I know someone that is always in drama and I'm not like that at all so it gets a but too much. It's one thing to be her friend and let her vent but when it's just draining to be around then it starts to wear on me. I was dragged into something recently and I really don't want to be involved with nonsense. I picked her up to go to a pre cinco de mayo family friendly gathering at another friends house. When I picked her up she told me that her SO was now mad that she left and he proceeded to call her phone well over 45 times. He then called MY phone!! (he must have saved my number when her phone was cut off a couple weeks back and she called me off of his phone) I did not answer and I told her I do not like that he is calling me, that's crossing a major boundary and totally disrespectful. I have nothing to do with their issues and he should not be calling me. She agreed and sent him a text and let him know. But anyway it just seems like it's always something, it's never "I'm having a good day!"
Anyway Im NOT asking for advice, im asking about your experiences, I just used me and a friend as an example. Do you ever just say enough drama from friends or family and stop talking to them completely? Share your experience.
Friends I will just quit contacting and be too busy for them. Family I will sit and listen while they vent but quit offering any advice or help. One of my stories - sil who complains every time I see or talk to her via email, phone, im about her husband for 15 years now. I finally got tired of it and now I just sit and listen to her vent and if she asks my opinion I just repeat what I've told her for year.."Leave".
