Ok, this is an assignment.

No, wait, maybe it’s more of a request…

A plea?

A bewildered shot in the dark maybe.

What do you do when people insist on competing?

This is not about my family, our best friends, our partners or our co-workers, so exhale and read on šŸ˜‰

Seriously, what do you do when you find yourself in a situation wherein people are measuring themselves against you and foisting this bit of information or that on you so as to assert some sort of dominance?

Do you lavish praise? Reassure them through your words that the focus is on them, that they are in fact the most amazing people of all? Because honestly, it exhausts me, I have what I want, am where I want to be and wish everyone well.

I know the answer is you suck it up and deal, just wondering what you’ve done.
