Avoiding drama is not easy but possible when we choose the role of an observer and not the role of a participant.
Like Aikido, a Japanese form of self-defense, an observer does not deny the situation, but steps to one side of the situation. An observer does not embrace negative thoughts and emotions but chooses not to participate. On the other hand, a participant jumps in, embraces negativity, chooses to add more drama and fuel to the already volatile situation.
Life is meant for everyone to sing THIS IS ME, as we learn to accept and respect our differences. Gandhi reminds us if you want a situation to change, then be the change you want to see. So how will you choose – will you live life today as an observer or participant?
