I'm just curious as to why women seem to be in constant competition with each other? This might seem like a juvenile question but it's a juvenile problem that seems to follow a lot of girls into adulthood. We compare homes, children, husbands, jobs, clothes, hair, how much we can accomplish in a day, talents...the list goes on and on, especially when it comes to looks. We put ourselves down for not being like other women. We build ourselves up for doing/being better than someone else. I guess men do this too but certainly not in the same way women do. I would like everyone's input. What's your opinion? Why do we do this to ourselves and others? And, just to clarify, I haven't had something happen to me to make me write this. I'm just curious. I think I might throw strange questions out here every now and then and see what you all think.
