Dear Miriam,

How do I let my partner know that he is giving gifts that HE wants, rather than things I want, especially when the gifts are given with much enthusiasm and love?

Signed,
Whose gift is it anyway?

Right now a lot of changes are happening with myself and my close friends — getting married, buying homes, having babies. Since we're all on about same timeline, I guess it's inevitable that some people feel the need to act competitive around these changes. Personally, I find this exhausting. What a waste of time and energy. Do I approach the offending friends? How do I make sure that we don't poison our friendships with this petty nonsense?
