Silent Competition...!

Silent Competition...!

Dear Mom, living in a competitive society causes me so much pain.
But, I feel happy when I achieve my goals, it brings a smile to my face.
I observed that the individuals in my surroundings are highly competitive.
My desire to help and inspire others is reflected in my effort to reach my full potential.
In our society, people often adopt a competitive mindset when interacting with one another.
To achieve their goals, people often tend to neglect their family members.
Lately, there has been a lot of discussion about the possibility of extending working hours.
In an environment where there is no competition, it becomes easier to work for longer hours,
No institution runs without competition, in reality, it pains a lot.
When we are alive we make many places for reservation slots based on our caste.
Healthy competition is really good, it makes one strive to be better.
People who possess a competitive spirit are more likely to achieve success in the future.
Life can be difficult and achieving peace of mind is not always easy.
We sometimes feel happy when we are alone, without being busy
No one on this planet has experienced or reported life in the womb.
Mom, you gave me my true identity without competition, until I reached the tomb.
You worked tirelessly to provide complete care without any competition.
Mom, when you are not around, I feel lonely. Miss you, Mom….!
