“Compete with yourself “
The only competition one should have is with the latest version of your own self. Think of becoming better from what you were a day before, may be the way you talk, or the way you could paint, cook, read or may be any skill. Everyday move a little ahead, take a step ahead.
You stay in the same place, if you don’t move. Step by step keep moving. Stay strong. Love yourself, take rest when needed but keep moving.
