Karpman Drama Triangle

Karpman’s Drama Triangle defines unhealthy relationships where individuals take on different roles: Persecutor, Rescuer, and Victim.

These roles are fueled by guilt and blame.

  • Persecutor: blames and criticizes others
  • Rescuer: enables and takes care of others
  • Victim: feels powerless and blames others

Stop The Drama

Stop The Drama

We all have the power to stop the drama in our relationship and take control.

Let's stop the cycle of superiority and inferiority.

Stop being a victim by taking these actions:

  1. Stop acting like 'poor me': don't ignore your own needs and don't always take the blame.
  2. Recognize your role in the relationship: accept that you need to change.
  3. Face your fears: confront the issues that are causing the drama.
  4. Take better actions: don't let the drama consume you and your relationships.

Remember, taking control of the drama does not mean you care any less about people.
