We all want a little less drama. Here are some tips to reach that goal!
● Heed any red flags from your friends. Whether it's sharing waaaay too much on social media (narcissism?), constantly canceling on you, or ditching you for other things/people, you’ll want to distance yourself a bit from this friend to reduce the drama the relationship causes.
● Forgive, not forget. Forgiving others who have hurt you is important for your mental and emotional well-being. But that doesn’t mean you have to let yourself be hurt in the same way again – set some boundaries to avoid it.
● Don’t be a gossip. You know you don’t want your friends talking about you behind your back. So stay away from groups that tend to gossip a lot – that means they are definitely talking about you when you’re not there. And stay away from gossip yourself, to demonstrate that you’re trustworthy and attract the same kind of friends.
● Go with your intuition. You probably suspect when someone, friend or otherwise, isn’t transparent or genuine. You’ll fare better if you seek out those who are as friends.
● Recognize any subconscious efforts on your part to seek drama out. Sometimes when our life seems put together, we might create drama out of restlessness, wanting excitement, or maybe even boredom. Be aware of that in yourself, and pay attention to curb it when you need to.
