People Who Make Everything a Psychodrama
September 4, 2017 6:00pm CST
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.

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.
