We all run into unexpected and unanticipated problems from time to time. Nothing tests our resilience like some of the curve balls that life manages to throw our way. However, there are those that are not content to wait for those infrequent pitches, they actively seek out new problems themselves.
They may hide behind the belief that they are merely being proactive in dealing with the issue now, but make no mistake...
If you go looking for problems, you will always find themSometimes the problems we face are those of our own creation.
I don't want to minimize real issues and problems that you are facing. Know that you can count on me to be there to support and help you through the problem in whatever way I can. But I do want to acknowledge the small contingent of drama queens out there that get a 'rush' being on the short end of the stick, that craft their problems with a deft hand, ensuring that they are regularly in crisis. They are addicted to the high that comes from dealing with problems. They love the adrenaline rush, the attention and 'poor you's' they receive, the false belief that they are 'strong' for having to cope with so much, so often.
To these people specifically I say... No More!
An emergency and crisis on your part does not constitute an emergency on mine.No more will I put my life on pause to hold your hand through a crisis of your making
No more will I listen to your tirades, your tears, rants and raves
No more will I sacrifice hours of my time and life to support yours
No more will I allow myself to be drawn into your tragedies and dramas
I prefer my life to run more as a romantic comedy, less as a tragedy. I'm not saying you can't enjoy your drama and play it out on the big screen in surround sound... just don't invite me to attend the viewing. I'm sure I'm busy that night!
