People Who Make Everything a Psychodrama

There are some people who make their lives into a constant maze of hidden meanings. Especially when they are so insignificant . Give you an example. A friend of mine, who lives in New York, puts some money on my cell phone every month so I can call him. There's another friend who puts no money on my phone but expects me to call him. Now, the chap who puts money on my phone, I call him every Sunday. After I speak to him, I might call the other friend, just for a 'hello/goodbye' because this one has nothing much to say that I need to hear. So Chap One didn't send any credit to my phone, promised to do so, but didn't. So I didn't call. Chap Two sends me this psycho-drama email inferring all sorts of reasons why I didn't call. To be honest, I read the email with half an eye because having already gone through his twisted mental constructs I don't need a refresher. So I wrote back, told Chap Two why I didn't call. Chap Two then writes about Hurricane Irma. Does he apologise? Does he give an explanation why my non-call, instead of being equated to lack of funds is made into an enormous psycho-drama..(please don't ask for details because I didn't read it, don't want to...) Now I Give Thanks that my brain is not so screwed up that if I didn't get a call would infer all sorts of psychological reasons why. I'd assume the person forgot or didn't have the cash, or whatever... but certainly wouldn't go instantly off the deep end. I really have to do a serious culling of persons who fall into the 'friend' category.

@TiarasOceanView I assume the most simple explanations. You are late? Caught in traffic. Not that you wanted me to sit here like a fool ...

Those who want drama everywhere won't stop this behavior it seems. If they are in the area, we can count on their behavior running away with itself!

Everything you do and say with some of them is analysed. I try to avoid them. Doesn't work all the time.

They aren't good. I mean if you were to arrange to meet with them at 10 am and were caught in traffic they would text you at 10:10 making all sorts of accusations as to why you made them go to the meeting place.

Yes, there is one like that in my family. Interesting challenge to deal with.

I have one in my family and over the years I have reached the stage of indifference. I can expect that any thing will set him off. Even if I am unaware of it, it will set him into a long analysis as to where and why and when.

@tallawah A challenging mindset, but I find your right, just accept that is how they will respond .... nothing you can do to change it

Nobody pays on my phone bills so I only call those I want to speak to.

Exactly. Ex2 puts money on my phone, I call Ex2. After, a two minute call here or there, but it's optional.

@RubyHawk Do you know I often leave it home alone? It is permanently on silent. It isn't my leash.

How nice of you having that friend sending you some money just to call him, awesome seldom heard.Maybe there was a valid reason why he stopped sending you money or load. Better email only to save some.How are you now?

no... the person who sends me money is a different person. 'A' sends me money to call him. Sometimes after I speak with 'A' I'll make a short call to 'B' or 'C'. But it's off hand, it isn't a weekly thing. I'm fine and you?
