Being drama free as a teenager can be hard with school and other things happening. But, being drama free will lead to a less stressful middle school and high school life. A lot of the time, it's easy to say you want a drama free life but not know where to start.

Change Yourself to Be Drama Free

If you decide you want to be drama free, the best way to start is with yourself. Don't get involved with the drama. If you're friends are gossiping don't get involved. This can definitely be hard to do, especially in high school. Tell your friends that you just don't care. Gossip is bad. Most of the time it isn't true and it's hurtful. Just ignore it.

Don't get involved in teasing, bullying, or saying hurtful things. You should always try to be nice to everyone. From my experience, if you surround yourself with positivity, you will have a positive life. Negativity will create a negative life. That is pretty self explainatory. If drama and negativity is what you don't want, be the opposite!

Keep Your Social Networks Drama Free

Social networks have been known to be the spawn of drama. People post things all the time about how "So and so did this. I can't believe it." If you are one of those people who posts things like that, stop. Stop posting negative things and post happy positive things. Tell your friends you don't want drama on your page and if they don't respect that, remove them,

When other people post dramatic stuff on their profiles, just don't respond. Like I said, social networks are the spawn of drama. It is easy to get sucked into the online drama. If it really is getting hard to avoid it, either de-activate your social profile or walk away from the computer.

Drama Free with Your Friends

These next two sections are probably going to be the hardest to do. I put them at the bottom because the first thing you need to do before even attempting this one is to change yourself. If your friends are being a negative and full of drama, tell them to stop. It's simple. Explain to them that you don't want your life full of drama so please respect it. If they are truly your friend, they will.

There are some people who just won't or can't stop. After giving them warning, if they continue, remove them from your life. Yes, it will create some drama. But in the long run, you will be better off.

Especially if drama is starting about yourself, it's not worth it. Don't waste your energy on the negative people. If someone is trying to start drama with you, flat out ignore it. If your friends are starting drama with you and about you, they aren't really your friends. Surround yourself with positive and drama-free people and you'll be drama free yourself.

Do you find it easy to be drama free with your friends and family?

Drama Free with Your Family

Being drama free with your family can be even harder than being drama free with your friends. You can't remove them from your life because they are family.

I know that being a teenager is all about finding your independence. But, your parents know what is best for you. Trust me, I have learned this as I reached adulthood. Listen to your parents. This will greatly decrease fights and thus, the drama.

As for siblings? This part gets tricky. Calmly tell your siblings what you desire (Space? Privacy?) If they don't respect it, talk to your parents. Avoid fights with your siblings. Remember, they are family and they love you (even if it doesn't seem like it.)

Being drama free is beneficial in so many ways. Congratulations on wanting to take the step into making your life, especially as a teenager, drama free. You are making the right choice even if it feels like it isn't. Keep it up and you will be happier. How do you stay drama free?
