There is nothing wrong with being competitive for the right reasons and in the right setting. 

But there are those who are competing with others to the point that they end up only tormenting consequences because of their own insecurities.

I used to know a woman who thought she had to be one better than me . If I was sick, she was sicker if I bought something nice hers was more expensive.

I find that Social Media is becoming a platform for contests, how many friends, likes or compliments is one thing. 

The other extreme is competitors with photoshopped pictures, and the fantasy stories of living like a celebrity. They outdo each other by buying the latest merchandise only to find themselves at a loss.

I am not rich, famous, stunningly beautiful, and don’t pretend to be. I am just me. I like to promote and share wellbeing. I also love to share some memories and catch up on friends’ posts. 

There are some posts that may not be the kind of content that interests me, but I just don’t comment. I would never leave an unkind comment on a post unless it went against my guidelines. 


I am happy for everyone who succeeds in this life, as it is a tough world, we are living in. 

Even when some of us have had the odds stacked against us, since we were born, we never gave up, we kept fighting to become who we are today. 

We proved the majority wrong; we were never that stupid, those who branded us were the imbeciles.

The majority of my friends on Facebook, are real people, with real lives, they are mature enough to know that I would accept them whether rich or poor. 

We do not need to compete, as we are busy encouraging and supporting each other. 

Life is throwing enough difficult challenges at us, instead of trying to break  each other down, why don’t we build each other up.

In everything there must be a balance.
