After reading dozens of threads on this site and looking at the events, friendships and happenings of my own life that seem to mirror many of the posts and threads on this site, I am forced to conclude that we do, in fact, attract drama from all corners. Call it caring for the unstable, being unstable or just plain unlucky, whatever it is, we seem to be knee deep in melodrama for most of our lives. When we are not, we tend to whine about being lonely, which is considered by most of our more heartless counterparts to be another form of creating drama. My questions are thus: Can we change this, or is this just a part of caring for other people? Would we want to change this? Is the heavy emotional, overreaction such a part of our psyche that life wouldn't be complete without it? Is there anything we can do to prevent drama without fundamentally changing who we are? Your advice would be greatly appreciated.
