At 30 years old I can honestly say that I have lived a joyous life. Granted, there has been some bumps in the road as I journeyed through the labyrinth of life but so far so good…I’ve made out pretty well. With that being said, I realize that the older I get the less tolerance I have for B*llsh*t, Fuckery, Foolishness, etc. Dare I say….DRAMA. With this realization is the fact that there are a lot of folks out there who profess to be on the same wavelength. Quite frankly, they are far from it and are drama personified.
I am sure that at least once in your adult life you have heard a fellow adult rant
beating their chest about how they don’t do drama and refuse to get involved. These are the ones who tend to speak real loud and when you approach them on a situation they start stomping like they are big foot a 2-year-old in the throws of a tantrum and acting a fool proclaiming, “I am too old for drama and don’t have time.” Sound familiar? Yeah I’ve heard it too. The irony of the situation is that if it were up to you things would be handled in a civilized manner like the adult that you are yet they insist in engaging in a shouting match which is dramatic in itself.
According to Webster’s New Pocket Dictionary, drama is defined as 1)a play 2) art of writing and staging plays. That really isn’t t the type of drama that I am referring to although at times it sure does feel like it. To understand the type of drama that I am referring to, one can not obtain the definition from any ordinary dictionary. Rather we need to pull the definition straight out of a dictionary that specializes in slang. According to the online slang dictionary drama is defined as, a constant source of interpersonal conflict. Funny that they would use the word interpersonal conflict. More often than not there is really no interpersonal conflict at all. More like a personal conflict that they can’t seem to handle so they take it out on someone else. Sounds like a soap opera doesn’t it.
These people who state that they don’t do drama are a farce to society. Not only do they do drama. They more or less are the ones who actually started the drama. Go figure, they don’t see it like that and have created this bubble filled world with the notion that everyone is a drama queen/king except for them. Missed by them is the fact the other individual could really care less about them or the situation. In reality, there really isn’t any drama. It’s more like the dramatic individual lacks attention in their bubble and needs some interaction with the real world. What better way to ensure it than to start drama.
When I say that I don’t do drama I speak the truth. As a LEO, the only thing more important than me is God. Everyone comes secondary. I find no thrill in involving myself in people’s need for negative attention. It’s not my fault that they have issues with themselves and/or situation. In case they don’t know, there is an app for that. On that note, bird is the word and that is how I feel about drama.
