Summary:

Step 1

Hey, you did it! You reached your final destination in a really tough subject!

Drama Busters start the process of healing and allow you to take down the walls that may have been guarding your heart.

Healing restores what may have been lost: a life filled with love, trust, hopefulness and a sense of well being.

Return and review as often as you like:
1- Be honest.
2- Ears first. Mouth second.
3- Don’t assume. Ask.
4- Keep it chill.
5- Own your stuff.
6- Recognize that the other person cares about you.
7- Release offense.
8- Humble yourself. Lower your guard. Swallow your pride.
9- Ask for help. Hear the truth. Practice saying, “I was wrong” - without adding, “but you…. or I don’t like it when you….”
10-Forgive. Make peace with yourself and others.

How important to you are the Drama Busters as your go-to strategy when things tense up?

Step 2

We encourage you to let down the walls that may be guarding your heart and allow yourself to be more vulnerable.

Give the other person the benefit of the doubt, believing they care enough about you to remain in the conversation.

Trust emerges with the understanding that you will not be devastated if someone lets you down. Disappointed? Yes. Hurt? For a while. But hurts heal if you let them.

While everyone has a bad day, and we all have faulty communication filters and ghosts, the good days should far outweigh the bad in normal relationships.

How confident are you that you can engage in conflict with an eye toward building a stronger friendship or relationship as a result of it?

Step 3

By learning to trust, you will have discarded a survival tool called mistrust, where once you may have felt as if you were forced to protect yourself.

You will have replaced it with a new tool - trust - that opens yourself to accept good people and richer friendships. The triple bonus is that you will have added more tools - happiness and a sense of stability.

How strongly are you motivated to pursue these new tools?

Step 4

On a scale of 1 to 10, where would you rate yourself in terms of being 'Drama Queen/King' (being 1) or 'Drama Buster' (being 10)?

Step 5

We've included a Drama Checklist in the related field. Look for it above. Click the box beside the title and schedule it as often as you like.

We recommend scheduling the checklist once a week to increase your momentum. Interested?

Step 6

When you're ready, advance to the related field and select the 8th set of JP navitents called, 'Vision4Future.'

Schedule it. Do it.

You can do the steps on your own or you can choose to post to your local campfire, the nationwide campsite of your peers and/or the international campground of teens and young adults you can relate to. Remember to check your message icon for comments.

'Vision' runs for 21 days straight, including weekends and holidays.

Are you in?

Step 7

Do you think someone else could benefit from the navigational steps in 'Drama'? If so, please feel welcome to share the link via the share tab.

Interested?

Step 8

The next time you find yourself in the midst of conflict, just smile inside and know that you have the upper hand because you know how to resolve differences so both of you feel like you've gained something important from the interaction.

You're defeating fear with each interaction and feeling all the hope, love and feelings of happiness that come with that!

All our best to you!
