TIP OF THE DAY
How to Avoid Drama
You have enough to keep you busy—school, work, friends and family. The last thing you need is to deal with drama. Rise above the situation and avoid drama as much as possible with these suggestions.
Step1 Support a friend with a flair for the dramatic, but try not to get involved in every crisis. If you know they just overreacting, allow them to vent, but change the subject to something more positive as soon as you get a chance. If their problem is serious, suggest a guidance counselor.
Step2 Make known your personal problems, fears and desires to only your family members and closest friends. Although it's easy to discuss what's on your mind when someone asks, you run the risk of becoming fodder for the gossip mill if the person isn't trustworthy.
Step3 Resolve conflicts immediately by having a blunt conversation with all of the parties involved. Using a go-between to solve a problem you're having with a friend will only lead to more miscommunication and stress.
Step4 Improve your sense of humor. Staying positive and being able to laugh at situations
Step5 Start spending less time with friends or individuals who thrive on drama.
Step6 Stay out of situations that may get you into trouble or earn yourself a "drama queen" reputation. When a friend tells you a secret, for example, keep it in strict confidence. Try not to vent about your relationships with friends or discuss rumors you've heard about others.
WE ALSO FEATURED:
An interview with members of the Lourier Women’s Support Group in the Retreat and Grassy Park area.
We then played an interview with Anthea Petersen from the Khoisan indigenous women in action.
