Why is it that women have so much drama? Drama, drama, cry, cry, cry and more drama. And by drama I mean an emotional stress about relationships and events, as well as crying.
It is always unexpected too… like a sudden thunderstorm that lands over you and suddenly you are in a torrential downpour. Then again, we here at WTDA know that women are like the weather. Can I get an Amen… amen!
There are definitely some classic women drama issues too. Issues like: “She isn’t talking me”, “She just gave me the dirtiest look”, “How could he like her?”, or my personal favorite “She’s just trying to get attention”. Men don’t say these type of things. Correction: Men don’t typically say these type of things, and if we did we wouldn’t get a girl, something to think about ladies.
Yes, yes, I realize the differences that make women worth celebrating in their emotional ability to connect. I am just sayin…. just saying… it’s a lot of drama.
As Terry has well documented in What To Do About CRYING WOMEN… we often hear things like “I don’t know why I’m crying… it just cleans me out”, yeah but so will a good salsa.
Most of these things are really petty. Really really petty. But alas, we are messed up petty people aren’t we? We have to hold on to our feelings so that we can be upset or angry or um.. petty. I think I am using that word too much. Do you think it means what I think it means?
Where was I? Oh yeah, petty…
Of course both guys and girls deal with these things so I am getting off track a bit. Back to drama… and stop sidetracking me. I think just because women read into things more and are observant in different ways than men, that they notice and internalize looks and body language and statements in ways that men just gloss over… with good reason mind you, if we all got caught up in this type of thinking (drama) we would all go crazy and I think someone would die.
So what should we do? Well… take some crazy pills cause then things might seem normal. “I feel like I’m taking crazy pills!”
Secondly, men, be aware of the drama. Tell those ladies to save that drama for their mama.
Thirdly, women, limit the gossip, fakeness, and backbiting whilst striving for truth, sincerity, and love (easy right?… and I said ‘whilst’ did you see that?)
Fourthly, men, love women anyway. Because it beats starving and cleaning the house on your own.
Fifthly, everyone.. can I say ‘fifthly’ or should I just say ‘fifth’?
Sixthly, most of negative drama (with men and women) stems from pride, insecurity, worry, fear, doubt, etc. All these things that could be dealt with, sometimes with a hammer and blows to the head, but dealt with nonetheless.
Seventhly, now I definitely know you shouldn’t say ‘seventhly’ I think it sounds so cool I had to. Seventhly, women, when confronted with situations, step back… don’t step up… step back… and slap yourself in the face! “…in lowliness of mind let each consider others better than himself.”
In closing, I would just like to say to all the women in our life, we love you. What To Do About.com loves you and are glad that you are women and not men. Boy are we glad!
Now go and quit crying all over the place.
