So I originally had a different post scheduled for today, but then I got the inspiration to write this post instead and decided that this one would be better suited for today. Drama happens a lot in our everyday lives, especially being a girl. I know, that is a huge cliche, but it’s true, there is a lot more drama surrounding girls than guys, it is one of the reasons I had mostly guy friends growing up. It’s just simply how it is, and I thought that it would get better after high school, but I haven’t really noticed a difference yet, but that’s okay because I know how to stay positive when there is drama going about, even in the thickest of ones. Now of course, you should always try to avoid drama, but sometimes you just can’t, it’s inevitable. I have a couple of friends who are dealing with a bit of challening drama right now, and my heart goes out to all of them, I wish I could take it all away from them and fix it, but unfortunately, I cannot. All I can do is pray, give them a listening shoulder when they need it, and try my best to keep them positive.
Staying positive in the most challenging of dramas is absolutely essential because otherwise it will consume you. Most of the problems that you are having right now are not going to matter in a year, a month, sometimes even a week. Remember that. When there is drama going on in your life, be as kind as you can to the others involved because being anything else will probably result in you just feeling worse. Now, make sure to stand up for yourself, but it is still important to be nice about it. Try not to let others affect you so much, it doesn’t matter what they are saying about you, just focus on being a good person. There is this verse in 1 Peter that I love, it talks about how you should be such a good person that even if others speak badly of you, you know and God knows that what they say is false. At the end of the day, that is all we need to focus on, being a good person in God’s view, and following what God tells us about treating others. There are so many verses for you to read when you are dealing with drama, I’ll give a list for you to look at. I strongly encourage you to do so, I promise that it will be the key to making you feel better.

1 Peter 3:16
I hope you have a lovely and positive day
