I'm noting a trend in my life this week - drama is coming from all directions. It made me stop and ponder, since I am the common denominator, where do I need to make some changes? When you start making changes in your life, it causes a ripple effect among those closest to you. They see you making changes and wonder if they too, need to do the same. This produces some interesting reactions. We've talked about this before on my blog, but since it is coming up yet again, I felt like there needed to be more discussion around it. As you rise on your path, you will find that you are having some folks closest to you try and bring you down. It's disappointing to say the least. Case in point, this week I had someone very close to me share news of someone that just wasn't her's to share. It traveled around, was shared with me, and next thing I knew, I was feeling like I was the bad guy when in fact I tried to shut it down by telling the person sharing it that it wasn't hers to share and I was going to forget she told me. Confused? I was too!
Drama will come to you from all avenues, it's your reaction to it that is what matters. It's a struggle but you will find it easier and easier to rise above each time. The less time you spend reacting to it, the less drama will come your way.
I'm choosing to take back my power in this situation and cut cords to those that stirred up the drama in the first place. The Universe is obviously trying to tell me that I need to, yet again, pull in my circle of influence and surround myself with those that lift me up. It's those folks that create an issue and then don't take personal responsibility for it that will find themselves on the outer layer of my "circle".
I am seeing a trend for what I am calling "rescuer energy" lately too. I've been there and done that. Let's spend our day working on other's issues so we don't have to spend time on our own issues. I get it, it's so much easier that way. Why bother to address our "stuff" when we can get in the mix of others? I'm making the choice to no longer step into drama. There are days where it will show up on my doorstep, but I know I have the personal choice to pretend no one is home!!
