Move Along

“Speak to me, when all you got to keep is strong
Move along, move along like I know you do
And even when your hope is gone
Move along, move along just to make it through”

When did my life become so dramatic? Is this partially the result of therapy and figuring out more about myself and my life and how I react to things? I’m not saying that the drama is a bad thing. Maybe dramatic isn’t even the right word to explain. Increased life experiences…that’s more like it. In the past six months, my learning curve has been more than steep; it took a sharp turn upward. I know some of this may seem vague and unclear, but I guess I’m not quite ready to reveal everything to the world at this point.

Does drama add a certain spice to life rather than just make it more complicated?

I think it adds spice too. Challenges represent opportunity.

In the words of a wise woman named Mary J. Blige: No more drama!

it depends on the drama. and how it is handled.

agree with mdog. i used to find myself in all kinds of drama that was largely self-created. i was uber-dramatic in my way of speaking to people and reacting to situations. then i had a lot of real drama, actually, trauma is a better word for it, and i mellowed out a lot and (i hope) started to be kinder and gentler toward people. now, i still get excited to find little adventures and tell stories, but i don't think of those as being "drama". I guess what I'm trying to say is that it depends on your interpretation of drama, and then it depends on whether that drama is something you enjoy or if it's something you create but it actually makes your life worse. Hm. I may have actually been more vague and unclear in my response than you were in your post.
