Save the Drama for Your Mama: Being Drama-Focused is Keeping You From Happiness with Christina Montalvo

Do you have a person in your life where it seems like every story they tell you about their life is drama-filled?

Or, the tougher question: are YOU the person who is always at the centre of drama?

Life happens and shit hits the fan sometimes, but when drama is a constant in your life, either from yourself or from others, it’s probably twisting you down a more negative path and keeping you from joy.

Ms. Christina Montalvo of The Confidence Project is back today for her regular guest spot, and we’re talking:

  • Being solution focused vs problem focused
  • Identifying with emotions over facts as a way to stay stuck in drama
  • The ripple effect of drama (hint: it’s SIGNIFICANT)
  • Victim mindset
  • Taking a close look at who you’re surrounding yourself with
  • How to readjust your attitude towards drama, whether it’s your own or someone else’s, and how to handle drama gracefully when it comes your way.

If this resonates with you, please share! Additionally, since these joint episodes between Christina and I are going to be happening on a monthly basis moving forward, we’re thinking we need some sort of name for them 😂 Tag us on Instagram and let us know if you have any ideas!
