Full of jealousy, Competative....anyone else?

I have a "friend" who OPENLY ADMITS she's a "super mom". I feel like I have to compete with her just to knock her off her high horse....
Seriously...who BRAGS about being great at stuff? If ever I share with her stuff I've done she always counters with a put down or a belittling comment!
What do we do with these kinds of people?
I know I'm not perfect in ANY WAY but really irks me because she "KNOWS" she is!

  • Me & my friends are far from perfect and we openly admit it. However, lol, my husband recently met an old high school friend who he now works with and his wife is that way. She also enrolled her dd into cheer and now she is on the same team as my dd. My dd has been in cheer all year, and is friends with all the other girls and her cousin is also on the squad. All the cheer leaders also play softball so us moms have a year round relationship and understanding to support ALL of our dds not just one. This lady though acts like her poo doesnt smell. She has come to realize you cant walk around that way and is now trying to be my friend and I dont know if thats going to happen. I cannot really handle those sorts of women. I know for a fact this womans life is far from perfect (my dh tells me stuff her dh tells him). I think just writing off your friend might be a good thing, or keeping your distance?

  • Why would you waste your time being friends with someone like her?

  • I know someone like that..she competes over our kids more than anything, though, and it saddens me more than pisses me off. Why? Because she lies about her kid's accomplishments and milestones, then I catch her in the lie later. I feel sorry for her kid, cause she can't stand that he isn't doing things my Son does and tries to say her kid is doing them when he isn't. She also acts like she is the best mom around but I have witnessed and been told - by her - otherwise. She is a great actress, has everyone fooled but me. And she wonders why I barely speak to her.

  • Yes I know people like this and I stay away from them, no one is perfect and I get easily annoyed with people like your friend so I choose to be happy and keep my distance.

  • Stop being her friend? Doesn't sound like she's much of one, regardless!

  • I've ran into people like that thru the yrs in various places. I think they act that way cause they know they're not perfect, but try to play themselves up 2 be. I guess they think that if they tell themselves, & other people that, they can actually make themselves believe it. Ignore & avoid her when you can. I got to were I'd just give them THE LOOK & not respond. Eventually they quit.
