I did the same thing as you. I cut down five friends of my life in , and I started over, because life is just one. And I was free of drama, and right now I met someone the last year, and right now made me a drama of nowhere.. Ninnoo — Thanks for commenting! You can be patient and make a decision when the emotions have subsided.
One of my personal boundaries with friends is I cannot tolerate passive-aggressiveness. Its an opportunity not only for me to apologize, but it also helps me understand my friends better which only strengthens the relationship. Acting nice to peoples faces when you secretly hate them and just gossip behind their back with no intention of solving the problem is… immature at best.
Even if the chick did look awful in those pants and was a whore…who the fuck actually cares? Oh I forgot, talking shit about others is supposed to be fun…ZZzzz Zzzzzz zzzzz. Even if its stealing some coins off my nightstand, you are done. Coins may come first…and then what?
Theft is something I will cut you with no explanation over. I once was on a second date and the guy straight up admitted that he was a sociopath sometimes. If you are proud of being some kind of psycho like its supposed to be cool, why should I call you? Oh yeah, nothing is more sexy than the possibility of you one day murdering me, okay there bud…. Dani — thanks for commenting! I really appreciate your feedback and that you enjoyed the article.
My social life has never been better. The relationships I have with my friends are deeper, more meaningful and more fulfilling for everyone involved. Just celebrate the difference and colors. Its good to stick on positive vibes as much as possible while dealing with different mindset n attitude. But at the end of the day, put your right hand on your left chest. When it comes to matter of the heart aka true love, with drama or without, you will endure. I loved that article. I am currently working on this problem coz I am one bigtime drama babe….
I just wanted to thank you very much for your article and video. It struck a chord with me. About five years ago, I found myself hanging out with a group of people that seemed to thrive on drama.

As a result, I was constantly being pulled into their respective soap operas. I decided that I was sick and tired of dealing with all of their nonsense, and ended up cutting off all contact with them cold turkey. It made all the difference in my life. I am very happy and content with the positive people that I surround myself with now, and I would never go back to the way things used to be.
Keep up the good work, my friend. You are helping a lot of people. I might need some help, lol. From needy friends to studying nursing. I am finally ready to be free of this.
Need more proof?
I remember when I had it myself and how much of a gamechanger it was. Hi well i was told i was drama but i beleive that im not because i feel like im a drama magnet. My son said i was drama and other people in my life. Well i dont fit the whole criteria. I have alots issues and low self esteem a d i hate other people drama but apartly sinse i been around all my life i have developed the drama life.
So i want to vhange and improve but i dont want to cause problems or be a hypocryte to my friends that i used to hang around because its like they r family. If i do yhat i eill have nobody in my life. I dont set boundries at all im emotional and angry person. Sk any help would be great. I do want new friend that can show positive outlook of life. Jennifer — Thanks for sharing. Great book that will help you a lot.
Thanks for your article. Another friend I had in the past few months was a major drama queen and I confronted her about it.
As a non-drama lover, I still feel the drama every time I see her. I find myself getting angry and looking at websites trying to find a solution to it. I keep myself busy with my life, not dwelling on her, but today was a major slap in the face when I ran into one of the friends and was chatting for a minute, and who comes along but miss drama queen. Wow, I guess I needed to get that off my chest. So, thanks for letting me vent on your forum and if you have any suggestions, please feel free to let me know.

Cas — Thanks for commenting. Her website is here: In so far drama can be interpreted as really intolerable stuff… people who suck up huge portions of your would-be recreational time not because they had some emergency and really need help, but simply so they can live more comfortably… or, stuff even worse than that… it speaks to me.
But, the word drama means something different to everyone. I have that sign in my car…I cut everyone off.. I only feel slightly lonely…at night when it gets quiet…I dnt miss the BS that went with trying to have a group of friends…ive moved on im bk in college bought a home vehicle…I find crafts n bible study I play games n create with my daughter…honestly my life is better. I like how you put it, simple but also very helpful. Hope to read more about setting boundaries!
Hi…my comment on drama is that you can definitely live without it, especially when the drama causes arrest…fist fights, anxiety,divorce, hospitalizations, death…etc. I have a husband and we live a totally drama free life…I mean we have small up and downs between us but we have a lot of respect for one another so we are able to talk through our problems…he is my Blessing.
I have a friend of 50 years whom I Love dearly, until very recently we have not lived in the same state but have always kept in touch and seen each other from time to time…however I am very aware of the chaos and drama filled life that she has been living, I did let her know that I will not do drama not for a sec. I am noticing little things in the drama category.
I Love my peace and my life I refuse to allow anyone to mess up what I have built. It is not worth it. At my age I have seen many people that I knew lose their lives…because of drama…due to strokes and heart attacks…stress…I refuse to let that be me. Life is too short and you have to enjoy it…live it positively in order to live it best…drama is a lot of negative energy and by the way I Love you column, very well put. Unfortunately while this advice works with friends it is much more difficult with family, especially your children when they cause issues and need help.
My family an his roommate are causing drama in my relationship with roommate boyfriend how can i stop this drama from breaking us up.

I will say this was good for a few laughs yet the tome of the book got quite redundant.
Live Your Life in a Crap Free Zone
I was very tempted to stop and count the number of times the word "crap" was used, let's leave that at "many, many times". The book does share much validity on the topic of said "crap" yet so much of it came across to me as basic common knowledge. It is I will say this was good for a few laughs yet the tome of the book got quite redundant. It is humorous though Feb 14, Shelby rated it really liked it Shelves: It is a belly-clutching humorous book that shoots between the eyes as it tickles funny bones.
This author writes like a stand-up comedian. His raw, and often cynical truths, lie beneath brilliant jokes and satire. The author, a personal trainer and nutritionist, has a tough skin. He writes about the ways he overcame early hardships, but never with a tone of self-pity. In fact, he suffered the most terrible form of death-sentence imaginable and revealed how, in one mental swoop, he changed his death sentence to a life-affirming reality. It is a shame he stopped short of giving tangible steps and realities to this new mental attitude that saved him - it might have helped countless others going through the same thing.
