Donna, what if I told you that your every conflict, disappointment, struggle or challenge, with others or yourself, was merely a manifestation of what’s going on within your own thinking… would you go there first to fix, mend, and allay?
Yeah, you might miss the drama.
This was my morning message from the Universe today :) Fairly appropriate at this point in my life.
Trying to avoid drama at all costs, is sometimes hard for me. I have no filter, as you all know. So sometimes when something is put in front of me, I have a hard time not reacting.
I am a mother, so I understand the fact that sometimes, people want a response, positive or negative. People that thrive on drama don’t care if it is good or bad attention, as long as they get some.
I also know blogging about it, may be doing just that. My point today is this, no matter what my initial reaction was, or how it made me feel, it was my stuff. I can’t control what other people do or how they act, good or bad. But I can certainly alter my response to it. My reaction will either continue the drama on, or put an end to it.
No one wants to play alone. The game just doesn’t have the same effect. Does it?
So from now on, I choose to walk away. To hold my ground, and have integrity. It won’t always be easy. And some days, I know I will still be tempted to react, but I already feel less stressed, and happier just making the decision. Life is too short to play games, and I am just not feeling it.
So if you are out there, and are trying to get a response from me, good or bad…and it is a game you know I don’t want to play, please stop. Find someone else to get a rise out of. There are lots of people out there that are willing to enter into it…
I am just not one of them anymore.
Happy Tuesday friends xoxo
