Galatians 5:15 says” But if you bite and devour one another, watch out that you are not consumed by one another.
Drama! When you think of drama we think of a play for theater, radio, or television: But the drama I am talking about is the drama that people cause. Yes, you’ve heard the term “she is a drama queen.” According to Webster’s it’s an exciting, emotional, or unexpected series of events or set of circumstances: People who live in the drama realm always have something going on.
Let’s be honest shall we, we all have created drama, rather we are honest with ourselves or not. But I will say this if you are not creating drama then you are inviting drama or you’re hanging out with drama. Because drama does not just show up at your doorstep.
A person who lives for drama will want to bring you into their drama. They will test to see if you will bite the hook. Most of the time drama comes with gossip. And who doesn’t like to hear a juicy story? See, drama knows which buttons to push to get a reaction out of you.
Drama also knows when they come face to face with an individual who will not out up with their nonsense too. They know that this drama’s free person is not up for their foolishness, and when they cannot get that person to take part of it they will spread gossip about them. Saying things like I do not like that person to others, naturally this will cause the others to ask the question why?
Now before you know it the drama queen has started a ripple effect of chaos. Often those who created the drama are completely blind to the fact that they cause chaos. They see you as the problem and not themselves.
The question is how do you avoid a person who lives in drama constantly? The best way to avoid a drama person from pulling you into their drama is to not get caught up in it from the start. And how you do that is recognize it for what it is, drama.
A person who constantly has events happening in their lives, most of what they are telling you is not true. Drama people tend to elaborate their stories so that they can be the center of attention. Maybe you have a friend who always has some type of drama happening in their lives, how do you handle that person? Without getting caught up in the drama. It’s hard when the person is close to you, but it can be done. You must set boundaries with them, be honest with them tell them how you feel and if they are a close to you as you say they are they will understand they may not like what you have to say but honesty is always the best way to go.
I don’t believe that a person wakes up and says what drama will I start today, I do believe that when a person is not happy, they make up stories so people can think that they are happy.

Thank you, Desi, I needed this one! 🤗
Hey Wendy, you are welcome. We all need it. It’s just that not everyone is willing to admit it.
