How To Explain That You Are Simply 'Dramatic'

A quality that is overlooked by humankind.

How To Explain That You Are Simply 'Dramatic'


Why is she looking at me?

Hmph. This girl...

Is she gonna try me, or what?

Girl, if you don't get the f....



Her friend was just walking up from behind me. False Alarm."

This is just a snippet of dialogue that may or may not have actually occurred in my wired-off-apple-juice brain (I drink apple juice out of wine glasses for the aesthetic). Let me formally introduce myself. Hi, my name is Drama. I live for it, breathe for it, and can't be without it. You may be thinking, "Oh, she's just a drama queen." Maybe you're judging me as the bitch with the mean face and the bad attitude. I'm here to tell you that you're right, and for all the right reasons.

I was always a dramatic child, I grew up through a very dramatic adolescent phase, and now I remain a dramatic individual. I should've joined my high school's theater program. Sigh. I would have really thrived. I love 'I' statements. I need all the attention. Sharpay Evans from the High School Musical movies was my IDOL.

Maybe you're thinking that I sound "stuck up" or "self-centered."

Hell yes.

I love myself, and I will never apologize for it. I demand excellence. My mother (an equally dramatic individual) never allowed anyone to take advantage of her; therefore, I will NEVER allow anyone to push me over. She never allowed me to become privileged, yet we both achieved a certain level of coveted flamboyance.

The word "Dramatic" means to be sudden and striking (at least according to the Merriam-Webster dictionary). I walk in to a room and I want to strike fear into your heart. No, I don't want you to fear me but I want you to fear what will happen if you mess with me. For me, being dramatic is a quality overlooked. It is a quality that is downplayed and used as an insult. That ends now. Being dramatic is the only way to get ahead. Being dramatic helps boost your confidence. Being dramatic lets others know that you are vibrant, alive, and unafraid.

Being dramatic doesn't mean that you don't love others. It doesn't mean that you litter the streets with golden trash and it certainly doesn't mean that you're a self centered jerk that can only comprehend situations that pertain to you and you only.

So, you wonder, "How do I explain to others that I'm just dramatic?"

You don't. Let it be.

If you've reached the title of dramatic, you're doing it right.

"All the world's a stage and most of us are desperately unrehearsed."

Playwright Sean O'Casey thought it best to remain dramatic. In life, you'll never be given a script, so you better go big or go home.

According to Katy Perry, "Baby You're a Firework." I don't know if she was referring to the Fourth of July when she was referencing fireworks, but this song has allowed this generation to rejoice. The song "Firework" allows people of all ages to appreciate the lyrics, as the song brings forth a positive state of mind. Unfortunately, just like the song, not every knows what the Fourth of July is actually for. Many just assume it is that one time of year you get to spend time barbecuing and see fireworks light up the sky. Even though many are not aware of the American historical significance, this holiday has annually encouraged people to come together happily, which could very much be the importance of it.

The patriots of the American Revolution aren't the only ones who gave us the rights to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.

10 Revolutionary Women To Remember This Fourth Of July

Independence Day is almost upon us, which means that for most Americans, it'll be time to bust out the lawn chairs and grills, gather around family and friends, and praise our history through patriotic garb and grand fireworks displays. It's the one day of the year where everyone forgets their political biases or historic inaccuracies, at least for a while, to look back on the hazy, illustrious history of the United States.

But, while we celebrate what people like George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, and Patrick Henry did for this country, they are not the only ones who embodied the very virtues that our nation loves to advocate for. This Fourth of July, here are ten American women who history tends to forget, despite the groundbreaking things they did for their country.
