Have you heard the saying
"Stop stealing my thunder"?
I don't think I have heard it since high school, but those are some of the most impressionable years of our lives and they actually shape us into the people we are today.
Accusing someone of stealing your spotlight or thinking that there is not enough room for someone else to shine if you are shining means you are focusing on a lack of something. When you think about whether or not there are enough compliments to go around it sounds a little absurd, doesn't it?
