    Seriously, I'm done with the drama thing. Other people may thrive on it, but I do not. I no longer buy into the theatrics of others and that hasn't always made me a popular person. It took me many years to realize that we only have to be true to ourself. Other people can take care of themselves. Happiest of days!!

    This is so, so true. I've been working on this for the past year or so and it has made a HUGE difference my outlook on life and really decreased my stress levels! No drama for this Sparker!

    I love this suggestion, it is something to keep in mind everytime that person starts talking and carrying on about "oh poor me". Thanks for this one1

    i am working on this one.. i have a daughter who is a real drama queen.. there are many reason why she is that way..but she wont be honest with her doctor on it or herself.. and my life is draining away in the guilt of hers.. there are so many times why i wonder why i bother.. except i love my granchildren.. and would die with out them in my life. and she has threatened me many times on taking them out of my life..
i try.

    I have been living this for several years and it has made ALL the difference! Even my kids know my motto, "drama is for tv, not for life!"
