Are you a dramatic person? The one who complains about everything for nothing, the one who always think that is the victim or life is against in your favour? If so, then you are certainly a dramatic one, from whom the people around by, cannot bear to hear your cinematic entanglements anymore.
The word drama gives us the idea of tragedy, something irreversible, situations that we do not think are beyond our reach.
There are two types of dramatic people, the first group are those who arereliving a bad history. For instance, a couple who are planning to buy a car, the husband wants to buy an 0kmcar, however, the wife insisted that they should buy a used car to save their economic for other spends.
So, the used car was bought by them, but for some reason it has constant malfunctions and does not last long. Here there is a dramatic husband, keeps remembering many times, if they had opted for the 0km car nothing would have happened. People like this are imprisoned in events that did not go well without ever freeing themselves.
The other kind of dramatic personare the one which in a present difficult situation become toxic to those around him. This is what the people of Israel did when they had a leaked waterresource:
Exodus 17 2-3 So, they quarrelled with Moses and said, “Give us water to drink.” Moses replied, “Why do you quarrel with me? Why do you put the Lord to the test?”But the people were thirsty for water there, and they grumbled against Moses. They said, “Why did you bring us up out of Egypt to make us and our children and livestock die of thirst?”People of this type avoid facing difficult situations, they expect the answer from the others or from a magical step.
It is necessary a process of maturation within those people, so that they leave the drama. We should be a coherent people, thinking about others, serving and loving in the true sense.
