Friend Copies Hobbies and Style

Group Therapy: Copycat Friend?

This question comes from a Group Therapy post in our TrèsSugar Community. Add your advice in the comments!

I'm wondering if anyone else has ever had this problem, beyond their teenage girl years — lately I feel as though a close friend is starting to copy my activities and hobbies. There's nothing wrong with shared activities (many people share hobbies, after all!) but I feel like the things that made me original she is now determined to also do — photography, blogging, cooking, marathoning, getting a tattoo to celebrate being 30 . . .

I feel like there soon won't be anything I do that she doesn't also do . . . and I know, it sounds ridiculous to feel like my identity is being threatened, I'm not a kid anymore. Any advice?
