Sometimes it is discrete. Sometimes it is unashamedly in the open. Sometimes it is between guys, other times it is about guys. Whispers, laughs, and spiteful glances are found in the hallways, at lunch tables, and classrooms of every school. And, it is not limited to the confines of school walls as it often overflows into social media. Drama within the school atmosphere is an issue that rarely receives the acknowledgement that it deserves.

Without question, people talk about one another, but all too often it is not the right things being shared. It is the rumors and demeaning gossip that is passed through the hallways. Jealousy prevents compliments. The history from years past smothers the growth of future relationships. Hurtful words overpower kindness. People become known for the drama that is said about them rather than who they truly are. Their labels become their identities .

We give too much attention to the drama itself instead of concentrating on confronting it. Too often, we focus on what people are saying rather than resolving it. There is no doubt that you will be affected by it, but it’s up to you to decide how you will react to it. It’s important to fully understand the accuracy of the story rather than fall for flawed information.

Be encouraged. Do not be drug down by drama. Do not let it take precedence in your life.

You are more than a conqueror.
