Recently, my best friend and I were talking about this devil named Competition that’s running rapid and wreaking havoc among women and their relationships around the world. Sad part is, this isn’t a new thing. The spirit of competition is something that every woman young and old can relate to in one way or another. Therefore, we began talking exchanging stories and discussing how as twenty something’s on a university campus, it seems as if a woman cannot escape being in competition with another woman, even if that competitive spirit is one sided and/or unintentional.
“I’m a firm believer in God when it comes to roles and opportunities and I believe that He gives those opportunities. I also believe that what’s mine is mine and nobody can take that away from me… And I believe that what belongs to someone else, belongs to them, and I can’t take it from them.”
And though many may view competition as something that just exists and is meant to get over, to that friend I was talking to, it was so much more than that. My friend and I had began to see the damage that constantly competing against another woman actually does. We begin seeing (not among us two, but in others), within our inner circle the way competition had somehow barged in and began destroying friendships that were once valued and cherished. I need clarity and insight on the issue, so I reached out to my good friend, Meagan Good to talk about it.
