imitation: flattering or annoying?

May 30, 2007 1:12am CST
hi guys. now this is something really debatable because some would say that imitation is the best for of flattery while some would say that imitation is ripping one person of his or her individuality and originality. now, honestly, i would have to say that imitation annoys me. i mean not in all ways, but in the case when someone imitates me - the way i dress, the way i style my hair, the way i laugh, my facial expressions, my bags, and outfits. you see, i have this friend of mine who seems to really admire me so much and she keeps on buying whatever i buy, she keeps on asking me about every detail of my life and before i know it, she is already copying me! i am really getting annoyed already because i want to have my originality and now it seems that she's ripping it off from me. what can you advice me on this?

You should be thankful that someone admire you and wants to be a duplicate of you. You can be an icon to the future generation.

well, yeah, you have a point there but you know, it just gets kinda annoying in the long run. i swear, i feel as if i dont have my own identity anymore. lolz. have you ever tried that? oh, by the way, thanks for your compliment. :)
