  1. Hey! I honestly think this is a cool channel and i love the introvert videos but i kinda think the google translate – like voice is kind of annoying. Mayby do a voice / face reveal at 100K subscribers?

  2. Cut them short! They feed of your attention. You will never hurt them but put them beyond own boundary which should be a really wide line in between you and them 🙂 Loving your channel in all ways!

  3. What if they don't listen to anyone but themselves, twisting the truth with lies and others that encourage said behavior?

  4. The best way to deal with these type of people is to just walk AWAY. They thrive off the attention of others. If they spread rumours, so what? People will know they're lying sooner or later depending on your personality and the way you carry yourself.

  5. Drama queens won't/don't change anymore than any other mentally ill person. You are mistaken to believe you can alter their behavior. Don't engage with them. They will think you do not "care". Which is not true but you need to protect your own sanity. When drawn in to a 'drama', breathe, center yourself and rise above this shallow attempt to drag you through the dirt. Do not let your ego follow this challenge! In the end you will feel happier with yourself for not taking the "low" road.
    There is no "winning" in this. There is only finding peace in your own action/reaction.

    God be with you. Love can prevail…

  6. Drama. Is another word for Toxic People avoid these high strung Mentally incapable Sad Characters.They toy with you and need too much attention!.

  7. #10. Do not get cornered by them. Always have an exit strategy available.

  8. Yes I am really in a tough pickle! I live with an high explosive personality!# I do not have any resources to move out!# I would of roted away if I dolid not meet this high volital princess #!
