I recently was in a company of women with a lot of drama going on.
(Disclaimer on the photo...the photo doesn't represent the drama fest I'm speaking of...they're just poor youth who happen to be stuck in my digital camera.)
O.k. I know.
Women...together...sometimes ends in drama.
(Men do it too...they just call if Alpha male take over - short, quick, drama gone.)
Anyhoo...here we are with all this drama going on and I do what I shouldn't do.
I start blaming EVERYTHING on me. Why do I do that?
It's like some sort of self-perpetuating blame game which is really routed in pride.
(I'm trying to manipulate the person causing the drama and trying to play God...that's prideful.)
I'm thinking if I just blame everything on me...then they'll feel vindicated and everything will go back to normal.
I called my husband for support and all he could say is...ha!
I moaned to my friend about it the yesterday and she said something that totally opened my eyes and I won't forget it!
"You're going to get drama from girls of ANY age Lorrie."
"The drama doesn't stop because you get older."
I hadn't really considered it. WOW!
That one statement allowed me to not take everything so seriously and just release things to the hands of God. Something I should of done in the first place.
Likewise you younger people, submit yourselves to your elders.
all of you be submissive to one another,
and be clothed with humility for
"God resists the proud,
But gives grace to the humble.."
