Some people just LOVE drama. You know what I mean? It’s like they live for it. They try to control so much of their life, that they even attempt to control the chaos around them. They create the drama, because they want to have something to blame. A reason for why their life isn’t going the way that they hoped it would go, and they want to bring you down with them.
I tend to think of it as organized chaos. It’s like adding gasoline to a fire in measured amounts. The fire is going to ensue, but they’re the ones in control of where and how big the fire will burn. Then they just sit back and watch crying, “Woe is me!” but they don’t do anything about it. Sometimes, maybe they’re not even the cause of the fire, but they certainly don’t do anything to help.
Why do people do this? Why? Why? Why? I just don’t get it. I don’t care to get it, to be quite honest. It’s ridiculous to some extent how much effort people put into making a big deal or making a situation more difficult than it has to be.
I know you know someone like this. It’s not worth your time or energy. These people may seem really fun and interesting for a minute, but that’s all there is, just a minute of calm in an ocean of chaos.
People do this because there’s something wrong in their lives. There’s something that they are unhappy about and they lash out in other areas and at people in an attempt to feel some control over their lives. Unfortunately, for those of us around them, we turn into their collateral damage.
And you know what? In those situations it is OKAY to give zero f*#k$. Actually, it is more than okay. It is okay because it helps you to preserve your sanity. Your mental health is more important than someone else’s negativity. Don’t let other people drag you down. You don’t have to feed into their fire. Don’t let someone’s emotions consume you or take yours over. It’s just not worth it, and not giving a f*#k is completely okay.
