Don’t Be The Drama
I’ve created a new word: Dramatizing
Dramatizing: When an individual puts their own spin on any given situation, thereby creating drama.
Dramatizing occurs when the individual actually believes their perception is reality.
Drama can end up being much worse then trauma because it is largely made up in the mind of the person, whereas trauma is a real thing that can be dealt with.
Whenever you feel dramatized just ask yourself: Is it real? or Is it drama? 99% of the time it is drama, and guess what, 99% of the time it’s NOT ABOUT YOU. Forget about it and move on!
The best defense to dramatizing is knowing how you think and perceive.
And most importantly: Don’t be the drama.
