I’ve decided to get a divorce. Long overdue, but better late than never!
I’ve been trying hard to live like this – but things are just not working out. My spirit rebels. My energy is depleted. I can’t carry on this way any longer.
Yes, my divorce is final!
I’m so done with drama that I’m divorcing myself from it! (Got you, didn’t I?)
Looking back at my life, I find that I seem to invite drama or associate with it. I can honestly say that I am usually not the one to create it. But it comes right into my life anyway. I’ve had friends and family who seem to thrive on it and it wasn’t until recently, I’ve realized that I can’t take any more of it.
I needed to look into myself to see why drama kept finding me because I seriously believe this:
Drama just doesn’t walk into your life. Either you create it, invite it or associate with it! ( The Good Vibe)
I realized it’s a lack of confidence in my own opinions, a need to be needed and just years of being the ‘venting wall’ that brought drama to my door.
No more. If you want drama – go find a another theatre and a new audience. Not my circus, not my monkeys, I remind myself, each time drama visits.
My very wise husband has been telling me for years that all it takes is to learn to ignore some people and/or what they say – it’s all about detatchment and a sure way to inner peace! What can I say? I’m a slow learner, but I’m getting there! 😉

Congratulations on your divorce Corinne! It’s probably one that most all of us could/should be going through as well. I do try to stay away from drama as much as possible but he keeps following me around where ever I go! Fortunately my “word” for 2015 is self-reliant so hopefully I too can leave him in the dust!

Drama is a good think to get divorced from. I wish I could but the relatives providing the drama are people I must have relationships with. My word for 2015 is “different” so perhaps I should file for that divorce after all.

Great decision Corinne! Keep the drama out of your life. It is not worth your time and energy.

You certainly had me there Corinne! But I’m glad it’s that kind of divorce and not the other – great decision to invite only good things into your life. Glad you’re finished with the drama! Happy New Year and here’s to a brilliant 2015 xx

Haha! I was starting to feel sorry for your husband, Corinne. 🙂 Yes, there is only so much drama a person can take, before one gets fed up. Good for you! May you have a successful divorce. Happy New Year!
P.S. I’ve been talking about you! 😉

hat’s super-on-target. I used to have a life of drama until I understood that it was of my own creation. But yes, you had me for a minute!!!!

You almost scared me with your title. Never mind. You know Corinne, we leos have an attraction for dramas. We don’t invite them, they come searching for us. And I am glad you are divorcing it. Hope it doesn’t touch you again 🙂
Oooo! This was SO good! My hubby is where there is no drama in my life – and most of mine was from associations! I hate, loathe and despise drama and it was if all the people around me are in love with it. I am so amazed how much more peaceful my life is once I weaned myself from the drama-ites! I enjoyed this post.

Kudo’s to you girlfriend. I loved this. We should all divorce ourselves of drama. I am not sure if I am an inviter or an associater to it. I guess more of the inviter. Not anymore. I, like you, made a choice a while ago to stop living with drama around me. My life is so much more healthy without it. My oldest son came to my new home that I call my peace haven and on his third day he started in with the drama. I told him to get his stuff and I would drive him home a day earlier (he lives out of town) and I drove him home and went home to my peaceful place. I think I surprised him a bit but taught a lesson that I don’t do drama and dont want it in my environment anymore. So, I removed it and moved on. Life is good and my son doesn’t escalate drama when he comes to visit anymore. Hoorah!
Have a great week.
