Let me just say, I don’t do drama. Or better stated, I have never enjoyed confrontation. When put in such situations, I am always the one to withdraw. Must be part of being an only child. I don’t fight well.
Now don’t get me wrong, I have 3 daughters, a few marriages, and lots of life experiences along the way, so I have certainly encountered my share of drama in my day. I just try to avoid it at all possible costs.
I recently was the bystander in what I would deem a full blown situation of drama. Drama is defined as an exciting, emotional, or unexpected series of events or set of circumstances. This was all three. There was excitement all right. It was highly emotional. And it definitely was unexpected.
I said and did nothing. I simply observed. I was not biting. I was not engaging into something that wasn’t my business. It was not my drama.
When all was said and done, I was left emotionally drained. But I was also left with a peace. A peace that I was finally getting it. Doing what God’s word instructs me to do. Live peacefully. Mind my own business. Take care of the only thing I truly have any type of control over, myself.
Let’s leave the drama in life for the theaters. Those trained to play a part. Instead let’s do our part to bring peace and love to a world full of excitement, emotion, and unexpected.
And to aspire to live quietly, and to mind your own affairs, and to work with your hands, as we instructed you, so that you may walk properly before outsiders and be dependent on no one.
1 Thesolonian 4:11-12
