this life ain't a competition
on my mind: how easy it is to get wrapped up in this idea of competition against each other. survival of the fittest, competing for grades, etc. i've come to the conclusion that it's not a healthy mindset. for some it can be a method of motivation, but not me. i find that in this mindset, when i don't get that A on a test or paper and someone flaunts their perfect score, i feel not so swell. the point is, someone's score shouldn't matter. it's about me. it's about the fact that i did my best. that's what matters. life is about learning and improving, not showing people up. talk about pride. we can all flaunt our successes or embrace every ones' abilities.
