It’s easy to be drawn into the drama in life, whether it’s your own or someone else’s.
You may find yourself either getting all heated up or worrying and fearful.
For some reason, we believe that by having these emotions, we are actually doing something and are taking action to address the situation.
What’s really happening is, highly charged negative feelings, have a way of robbing you of your peace in life.
Your thoughts are things
Or soon to be… When you realize thoughts become things, your reality starts to change.
Your thoughts actually turn into one emotion or another and emotions are very powerful. They not only have the power to alter how you feel but how you see things. That glass half full can suddenly become almost empty with your new perception.
The actions you decide to take from that perspective has the ability to change your day into promise and hope, or irritation and impatience.
What happens from there is all up in the air, but I promise something comes from it in some way.
Do you want to lift others up?
I realize that one of the first things you may want to do is to lift everyone up around you who are struggling.
Or… maybe you are more drawn to actually join in on the drama.
Don’t get drawn into the drama of the trauma.
We feel this magnetic pull to get drawn into other’s emotions. If you are having an off day, it’s easy to get pulled into the negative talk or even gossip.
Gossip and negative talk take you straight down.
It isn’t a great idea to put pressure on yourself to always be the one lift others up.
It’s their choice.
When you realize that everyone has a right to their feelings and their own choice to either pull past it or stay and stew, you’ll feel a whole lot better.
Not to mention lighter.
Allow others to choose this for themselves. They can choose to be miserable or let it go. It’s not up to you to take on that responsibility.
I’m not saying, don’t be uplifting and offer kindness, but there’s a difference. Being an inspiration and offering support when the other person is ready, is a great gift you can offer.
Just don’t push it or make it your responsibility.
Here are some steps I take that really help.
1. Say a Prayer
I will usually ask that any negative energy from other’s emotions be transformed into light and be sent back to where it came from. Yes, even for people you may not care much for. God has the ability to transform even the darkest of emotions. Just ask.
This helps them and helps you as well. Even if you are having difficulty with someone, watch their feelings for you transform after giving this gift. Simply amazing.
2. Take a Step Back
Never get drawn into sending back hateful thoughts. It is one of the worst things you can do to yourself. You attract like vibrations and as I mentioned earlier thoughts are things. Those thoughts will come right back atcha in some from or another.
If you are struggling with this one, then pull one of your tools from your handy tool box and work on it.
As you know, I use The Healing Codes, EFT and a many other tools, to get to the root of these emotions, images and beliefs.
So ask yourself what is the highest emotion you are dealing with. If it’s anger then address that anger and wherever it started, then use The Healing Codes to clear it.
You’ll feel better and most likely the person you’re angry with will too.
3. Let Yourself Just BE
You don’t want that energy becoming stronger. If you let it, watch out, it can take over.
Letting it go releases you on so many levels. Think of how heavy that weight is on you today and think of how it would feel to lift it off.
Once you see that you are offering the most support by stepping back, it’s easier to be in the moment.
When you are letting yourself relax, you are actually raising your vibration and lifting that of those around you as well. Doesn’t that sound like a more effective way to help?
I think that just bringing this to your attention, will help in changing your perspective on all of this.
There are better ways to help than getting drawn into other’s drama.
If you have some other suggestions or stories on how you’ve handled other’s drama, I’d love to hear about them in the comments below.
I agree that letting yourself BE is so important. You have to feel the emotion and let it go rather than reacting negatively to it. I think some people are more drawn to drama than others. I agree that we aren’t supposed to “fix everything” and expecting that will just lead to a downfall.
Yes I agree Sebastian. If we don’t allow ourselves to ‘feel’ the emotion first it just plants itself deeper within. Someday it will surface as something bigger and darker. Feel it then release it. Thanks so much for visiting!
Having a positive perspective in life will help us see the good in everything that we do, dwelling on the bad side of it, will result to failure, but learning to know your capabilities and be yourself will definitely draw us away from all the drama’s of life. Thanks for sharing.
I love your words Sherill. Thanks for being here and being YOU 🙂
Wonderful suggestions here, Melissa. I think letting yourself BE is a good one. Sometimes what I try to do is just ask, “How can I help?” If I can, great and if not, then I let it go. Sending positive messages to someone who is struggling is such a loving thing to do. Thanks!
It’s so easy to forget we’re NOT our emotions! We can let them pass like clouds in a blue sky. As usual…you’re so right Melissa.
The more I engage with fear and insecurity the more intense it becomes and the less productive I become. I’ve started to acknowledge and move on then it lifts. Feeding emotions you don’t need, your own and others isn’t very fun.
