? Help a girl out, because I feel like I am drowning in BS.
