Quote by Lorna Luft
I had grown up accustomed to living a life of high drama.
This quote suggests that the person speaking has been exposed to a constantly eventful or exciting lifestyle since their childhood. They have become accustomed to a life full of intense emotions, conflicts, or unexpected events.
