Family drama created by family members may point out royal pains in the ass!
Troublesome, annoying, offensive, sometimes causing rude, ill-timed, very public attacks, laid bare for all to witness.
It may not be everyone. It usually isn’t.
But, it only takes one or a few members of your family who don’t feel it necessary to play nice, to cause upset.
How do you deal with it?
They seem to go out of their way to be downright nasty.
Their words can be hurtful, and embarrassing.
And they don’t seem to care what they are doing to whom, how or where.
They will try to draw you and others into this drama, even if this means going public.
They leave unnecessary muck in their wake.
How do you deal with this in your family?
Do you jump right in, and let your emotions fly?
Do you make every effort to ignore the ignorant nature of such encounters?
Or do you isolate yourself from such follies, and just get on with your own life?
Personally, first I tell them, “I’ll hug you later.”
Then I let them know in all frankness how their drama makes me feel, and how much I hope we as a family can have more drama-less moments in the future.
Or else, I will have to stand apart from them.
