Can someone please give me some advice on how to tolerate competitive people? Because I can't stand them it seems. Yet I know a few!
One of my closest friends for example, always (I feel) tries to one-up me. It never bothered me before but it really sh.its me now for some reason! Lately she is worse, always facebook bragging with hidden inuendos at times, and being a bit too 'happy' about life and her perfect world and husband (I feel she does this around me much more than she used to) she always tries to make me feel like I'm a charity case simply because I'm a single mum.
Theres also other people who always try to negate my stuff or compete on everything.
Im just a bit over these people lately. Why do they do it?? Help me understand the mentality.
