I've been part of a local sports community for a number of years. I used to love it, but over the past year or so I find myself disliking it because of some of the people. There's so much drama and politics, that they make the sport more frustrating than enjoyable. People put each other down behind their backs, spread rumors.. I'm sure you all know what I'm talking about. I know drama and politics are part of every community, and I try to stay neutral because I don't want it affecting my enjoyment of the sport. I could leave that community for a while and join a different one, or just keep going and being frustrated by it. I don't want to get burnt out though, and I feel like I might be heading that way due to the drama.
What do you all do to cope with drama and politics?
