Competition Has Two Faces
My husband and I usually play Farkle over afternoon coffee. We have a bit of a competition going (I think I’m winning). ;) That said, we reserve our competition for games and such.
The rest of the time we are on the same team and we consciously work not to be competitive. Even when we have a difference of opinion, we are on the same team working together to sort it out. We support each other’s dreams and when one of us succeeds, we both succeed.
Competition has a healthy and an unhealthy face.
Stay on the same team with your sweetie over the important things. Talk it through with him if you feel you are beginning to compete in unhealthy ways.
Teamwork makes the dream work. John C. Maxwell
