Let’s face it, we all know at least one drama queen who is an energy zapper! I’m not talking about people in the performing arts. I am referring to the dear souls that feel out of sorts unless chaos and mayhem are swirling around their feet. They carry their own personal tornado where ever they go, unbeknownst to those who unwittingly open the door to the torrential down pour that follows!
Depicted on sitcoms, they often get a chuckle out of us, but truth be told they aren’t so funny. The problem with these attention grabbers is the magnitude of wasted energy. Imagine if the energy spent on the sheer flare for the dramatic was funneled into something important like ending world hunger!
Drama queens thrive on the adrenaline of their current “story” and don’t seem to know how to channel their focus elsewhere. And just imagine the ineffectiveness of entrepreneurs with this tendency.
I guess most of us could be accused of being a drama queen if the right scenario warranted. Yet, I'd rather leverage drama, or any other capacity I might have in the most effect way possible. How about you? I have two tips for serial drama queens.
Tips Concerning Drama Queens
1. When dealing with an energy exasperating drama queen, boundaries are not an option. They are a necessity! I know some of you think boundaries are a four letter word. However, there is no Mother Teresa award for being pulled under by the riptide of dramatic chaos. Drama Queens will suck your tank dry if you allow. You can’t fix a drama queen! They must want to help themselves.
2. If you are a drama queen first of all we want you to know that we love you. But please do everyone a favor by making the important choice to abstain from the merry-go-round, and become intentional about rehabilitation. Believe it or not, you can learn to say “No” to the drama!
Our suggestion: put in place a support system that will hold you accountable and help you tap into peace, and a drama free life.
Remember healthy people press into the discomfort of change, because they choose the benefit of growth. So if you’re one of our beloved drama queens we suggest you invest your energy in starting a foundation for a drama free life, get some help, and turn up the music and sing the theme song, No More Drama.
