Yes, I feel very fortunate that my problems are trivial, and that my relationship is stable and happy.

MrsUPS:  Ditto.  

I cannot say I have always lived that way, but with age comes wisdom…or, perhaps, freedom.  

My motto is I cannot change other’s, or what flukey things occur, but I can always change my reactions to the situation.  Instead of worrying, apologizing for things I did not do, or could not control, or being angry – I take a step back, take a deep breathe, and carry on!

LIFE IS TOO SHORT, I promise 🙂

I feel incredibly lucky that I don’t have much to rant/vent about.  Even when there are real problems (i.e. my house flooding 2 days after my wedding) in my life, it’s easily handled and things get fixed without too much of an issue.

I think a lot of drama is caused by attitude. I’m even a pretty anxious person, but even when the proverbial poop is hitting the fan (we had some horrible visa trouble with Fiance about two years ago) we never descended into DRAMZ. It was incredibly upsetting, but Fiance and I just bit the bullet, dealt with it, and rolled on. Our relationship works because there is absolutely zero drama within it, and when outside stressors arise, we just try to deal with it in the calmest, most rational way possible. We do a lot of “talking it out.” 

When I think of drama, I think of people that tend to over amplify problems and make them worse. Do we get annoyed with our families? Yes. Do bad things happen to us? You bet. Do we ramp up the drama, bring it to facebook, start fights at people’s houses? No. That sort of madness seems so uncouth.

I don’t have a very drama filled life, but I have an anxiety disorder, so things sometimes feel more overwhelming for me then they are. I am still dealing with a bunch of death in my family that I never grieved over (and now that I am seeing a pyschologist, we are working through). I find a lot of my friends problems very trivial- “My mom and dad aren’t paying for this and that, I am soooo mad at them” and I am over here like “At least your dad is alive…..” lol

MrsUPS:  I tend to not sweat the small stuff too much. I’m also in my mid 30s and I’ve relaxed about so much over the years. My relationship is solid and stable, my relationship with my mom is awesome, and I’ve cut out most of the people who create drama wherever they go.

All Chilled and peaceful here. Fabulous friends and family, great relationship, good jobs/careers. We are very fortunate indeed. Especially with the friends and family.

Yep! I have 0 drama in my life and it’s great! I’ve always been very chill and a problem solver so instead of wasting my time worrying, I just figure it out

We don’t have drama in our marriage, thank god. I have a lot of anxiety but I’ve learned over the years to give myself a minute to be upset and then get down to solving my problems like an adult. We don’t have dramatic friends, we’ve curtailed contact with dramatic family or shut it down as soon as it emerges. My thought about this is that the only person’s behavior I can control is mine – if I don’t feed the drama, it doesn’t have to affect me. I just don’t pay any mind to people who get bent out of shape over everything. Life is just too short.

i live a drama free life and people who thrive on drama i avoid.

when i was planning my wedding, i laughed at many of the stories i read about BMs.  my Maid/Matron of Honor and BMs were the absolute best, they are my best friends and I would expect them to show me the same respect that i would show them in any given circumstance.  they did not disappoint, going above and beyond anything i could have imagined.

I feel like I have no drama in the things that I can have some control over (my relationship with my Fiance, my friends, finances, etc.) but then other people bring drama in, mostly my Future Mother-In-Law and my Brother-In-Law. I try my best to be calm about it, but sometimes other people just get soooo frustrating!
