It's all about the DRAMA

Do you know someone who thrives off of DRAMA?  Someone who thinks the world revolves around them and no one else?  Someone who when they enter a room causes instant expectation of stress to come, from those who know them?  I am reading a book by Jan Silvious called  Same Life New Story (that I will blog about as soon as I finish), and one of the chapters deals with DRAMA.  This is not unexpected things that happen in your life where you do have temporary drama, but constant, ongoing, daily thriving off of DRAMA.  I am around one of those types of people on an almost daily basis. If I know this person is not going to be around me for a while, I experience such relief.  When I know they will be around, I tense up.  In fact, I have found myself starting to respond in kind with this person.  At times I allow this person to cause me to lose my temper with them.  I have probably become an enabler to this person.  One of the things Mrs. Silvious stresses in her book is that you let this person go.  You let them know that you are not going to be stressed by them, or participate in their drama anymore.  Sometimes that's kind of hard to do!  Maybe I should check out and cut out the drama in my own life...
