In a group of people, some type of conflict or occasional argument is typically inevitable. However, the stereotypical high school drama you see in movies and shows is usually unrealistic. People can avoid such drama by surrounding yourself with the right kind of people.

Everyone has been told this since they were little kids: you become who you hang around. A lot of the times, people tend to argue against this (I used to as well) but I have discovered over the years that it is true whether you intend for it to happen or not. Naturally, when you are constantly with people who have certain habits you tend to unknowingly develop those same habits.

A lot of people in high school complain about how there is constant drama. Personally, though, have never experienced any big drama or fights in my two years in high school, and I know many other people who haven’t either. If you’re finding yourself involved in drama a lot of the time, you might be hanging around the wrong crowd. People who are always arguing bring unnecessary negativity and stress in your life that you don’t need; you could be directing your energy toward much more important things.

In addition to negativity and stress, drama brings you to eventually dislike more and more people. In my opinion, the more people you hold grudges against and dislike, the more negative energy you hold. If you come across as a negative person, less people are going to want to be around you because negativity holds people back from prospering and becoming the best version of themselves. Therefore, if you are around people who tend to be caught up in drama a lot, you could be holding yourself back.

Occurrences in your life all depend on who and what you choose to surround yourself with. By surrounding yourself with people with more important interests than the typical high school drama, one will most likely find yourself thinking the same as them.
