Hey everyone, today's topic is about Drama Queens. What is a drama queen? A drama queen is someone who always has to be the center of attention. They usually over exaggerate everything and blow everything out of proportion. I had one living with me for ten years. Now I don't claim to be an expert on drama queens, but I do have some experience in dealing with them.
"Just because some people are fueled by drama doesn't mean you have to attend the performance." By Cheryl Richardson
A drama queen turns every situation into an end of the world life or death event. She makes mountains out of molehills. She is a constant complainer, and responsibility is just a word in the dictionary. Everything that goes wrong in her life is always someone else fault.
The Extreme Drama Queen
In my opinion, drama queens or kings are created by not getting enough attention when they were children, so they learned how to act out dramatically to get the attention they needed and required. The extreme drama queen is always seeking for approval and according to Psychology Today, and MedlinePlus they suffer from Histrionic Personality Disorder. They believe Genes, and early childhood events may be responsible.
What is Histrionic Personality Disorder
Histrionic Personality Disorder or (HPD) is described, as a mental health condition which affects how a person thinks, how they relate to other people and how they perceive things to be. They are always seeking for attention and approval. Individuals who have (HPD), are easily influenced, are very dramatical in their speech and their emotions change rapidly. (HPD) is more often diagnosed in women, than in men.
Symptoms of (HPD) include
Easily influenced by other people
Overly dramatic and emotional
Blames their failures and disappointments on others
Always seeking for attention and approval
Rapidly changing emotions
Usually, act and dress more seductive
They believe their relationships are more intimate than they are
Often suffer from depression and anxiety issues because of failed relationships.
Best Treatment Option
Talk therapy is the best treatment option available.
I would also like to suggest reading this book.
What is Human Genetics
In my opinion, The medical establishments always seem to blame Genetics for a lot of the problems we suffer from today. Well, I personally; do not put much faith in that. I agree that we inherit certain Genes from our parents such as eye and hair color and maybe a few other things perhaps.
But in my opinion, most of the emotional and medical problems we suffer from today can be traced back to childhood, and the way we; were raised.
If you are a quiet and seemingly shy person and Introvert so to speak; you were probably taught as a child not to speak unless spoken too.
We are all born with Cancer Cells in our bodies; whether they become active or not depends on our lifestyles and what we eat.
If you are a person who is a Bully, more than likely you were raised in an abusive family and treat others the way you, were treated.
If you are a Diabetic, more than likely it is because of the diet you have been eating your whole life.
If you are a Drama Queen, or King, you were probably ignored as a child, and the only way you could get attention was to act out.
We all have our own opinions and these are mine, so take them however you wish. But none of these things have anything to do with Genetics or Genes as far as I am concerned.
