Whether we’re watching it play out on our screens and social media feeds or experiencing it in our relationships and workplaces, many of us find ourselves exhausted by the seemingly never-ending torrent of drama in our lives. While some of us long to escape the drama, others dive in headfirst — and both groups desperately need a solution.
On this episode, Addicted to Drama: Healing Dependency on Crisis and Chaos in Yourself and Others author Dr. Scott Lyons joins us to discuss why some of the drama queens and kings in our lives might actually be addicted to drama. Some folks thrive on crisis while others manufacture it, but it’s not normal to live a life consumed by chaos. Here, we learn to recognize drama addiction in ourselves and others, grasp the ways in which drama addiction affects our well-being, build and uphold boundaries in our drama-ridden lives, and much more. Listen, learn, and enjoy! [TW // Self-harm and suicide are discussed.]
