I am strangely a highly competitive person. But the sad thing about it is I sometimes am competitive with myself.
Like today at lunch time I had amazing delicious Chinese food,that I had been craving for 3 weeks; but, during my meal, I was three quarters of the way done and the voice of reason said:
“Stop now, because you are content. You can finish it later if you become hungry again.” (Imagine this voice as my angelic side.)
However, there on the other shoulder sprung my highly competitive side.
“No! You want and must finish it now! So, you can proclaim your supreme accomplishment of completion!”
Sadly, I usually have these types of conversations in mind, but rarely do I speak them out loud.
It is ridiculous; I was having a competition based on food with myself.
My competitive side won the match and I finished my meal. I strangely feel like I did accomplish something and I dominated my competitor. But now I get to listen to that angel of reason laughing at me as I sit and suffer through my bloated feelings.
Why do I have to be SO competitive?
Maybe I need to exercise more…
