    Default Do people ever grow up?

    Is there a point where people grow up and stop trying to cause drama?

    Sunday was my 22nd birthday and my little girls 3rd birthday and not even then could people stop causing drama.

    Thankyou.

    Im at the point in my life where I don't want to be around people who constantly want to cause drama so I then distance myself but that in itself seems to just incite more drama.... Cant win.

    Most definitely not. There is not one thing or one person who could ruin my kids birthdays because i wont let it.

    But upon reflection it has frustrated me that people cant even keep the drama at bay for one day.

    What a fantastic birthday present a few years ago. Happy belated birthday.
    To answer your question no some people need drama in their lives, they can't cope without some crisis.

    In my experience some people just thrive on drama and they never grow out of it; I unfortunately know some people who are in their 60s and over who still bit*h and scheme to cause drama in other people's lives. I find it best to limit contact with these sorts of people and not to indulge them in their rubbish; if they behave badly I ignore them. Sorry some thoughtless people ruined your and your DDs special day!

    No, some people are just plain hateful and get a kick out of being that way.. Shame they can't pull their head in for a day or two though...

    Nope, some people just need to create drama their entire lives. It's unfortunate that they feel the need to do this but not much you can do about it. Try and distance yourself from them or don't include them on special occasions (if you can) so they don't ruin it for you.

    I remember when I turned 21 and got my first full time job in the city, I was completely disillusioned to discover that adults are just high school students in disguise that wear suits and can drive. As I've gotten older I've learnt to look for the following attributes in people: honesty, ability to put others needs before their own and trust worthiness. If you can find people like this you tend to discover that there ain't a lot of drama that follows them. Makes life very enjoyable and relaxing!

    Unfortunately, no. I deal with 'high school drama' causing adults on a daily basis. 2 of those people I have to deal with forever! (Ds father and my father!)
