    Would you still be in a friendship if she constantly tries to compare herself with you?

    Sometimes envy can get in the way of a friendship. Would you want to be in a friendship  if the other person buys what you have and wants to be like you?

      I think the same  she is most insecure about everything in her life. Even though she has a rich husband she can't stand to see her friend live better. Thank you

    The other way round. My fb classmates buy everthing that i wanted, owns the things that i wanted, go to places i yearn to go. Hence, i kept myself liw profile. Nobody try to follows me because i am broke and not as rich as they are.

    Devika,
    Friends do compare themselves with each other. It's unavoidable. It's okay to be alike in many ways. That's just what makes friendship fun. You might remember that feeling from when you were a kid.

      I like your answer but I know of someone who pretends to be a friend to another and is insecure in her thoughts. I do know what you mean. Thank you.

    My apology please. As a "friend" (obviously not 'herself') If my friend, really a genuine friend would act in lack of self-esteem and insecurity, I would continue to be "me",- his friend , allow  him to 'copy' anything of my originality, character and spiritual superiority using any given opportunity to discus intellectual wisdom and lasting values every single person has responsibility to develop based on natural talents. Time will show then if we both meant to be and to remain friends of looong time.

      You are so right! Insecure and and lack of self-esteem has the better of her being. Thank you
