I’m on another rant today that I have to get off my chest. Why is it that other people have to try to one up you on how bad you feel? How pathetic is that? I made one simple comment recently that I was just getting over strep throat and the person I was talking to had to try and one up me on that! “Well, I had this and this and blah, blah, blah and at least you don’t feel like blah, blah, blah. I can top that – I had strep throat X times last year.”
It reminds me of the fishing and hunting tales that men will discuss. I refuse to be a part of that and it is so irritating to me!
For one, it is not good emotionally to play into those games and it can be very draining and our bodies cannot handle to be drained anymore. I am not a child and I refuse to take part in childish behavior, so I try to stay clear as much as possible. We have enough to deal with and do not need this added frustration on top of everything else.
Okay, I feel better now that I got that out!
