Strength is the goal in all areas of life. We want to be the best, the strongest, no matter what it is. But that’s impossible. Sadly, we’re human, and someone will always be better at it than us. For instance, I’m pretty competitive, and whenever someone is better that me in dance or something, I beat myself up for not being able to do it. I get mad at myself for no good reason, and that’s not right. I should push myself to do the best I can do, not the best some other girl can do. Comparison can ruin a person because you will never be that person you are comparing yourself to; it’s just impossible. Everyone has different strengths and weaknesses. We should embrace and build up our strengths and work on our weaknesses. God made you original and distinctive, so who are you to argue? 

But let every man prove his own work, and then shall he have rejoicing in himself alone, and not in another. -Galatians 6:4, KJV

    I definitely can get competitive in certain things, and I work on being humble, thankful for being part of something, and working on sharing the joy of another. 🙂 Great piece!
