Is insecurity and competition two sides of the same coin? Does one lead to other? They say anything in excess is not good and certainly if these are the sides than definitely not!
Trying to nail down exactly what is it that prompts one to compete? Is it insecurity alone or are there others like showdown? Things like wanting to prove a point? When one does succeed in trying to show the other their equivalent standing. ..how are we to react to such people..circumstances and realities?
Ignoring doesn't sound so simple..accepting also is not easy.
