I'm a member of a fair amount of social media type sites and the amount of drama going on one of them has me sick to my stomach. People can't seem to get along, and I often wonder why I haven't just deleted my account and walked away from it entirely.
Well, thanks to a conversation I'm having, I have realized why I haven't. It is because people come to me asking for help, looking for somebody to talk to when they first join. And for them to come to me, well, it makes me feel good to a certain extent. Some of these people have asked me why I'm not leadership. My usual response? I hate the drama that seems to come with the territory. Everything I say, and everything that I do would be under scrutiny. Gossip would fly behind my back, and I'll attract more haters than I do as is.
And you know what? I have absolutely no desire to be in charge, to be a leader. I am happier sitting in the background while the petty BS flies all around. I don't judge, and I don't join in on it, just observe silently. If they want to allow drama to rule their lives, then good for them. I'll just enjoy my drama llama free zone while eating my popcorn and crocheting BA afghans!
