Life is drama that in its deepest sense, means that regular, bad and good things happen. Human, to defend ourselves against this uncertainty, we generate melodramas, which are like small games or plays where the argument is fixed, nothing new ever happens and the actors are always the same or similar. Robert Thomson insists that this is the case. One of the criteria of mental health that we handle is the mobility of roles and ideologies. This means, that should not be forgotten that all buy and sell, everyone laughed and we cry, we are all victims and executioners, etc. This mobility of roles and ideologies, is healthy, makes us human and therefore dramatic. The problem arises when we specialize in any of these roles (e.g.
victim). Then we moved from drama to melodrama, where everything is static and repetitive with the intention of encapsulated us in a comfortable and safe vidita. Once created a particular melodrama, unconsciously seek melodramatic actors or accomplices, for able to represent it and keep it in cartel as much as possible.

They are those couples where in reality never nothing happens, they passed from anger to reconciliation with great ease, never arrive to join or separate entirely. It is as if they were joined by a rigid rod of a meter in length, so that if one approaches, the other moves. The game is an eternal ni Contigo ni sin ti. We know that human beings have a great resistance to change, despite the fact that the only constant in life is change.
Therefore, the melodramas served to have the illusion that does not change, that it freezes time and that everything is under control. Our psyche needs those melodramas to keep anxiety at bearable levels. It is as if one is going to see for the first time a movie where we don’t know what will happen at the end.
