The Big 150: 10, Relationships - What kind of drama do you sometimes get caught up in?
The Big 150: 10, Relationships - What kind of drama do you sometimes get caught up in? What can you do to rise above it?
Ah, drama. I admit that there’s a certain amount of drama I’ll entertain as long as I can be on the outside looking in, but in terms of drama in my own life, I do my utmost to not participate. I am very protective of my personal peace and sense of calm, so I’m very happy to cut out whatever it is that tries to disrupt it. Boundaries are your friend (she shouts from the rooftops)!
But as I am a human, I do like some drama. I used to really enjoy The Bachelorette, though to be honest, I haven’t watched it in years. And when I lived in Ireland, I truly loved watching 'Love Island UK’ and talking about it with my fellow Masters. It’s been years at this point, and I’m still flabbergasted over the fact that Anton let his mom shave his butt.
As I already don’t allow a lot of drama into my personal life, I don’t know if I’m really into the idea of rising above my incredibly infrequent but beloved viewing of reality TV. I think as humans we sometimes need a little downtime to zone out from the stresses of our own lives, so I don’t really see the harm in tuning into someone else’s televised drama (in moderation). Now I’m not a #TeamThisPerson or #TeamThatPerson type of viewer, but #TeamJacob, #TeamRon, and #TeamMcDreamy forever. Just kidding. The only hashtag that ever mattered was #Slytherin.
Is there a lesson for today? Yes, I’m sure of it! If there’s drama in your personal life and you can do something about it, great! Do it! If there’s drama in your personal life and you can’t do anything about it then maybe it’s time to let it go or move on. Whether that means figuring out a way to be at peace with it or figuring out a way to cut it out of your life is totally your decision. You do you.
To Love Island UK and finding peace in your everyday,
