Drama vs. Passion

According to Webster’s Dictionary, drama is “a state, situation or series of events involving intense conflict or force.” Passion, on the other hand, is defined as “a devotion to some activity, object or concept.” Do you live your life in drama or passion? Are you attracting partners who live in drama or passion?

A life filled with drama looks something like this:

• Everything gets a huge, emotional response.
• The emotional response is often followed by a big action.
• Peace is seldom experienced and often much wished for.
• Life is either really great or very terrible.
• Relationships, work and life in-general feel like a roller coaster.
• There is a general feeling of being drained.

A life filled with passion looks something like this:

• Emotions run deep and grow in intensity over time.
• Actions are thought out and lead toward the object of passion.
• Peace coexists with elation and excitement.
• Life is good, even when it’s filled with ups and downs.
• Relationships, work and life feel balanced.
• There is a general feeling of being energized.

What can you do if you are living with drama? Whenever you feel like reacting to a situation ask yourself the following questions:

• Is this as important as it seemed a few minutes ago?
• Is my reaction appropriate for this situation?
• What am I feeling?
• What is my biggest concern here?
• What do I really want out of this situation?
• How do I need to act in order to get what I want?
• Is what I want possible?
• Why do I want this?
• What are my needs that I need to care for right now?
• What is the truth that I need to communicate?
