Why do People Love Drama?

It seems like on CM that some moms are here only to bash other moms for their choices or whatever. I understand having your own opinion but why be a bitch about it? Just to be hard on your keyboard or do you feel that crappy about yourself and use this website to feel better about your own sucky life?

Nobody's perfect.

Makes me sick.

  • Ppl are like that all over the internet and in person too. I know someone that if she gets an earache she calls out of work. The longest she can keep a job is a month. She gets fired and then can't pay her bills and wants everyone to feel sorry for her. She's constantly going on and on about how everyone has done her wrong. Reminds me of the Eagles song "Get Over It".

  • Last year she quit a job that was full-time, high pay wth benefits Mon-Fri 8-5 because she" didn't like how the lady was training me, and the lady was mean". What?! So I guess in her world everyone at work has to be the ideal person or the job just isn't acceptable.

  • Because their lives are so pathetic, it makes something seem interesting at the moment. It also makes them feel like super heroes when they belittle someone else. But, they just belittle in order to hide their own faults.

  • I have a different opinion. Some of what is said, is bashing. But sometimes people take well meant advice as bashing. Advice, even good advice, is not always what the person wants to hear. They want sympathy, not advice. Then, they are hurt when they get what they perceive as negativity. Each one of us comes to Cafemom with our own experiences, our own life choices. Age also factors in on how a poster responds. Older people look at life differently from younger people. A been there, done that philosophy and wanting to save others from the same mistakes. Not all people like that.

  • Because their life is boring so they feel like if they bash on someone else they can feel good about themselves for the short coming they have...

  • I think "Drama Queens" are unhappy within themselves, and most have major issues.
