Competition. It's a word that makes many or us very edgy, and it's a situation that we have probably been living with since we were very small.
For some people competition is a thrill, a stimulation, a challenge. For others it's a source of sadness and anger and apprehension. For still others it's a mixture of all those things.
It's not possible to go through life without competing. As one woman told me, "Competition is part of put everyday life, whether we're competing for a job, or on the soccer field, or for love." l
There are many kinds of competition, to be sure. But I think that love does have something to do with them all. In fact, I believe that if we've ever wanted someone's love then we've known what competition really means.
