Life is a competition, but it’s not all about winning and losing

The older I get, the more I’m aware of life being a competition, which is ironic as it is a lot more subtle than it used to be.

Social media most definitely doesn’t help – always encouraging you to have the most likes, friends or followers. Success has become a number, not a feeling. View Post
