Some people would not know what to do without drama and crisis. So they remain at the control tower, binoculars in hand, on the lookout at all times for the next major disaster.
When no crisis looms on the horizon, they magnify small problems into events of enormous proportions. If the sea is calm for the moment, with not even a small difficulty to liven things up, they simply focus on worrying about something awful that has not happened yet but might at any moment.
They are also talented at becoming involved in other people’s crisis, jumping right in to offer advice and even carry the load as if it were their own.
The reality, of course, is that the only crisis such people suffer from is boredom. They generally need a great deal of excitement and drama to give them a sense of importance and control, and they use crisis to provide them with the stimulation they cannot find in ordinary, everyday peaceful existence.
Wouldn’t it be great, if you could stop for a moment and take a vacation from the crisis mentality mode and just concentrate on joy instead of sorrow, humor instead of drama, peace instead of chaos, love instead of hate.
There are far more satisfying ways to have fun than manufacturing crisis and drama.
In searching for peace and love, we find love and see a peaceful world.
Seek grace in your life, rejoice in the calm, celebrate beauty and harmony, allow your heart to hold the world in tender awe.
