Trigger Warning: The following dishes out a hard matter-of-fact dose of reality based on personal experiences…also the occasional use of memes.
Merriam-Webster defines drama three ways.
A: type of Literature.

I am generally a light-hearted person with a very dark sense of humor. I do not take myself or life too seriously. Please keep that in mind as you continue reading. If you get offended at anything I am saying then maybe you need to take a long hard look in the mirror and ask yourself if you are contributing to the problem.
Personally, I am very tired of seeing everyone hate on each other. My only hope is that I reach those that are being affected by drama and provide some support. Maybe be a bit of a guiding light navigating the dark waters of drama…or at least make someone stop and think.
