Competition is healthy but rivalry isn’t. Rivalry has the potential to destroy families, friendships and several blossoming relations. It gives rise to jealousy which eats up a human brain and makes it shallow….it can destroy the world and destroy oneself as well and while competition is necessary we should prevent it from turning into rivalry because toxicity of any form is destructive. Rivalry takes away the peace of mind of all the individuals embroiled in it. It might be started by one arrogant mind knowingly or unknowingly but it affects both the rivals and compromising our peace of mind is not the price we need to pay for pursuing our passion for we need to remember that in the end the only competition that is beneficial is the one which is with the self- the never ending strive to improve oneself- to perform better than the last performance.
