A woman I met this week on an airplane complained about everything the entire flight…loudly. Toward the end of the flight she asked me why I was going to Denver.
“To speak about being drama-free at a conference,” I answered, impaling her with my eyes.
“Good for you. So many people have a problem with that and those people have made my life miserable.”
Her oblivious response was not a surprise. Typically, those of us who cause the most drama denounce it the loudest. Mentioning it to her would have done no good. It took years and multiple messengers before I saw the drama in myself. And when I finally got it, I quit wasting the airspace with hate for anyone and anything that crossed me.
Here’s to a drama-free day!
