We all are surrounded by people in our families, who are pro in creating Drama; who are an expert in getting what they want through emotional blackmailing, bullying or screaming. Their drama scares people so much that they agree to do whatever the person wants them to. These people don’t care how much they are controlling others or how their drama is breaking the other family members. The only thing that they care about is whether they get what they want!
And like many others, I have also met many people who would fall into this category of dramatic people. These people indulge in the unhealthy pattern of getting things done for their selfish interests without worrying how they were shattering the people around them; they refuse to acknowledge how their controlling tactics are exhausting, unhealthy and toxic. While they keep getting what they want, they don’t care if it breaks and shatters someone else; they don’t care if that ruins someone else’s relationship! The only thing that they care about is themselves!
And, here’s what I want to tell these Dramatic and toxic people: Dear Dramatic People, No more drama, please.
Your drama is choking people day in day out. Your controlling nature is breaking people’s dreams, ruining their relationships and leaving them broken and shattered!
Your deep desire to make the world revolve around you; Your desire to be the centre of everyone’s attention; Your desire to be treated as the most important person in the family is breaking many people around you! Your desire to be treated as the best while you treat the rest like doormats is leaving many angry, upset and scarred.
While many keep handling your emotional drama silently, don’t assume they are okay with it. Your drama not only hurt people but also leave them heartbroken. Your behaviour hurt people so much that they spend multiple years coping up with your endless trauma!
Dear Dramatic People, Stop hurting people. People handle your drama just because they don’t want to get you hurt. Stop assuming their kindness and love as a sign of weakness. Stop controlling, bullying or manipulating people with your words! Stop telling us – “I have done so much for you”! Just because you have done so much for us doesn’t give you the right to bully someone; to manipulate someone; to harass someone!
I am done with your drama! I am done giving you second chances! I am done giving you another chance to hurt me! I am done giving you another opportunity to exploit my kindness and values!
Dear Dramatic People, Respect and love are earned! Don’t assume that your drama will get you love and respect! While you are busy dragging everyone in your drama, remember one fine day people will realize your dramatic tactics and leave you for their own good.
Before things get worse, get your act together. Stop assuming that you own people; stop emotional blackmailing people! Don’t make people regret being kind to you! And, for the last time, please stop your drama to control people. People around you deserve better! Much better!
