Drama is making your emotions/feelings someone else’s responsibility!
“Do you want to be honest, or do you want to win?
You could have it all if you could gracefully give in
Like when a martyr knows he’s a martyr
And looking in the mirror makes you cry harder
’bout your glittering ball and chain
In love, In love with your
Excuses and old theories repeat themselves and die
But when they don’t hold water
You try to keep them safe and dry”
– lyrics from the song Beautiful Pain by Rosanne Cash
dievca always thought she was a “no drama” zone. she feels deeply and is very direct/honest with her emotions – but not apt to make a scene.
A friend used the word “drama”multiple times relating to dievca. dievca thought she was missing something in the definition and looked the word up. The direct definition didn’t seem to apply either.
So, dievca googled Drama vs. Emotions and ran into this article:
OMG — dievca was horrified, she has done this!
And it prompted her to write this e-mail:
I have never understood why you use the word Drama relating to me. No one has ever used the word for me. I didn’t think I do drama.
I kept thinking that I just was telling you how I feel….
I was looking up the definition of Drama for a blog post and came across something about drama vs emotions, this article explained an important difference to me:
The message in between the lines is:
You screwed up.
You did something I don’t like.
