Friend stealing part of my identity :s

Postby Feathers » Sat Mar 19, 2011 5:20 pm

Basically, I'm a very inconsistent person. I can't keep a hobby or an interest long enough to get good at it, but one time I decided to memorise Pi to 60 decimal places until I got bored of it... But ever since then if I quote Pi to 60 decimal places, people will be impressed... I'm not really good at much so impressing people with stuff like this and the fact I can solve a Rubik's cube makes me feel good and makes me feel like I have a 'thing'.

Now my friend has decided that HE is going to learn pi to a lot of decimal places and quote it at people to impress them... He's currently at 50 and catching up quick... I feel like he is stealing my 'thing' and now it won't be as impressive because he can do it too, and will soon outdo me, and I don't have much else to impress people with because I'm too unstable in interests to get good at anything :s. I'm so pissed at him. I know this is a probably BPD overreaction but I'm pretty mad at him and feeling a bit invalidated myself!

End rant :s.

That would piss me off too. Why can't he find his own thing instead of copying you? I think you have a right to be mad.

On the contrary, I do copy people all the time. However, it's rarely anyone that I know. Usually someone on tv or a distant acquaintance. Maybe your friend feels boring. I feel as though I'm boring unless I'm taking on the identity of someone else.

Maybe you should tell him how you're feeling.
