Stop the drama

It was the perfect storm—of drama. There was one person in my circle who seemed prone to emotional outbursts, pouting, giving others the silent treatment, and just generally being unpredictable. One day she was sweet and fun to be around, and the next, she’d be terrorizing someone in the group with one of her terrible moods.

Yes, she had her issues, but the rest of us also had our own—and we didn’t handle things very well. We spent a lot of time talking about her, analyzing her behavior, feeling hurt when it was directed at us, and getting buffeted by her emotional gales.

We'd love to hear from you!
