Drop the Friend Drama


Drop the Friend Drama

By Elena Donovan Mauer

Drop the friend drama. I usually don’t stress easily. But when a friend causes drama, I get sucked in.

You know that friend? The one who spreads gossip, creates problems when there aren’t any, acts like the $5 hike on her cell phone bill is the end of the world — and calls you at 12:30 a.m. just to rant about it. She’s got a weird lump on her wrist that she thinks could be cancer (newsflash: that’s her wrist bone), and beef with her boss, who she can’t believe makes her stay in the office eight hours a day (the nerve!). It’s all about her!

How are you really supposed to handle her constant instigation, drama and crazy talk? Here are a few ideas.

1. Consider dumping her.
I’m not trying to be mean, just honest here. Friendships are supposed to make us happy and give us support. Really think hard about your friend and why you have her in your life. Does she listen to you when you’re upset? Does she keep your secrets when you confide in her? Is there give and take? Do you enjoy her company the majority of the time? If you have good reasons to keep her in your life, then on to No. 2. If not, it may be time to cut the cord and end the friend drama.

2. Occasionally hit “Ignore.”
