I was reminded recently that we always have a choice when it comes to drama. Just because someone else is chomping at the bit to make a scene, or even to poke and prod a reaction out of you, doesn’t mean you must oblige. In fact, I’d argue that it’s to everyone’s benefit to nod, smile, and walk away. At least most of the time.
Whether it’s Facebook, Twitter, or face-to-face, we’re far too used to spewing whatever we’re thinking. And really, much of what crosses our minds should stay there. Half-formed, self-righteous and self-absorbed, cluttered observations don’t need to see the light of day. And they needn’t cause drama in your own life.
Just walk away.
