    Is she lying or telling the truth? If she's exaggerating e.g. Saying her child is a genius when they're not... Call her on it. Say something like, 'really? I hadn't noticed that?' But if she is telling the truth maybe she's just sharing her life rather than being competitive and it is you who is putting the competition in there. I have noticed I feel that way with some friends who I feel have it easier than me, especially my sister, but it is my issue not theirs iykwim?

    I think I'll:

    - make some of those dolls you punch needles into (what are they called again?)
    - take weekly visits to a shooting range
    - wear dark sunglasses so it's not obvious when my mind wanders off when they're talking

    Yes them. I'm just at a point where I'm over it, can't be bothered putting on appearances anymore.

    I didn't realise my life needed improving.

    I suppose everyone's life could improve though!

    Is she actually saying things to you or about you to put you and your life down or is it just that they post on FB about how happy they are with their life?

    I'm not invalidating your feelings or anything, I'm just asking because I know that
    A) when my life hasn't been going the way I want it to go and I've seen people posting stuff up about how wonderful their life is, it's got me down in the past. Not because I particularly wanted what they had, but because I was over sensitive to feeling like I was down on my luck and everyone else wasn't. I would just think "oh, rack off with your happy life!" Haha. If I knew the person well or they were someone I thought was a bit of a bragger, I would tend to take it personally, but in actual fact, they probably weren't thinking of me at all when they wrote it!
    B) I'm probably one of those people who post too happy, I'm loving my life stuff on FB fairly often - and that's not because I'm trying to make out that my life's perfect when it's not, it's just because I'm insanely happy with my life. And I most certainly don't do it to hurt anyone else or make them feel bad about their life, so I hope they don't take it that way! :/ Crap happens in my life and I don't try to hide it, but I'm just not the type to use FB to moan about those things. I can't stand people airing their dirty laundry on FB, same as I wouldn't argue with my DH in public I guess.

    If it's only on FB that they're bothering you, why not just hide them from your newsfeed, you don't have to unfriendly them, just hide them. I've done that with people who make cryptic attention seeking statuses, because they're the ones who bother me
