How to Eliminate Drama in Your Life
Most people like to keep drama at a minimum in their lives, but sometimes it’s not so easy.
During stressful times or when dealing with certain people, you might find drama popping
up more than you’d like.
Maybe you’re at a breaking point, and you’re ready to finally eliminate the drama from your
life once and for all. Keep in mind that it’s nearly impossible to eliminate it all
together, but there are certain strategies you can follow to keep it to a minimum.
Consider adding the following strategies to your drama elimination methods:
- Keep to yourself whenever possible. It’s almost always best to adopt a “mind your
own business” attitude when you’re dealing with other people. When you snoop
around in someone’s business, you really never know what can of worms you’re
opening. If someone asks or invites you into their life, that’s one thing, but you should
avoid the urge to pry.
- Avoid participating in gossip. Humans are social creatures and they tend to talk
about each other. Sometimes you might think that your gossip is good news, so it’s
okay, but you never know how someone else might spin what you’re saying. It’s best
to avoid it whenever possible.
- If you have issues with someone, have a conversation directly with them. Then
they’ll know how you feel without hearing a version of the story from someone else.
- Make efforts to stop gossip. You’ll no doubt be in situations where you’re not
participating in it, but you’re hearing other people gossip. It’s difficult to go against the
crowd and take a stand, but you must if you’re serious about eliminating drama.
• You can choose to be silent and that way you won’t be held accountable, but you can
also politely say that maybe the subject at hand should be changed to something else.
- Be cautious when meeting new people. Of course you want to be friendly and
inviting when you’re meeting people and making new friends. However, keep your
guard up to some extent because you really never know when something you say
might be seen as hurtful or offensive, even when you didn’t mean it that way.
• Before sharing personal opinions, ensure you know someone well enough to
- Analyze past dramatic situations. Think about the scenarios that led to drama for
you in the past. Was it a simple misunderstanding? Is there a topic that always leads to
drama and arguments? You can definitely learn from past situations that transpired
negatively. Reflection can help you avoid those similar situations in the future.
- Learn how to release your emotions in a healthy way. Drama can lead you to
feel some strong emotions. Even if you’re trying to eliminate drama, you can’t just
avoid everything that you’re feeling. It can lead to more upset outbursts, since
you’re just bottling up those strong emotions. Instead, learn positive ways to release
• If you’re starting to feel upset because things are getting heated, remove yourself from
the situation. Grab some fresh air and return to the situation once you’ve found a cool
• Exercising is a great way to release emotions and pent-up stress.
• Daily relaxation is also important. Do something that you enjoy each day just for you!
