You have probably watched a soap-opera at least once in your life. It’s those tv-series that include one or two families, the members of which engage in all sorts of drama: from marrying and divorcing each other, to getting in jail etc..

We bring soap-opera in our lives.

A persons mind always needs to have something to care for: that’s its function. At the same time, most people’s lives can be considered boring. That’s why instinctively we try to create situations that could fit in a soap-opera script. We tend to complicate the simplest of things, just to spice up a tasteless life.

I consider it masochism.

Think about an ordinary teenage couple. The teenage example is better because it’s the part of our lives where we need the most of the spicing-up. So, it’s common that one of the two falls in love with someone else. A nice and simple way to deal with this would be to just admit it to the other and leave the current erotic relationship. But no, that never happens. Instead, he/she would keep the double relationship, while crying at night for having no option and would use words of epic proportions of pain to describe the situation.

Things are always quite simple. We make them difficult.

Between two friends, there could be a situation where the one does something that the other does not approve. The simple and nice way to deal with this would be to not deal with it in the first place. Instead, the “soap-opera” way would be for the friend to behave like he was betrayed and then speak about the ideals of friendship and about what he has done in the past about the other. And then he could perplex things even more by doing himself more things that promote “soap-opera” reactions.

“Soap-opera” is not bad.

No, it’s interesting! But you must always understand that you play a role. Never take these situations seriously. Next time that you get yourself into a situation that seems complicated, take a look of it from a third-person view (press F11 to change the camera :p ) and try to find signs that you cause it yourself. If you manage to set the boundaries between “soap-opera” and real life drama, you could spice up your life and at the same time never be unhappy.

The golden rule.

Do you feel unhappy for some reason? Do you feel that you engage in some complicated situation? Stay a bit back and smile. Nothing can be more serious than your happiness.
