How to deal with drama at school

By: Durartu and Fiona M.

Drama can be everywhere, and it can really take a big toll on your everyday life. At school for example, If you are stuck in the middle of drama, it is really hard to bounce back on track. Here are a few ways you can stay away from drama at school.

1. Choose Good Friends

Picking the right group of friends would definitely help you a lot when it comes to “hanging out with the right crowd.” It’s important to have a bunch of people you can trust and come back to when things go rough, for study sessions, and more. But it also helps the fact that drama will  be out of your life. When picking the right friends that you love and trust, it’s so much easier to have a good school year with no drama.

2. Treat Others How You Want to be Treated

  • Speak to and of others how you would like to be spoken to, and about
  • Make an effort to respect people even if they don’t show you that same respect

3. Walk Away From the Situation

Sometimes it’s best to walk away from the situation rather than staying in it and letting it get bad. A lot of times, people don’t realize that these situations can be very toxic and really affect you in a bad way at the end. Most times, it can get to the point where rumors start to appear and that can never be a good thing. If you know that arguing back and forth isn’t going to make things better then just save yourself the stress and just let it go.

4. If it Gets Serious, Talk to a Teacher

Drama can be handled at a certain standard but at times it can get bad. I personally have seen situations where an individual was verbally attacked and it was pretty bad. If that is the case, then talking to an adult may help. Telling on people, I know, doesn’t seem cool, but at the end it will be all worth it because it will resolve the situation.

5. Don’t let it Affect You.

In situations like these, it can really take a toll on a person and can make you feel different about yourself. Try and remember that you don’t need to let it get that far. Always remember who you are and what you’re about. Don’t let others take that away from you because you are stronger than that.
