crazy, weird, UNIQUE!

Have you ever had THAT ONE PERSON  in your life that just continuously one-ups you?  I mean, they don’t REALLY one-up you most the time, but they like to think they do.  They say things like “I could do that better, while sleeping.” or “I make the perfect boiled egg and your just jealous that you can’t.”  How ridiculous these statements are, right?  Those are ACTUAL ones I’ve heard pretty recently.  The people behind those statements just make me laugh.  I guess laughter is definitely how I deal with just about any situation.  

I’m not certain why people find these kind of statements necessary.  I’m not sure why they have to prove they are better in every situation they are in.  I’m so glad I don’t wear myself out doing that.  I mean, I do know I’m pretty good at some things.  I have talents God gave me and I’m very aware that I have these abilities, but I’m also aware of the fact that no one likes a bragger.  You can be good at something and confident in your ability AND STILL be humble about it.  

That is it for today.  🙂

  1. It’s called INSECURITY. That’s why they do it.

  2. I have been at the tail end of some of these. (different contexts of course) They are subtle put downs and mostly come from covert aggressive manipulators. Another term for them is shaming techniques – or whip statements.
