Well, I decided that last year’s JIJ worked so well for me to get into daily journaling/blogging/writing that I’m back again! Thanks to Linda G. Hill for giving us all this opportunity to just jot. Today’s prompt is Drama.

It seems that a lot of people thrive on it, drama. For me, it often seems silly the drama created because people don’t just speak their truth. Maybe they are afraid of not being accepted. Or maybe they want to try out a new vision of themselves and don’t want to look silly as they practice it.

Could it be they want to hurt your feelings or save your feelings? What if it is just not a good day and they need to be left alone? The person on the outside looking in can only wait until the truth comes out, however long that may take. Yet the person feeling and causing the drama may not even know. I’ve been on all sides of this drama dilemma.

There are some people that force issues and get in your face and yell. That may work for some but if a person gets in my face it is more than likely going to turn me off and send me elsewhere. There are some that need that kind of catalyst. If they get mad enough or sad enough they will let it all out. But I find that it is often the crazy emotion that taints the inner truth.

Wouldn’t it be great if we could just be logical like Spock and work things through? I can do without the drama–unless it is in a movie or book, or I get to be the actress playing the part.
