We all can be a bit dramatic from time to time. I can admit to having full blown bitch fits when something hasn’t gone my way or when I go to make a cup of tea and realise there is no milk left. Just because we are adults doesn’t mean we can’t lose our shit when something pisses us off. Who hasn’t full-on sulked when it feels like the world has wronged us in the most stupidest and smallest way. For example, when you go out to a restaurant and order something which you end up hating but dribble over what the person you are with has ordered and they won’t share. Yep, I have and will sulk in that situation.
Then on the flip side of that, when something goes right we can be dramatic like when I win at Monopoly, I will more than likely act like I have won a gold medal at the Olympics.
Being dramatic is a form of expression and it is not to be confused with anxiety, depression or most mental illnesses. I know the difference between my mental health issues and my dramatic flare. Some people think blogging or talking about there issues is a person being dramatic.
I think there is a big misunderstanding about why people share their stories, and why we decide to rip ourselves open to the world. There is a lot of people who don’t get it, and I get why people don’t understand. Why expose yourself to the world that can be very judgmental, are you that starved of attention? Firstly, honestly yes I was, and secondly, I don’t do it hoping for any type of sympathy. I do it for many reasons, sometimes it is to help me, sometimes it is to help others and sometimes both. I do it to have my voice heard, whether it is by one person, a hundred or just myself. I don’t expect people to understand, and if you want to read my words, look at my art and listen to my podcast great and if you don’t want to, then don’t. It is that simple.
Being dramatic is something we are all capable of, there is no age limit or restriction, you don’t need to have a mental health issue or illness, it doesn’t matter what sex you are or not and it doesn’t matter what your sexual orientation is either. Dramatic is just dramatic it can be as simple as that.
