Am I A One-Upper?
I read an advice column today with a question concerning what to do with a friend who likes to one-up. I started thinking that I might sometimes come across that way, especially on blogs. In my comments on friends' blogs I tend to share similar experiences I've had or my children have had. My intention is not to distract from any of your experiences, but rather to connect through our similarities. I truly enjoy hearing (reading) your thoughts and shared experiences in comments to my posts, and that is what I try to do when I comment. I feel more a part of your lives when you share them with me in the blogosphere. So I hope you know I'm not playing a comparison game, and I'd really appreciate any of your stories that relate to my life too.
