The only person you are in competition with is yourself!
Sometimes the only person you are in competition with is yourself, your style is yours and sometimes you do not need anyone to understand why you like what you like. It may feel that others are in competition with you but this is not the case, you may feel you need to look better than the next person because of your perceived competition meanwhile the other person maybe so nervous for their interview or a big assignment, they have family, relationship issues they are dealing with and have not noticed you, the only person you are competing with daily is yourself.
Sometimes nobody cares but you! We all share similar struggles, do the best you can and believe things will work out, the efforts you make if they are your best then believe it is enough and others will believe too, the only person who judges you the most is you, you can be your own worst enemy, the standards you perceive are only in your mind and not in the minds of others, those who take the time to judge you are those who judge themselves with worse so why let it affect you.
