com·pe·ti·tion –noun
1. the act of competing; rivalry for supremacy

leads to

ag·gra·va·tion - noun
1. an increase in intensity, seriousness, or severity; act of making worse

and is

waste·ful –adjective
3. devastating or destructive

These are three words that should be PASTED (as in GLUED PERMANENTLY) unto the fridge (or foreheads) of a lot of women.

I am sure that until the day I die, I will carry this question with me. Why the competition? Why do most women feel the need to size themselves up by other women in completely different circumstances?

I just don't get it. There are so many fabulous friendships, fellowship, and ministering that could go on if MOST women would just stop the competition. It is sad to the point of being tragic if you think about it.

If you find yourself doing this, I have to ask you exactly WHAT it is that you need to be superior over before you can finally just STOP?

i completely agree.

for the most part I don't but occasionally it slips in! Why oh why? It can be self destructive!
