Drama Exhausts Me

Rate this Entry
I've finally figured that out.

It isn't so much that I'm anti-social or introverted after all. Really, it has more to do with the fact that socializing by nature means more drama.

I'm done sugar-coating things, so I'll just dive straight into this.

There's a girl, named Angel of all names (definitely must be the looks, not the personality), who has more or less of a booty-call relationship with our friend Anthony. They used to date, but not anymore, now that he's going into active duty.

She was at the New Year's party, which I attended, and according to my long-time friend Rob "she was on You, Anthony, Dalton, Brennyn, and Jake".

My response was "she was on me? didn't notice tbh. but glad you think so highly of me."

I was being dead serious, of course. Yeah, her and I made conversation, but I wouldn't consider that "all over me". Have her suck my dick and fuck me, and then I'll agree. But until then the bitch is all bark and no bite as far as I'm concerned.

Anyway, she sent a naughty (not nude) picture to Dalton, who then shared it with the rest of us in the group chat. He has also told Anthony, who I doubt really cares, considering their relationship must've not meant much from what I could tell, based on their interactions.

It would therefore appear, that this is yet another girl I can add to my "keep at arms length by being a douchebag" list.

I don't play. And I don't share. If you're a good friend to me, that's fine, even if you're easily one of the best looking girls I've ever personally met. But the second you suggest anything more than that, you better be real with me, or you can go fuck yourself. Or somebody else.

Oh, I'm such a horrible person. #jadedsarcasm At least I won't try to out you as a whore, or criticize you for seeking sexual pleasure. Got fed up with that double-standard when it stopped being cool last summer.

Just another wonderful, ever so great story that I can remember for a long time to come, and turn into a character or book.

On the bright-side, Happy New Year! It's going to be better, I believe. Just wait.

    The degree of honesty you share both with yourself and others changes as you get older, for some it is a escape into what might have been, for others who are brighter " I include you in that group" It makes for a wonderful journey. Happy New Year to you as well...Bob

    Being honest isn't always an easy thing to do. But in almost all cases, it's the right thing to do.

    First off happy new year to you Smith.

    Second I agree it is hard to be honest but there always comes a time where honesty is needed, this being one of those times by the looks of it and as Plasticweld has said as you get older it becomes a easier to distance yourself from the drama and look at your life, yourself and those around you with more honesty and you eventually distance yourself from those bad influences and find others more like yourself who view you as a valid person and stop playing those childish games with you. Keep struggling on Smith it will be worth it in the end.

    Thanks Brown, I completely agree. This is exactly why drama exhausts me: because I prefer being distanced from it. Which isn't always easy when other people blindly insist on dragging you into it. Or, at least, telling me that I should care.

    I suppose this might be true, to some degree or another. But in this specific case I am not left perplexed.

    The reason for making this blog in particular, is coincidentally what H. Brown was talking about. Which was, to surround oneself with less negative influences. To sort things out with a bit of honesty and integrity.

    Figuring people out has proven beneficial to me. It's given me just as many insights into myself, as it has in regards to human nature or specific individuals. This knowledge can sometimes even help me develop characters, or the interactions between them.

    Yes, I eased the drama queens out of my life (or onto the periphery) some years ago. I use the term "queen", but not all were female by any means.
    Life is simpler this way.
    Recently, some new ones started showing up. I electrified the fence.

    I have been there myself over the last two years, I have left behind people who I used to think were the most amazing friends from college, however when I looked at the situation I realised that they did not come visit, only moaned that I didn't come visit them, they even went as far as to telling me that it was because of my bf stopping me from visiting them. When it wasn't.

    Over the last year I have stopped talking to two of my siblings because all they did was bring me down and tell me I was always in the wrong, even after I had been in hospital for nearly two weeks.

    It was hard to do however I am much happier without them being in my life right now after taking a step back and looking at each situation honestly in regards to how they kept treating me.

    Keep strong it does get easier and better.

    when you use words like figuring people out...one wonders how you can assume such a thing..possibly you can predict how a person will act and i get that, if that's what your hinting at but to think you understand a person beyond that you are bound to come unstuck...how many people have figured you out..have you figured yourself out...?

    By "figuring out", I think you assumed that I meant that as a destination, which may have been due to my poor wording.

    But like your Buddha quote, I meant it as a journey. You never stop figuring people out. Or yourself. It's quite rewarding. You can keep solving pieces of the puzzle, even building the full-picture, but then that picture is only one in the entire exhibit, which can only be added to, or taken away from, through time and life.

    In this particular case though, there wasn't anything for me to figure out. I just don't enjoy being involved in, or surrounded by, that sort of drama.

    not poor wording...i often base my replies to your comments on many things i've read over the years...one often assumes and one can be way off or spot on but i know i get more out of the experience than you because that's just me trying to figure you out and it's all part of my world having a go at putting you in a place i'm comfortable with....how you react to people will define you but how you see yourself is probably not how others see you and that's were we all are....cool dude.

    Actually, I think learning to "play" in life is exactly what is needed.

    Seems like people who tire of the drama of the world often are either too stiff or expect something of the world that isn't realistic- a sort of moral or virtuous simplicity or purity.

    But I've learned not to be half so serious about myself and not to take the world for anything other than what it is. A madhouse. Go play, mate. You might learn something new, lmao

    Depends on how you look at it I suppose. But I don't really think what I expect out of life is too much to ask for. And the petty drama I again, find to be tiresome and uninteresting.
