I have a friend who is driving me to distraction. I am trying to understand why he behaves as he does but I would welcome thoughts and advice. He has this habit of "talking up" everyone and everything related to him. They are always the best at everything they do, they know celebrities, they mix with important people, they have outstanding skills. I know for a fact that most of what he says is fabricated. It also extends to other things, if you cut your finger, then he has cut his hand ten times worse. If you have a cold, he has had bird flu. He told us his niece had cancer, but it was only an abnormal smear test. Its so frustrating. He buys expensive items and then brags about them. Often doesn't even use them but just likes to talk about having them. He told us his wife was the head of a government department and had a really important job but I know she was just an ordinary employee. He talks about things that happened years ago and embellishes his role in them so its all about him even though I know the truth. He seems to be getting worse the older he gets. As for normal people who are not associated with him in any way, they are all idiots and morons. I tend to feel that he is doing this to boost his self esteem but I am at the point where it is hard to be around him. Any ideas please?
