I could use some advice. I'm part of a group, and as you know, when you get a group of people together working for a similar cause, there can be drama. While this group does work well together and has fun, we still deal with human behavior: feelings get hurt, buttons get pushed, power is involved.
I'm making a conscious effort not to be involved in the drama. That means I have to try really hard not to give knee-jerk reactions. I try not to speculate. I try not to have an opinion. I try to keep it fun.
But I've gotta admit, that's really hard to do. I'm human too, and it's really easy to get swept up in any drama that comes along--especially if work's been a little frustrating, or I'm not feeling like I'm achieving in other areas of my life.
Do you have any tips for keeping the drama out? I'll take any advice--particularly advice on how I can orient my thinking and actions. I can't change anyone else, but I can change me. Unfortunately, it's going to take a lot of practice to make sure I behave the way I'd like to.
Thanks in advance!
