Do you know any divas?
He struts into the room like he owns it, all pouting lips and flashing eyes. You know he's probably more trouble than he's worth, but you can't help but be intrigued by his style and confidence. He's daring, drop-dead gorgeous and dangerous. He’s a fucking diva.
When dealing with divas, you'll notice there are varying degrees — from the guy who occasionally makes a catty remark to the rip-roaring diva who's always in a tizzy over something. Basically, a diva can be defined as a someone who is self-centered, vain, overly dramatic, and confrontational. He’s always making a mountain out of a molehill, and trampling down others whenever it suits him.
His spark of wit and energy are very attractive; his moody misbehavior is not. But can you have one without the other?
Definitely. Divas can change, evolving into kinder, more caring people over time. All it takes is a little patience and ingenuity on your part.
How to deal with a diva up in yo’ face? Walk away.
Kenny Rogers put it best when he trivially sang, “...know when to hold 'em, know when to fold ’em, know when to walk away, know when to run.” In some rare situations, you may come across incurable divas, whose poor conduct doesn’t even change slightly with time, regardless of your persistence.
When dealing with divas, keep the main rules in mind: don’t set a precedent by creating your own scene. Target specific bad behavior and call them out on it; be firm when you have to be, and use kindness effectively. Also, know when to hit the escape button. Divas are always challenging, but with any luck, you can train that tiger to act like a kitty.
