  • I try to limit the time I spend with them or cut them out of my life completely if possible. I have enough stuff to deal with, I don't have time or energy to deal with drama llamas.

  • i don't... =P

    i know a few people who are always in some type of pickle. most of the time, the drama is self inflicted. i've managed to live a drama free life for the past 6 years since i cut those people out. i just spectate now from facebook. lol. but i don't deal with them anymore.

  • You don't.. you refuse to deal with them unless they are going to behave like calm, rational adults...

  • They are a lot like toddlers with tantrums- if you ignore them, they will stop. With nothing to feed into their drama, the drama eventually stops. So- I ignore!
