Truth: Out To Get Me

It was the best of times, it was the worst of times.  Recently I was at an activities outing with a bunch of friends.  It was fun, but I came to find out that everyone was out to get me. They had told me that their mission was to beat me at the event and made sure that I lost.  They wanted to go against me, and talk smack.

Well during the event a few spies told me this because I didn't know going into it.  I liked it. I didn't mind. In fact, I was like "bring it!"...but most of all actually I just didn't care.  Now years ago, I would have gone nuts.  I would have been super competitive about it and fired up.  One time I was playing some basketball and some kids showed up to shoot around.  Well one was near me and I swatted his shot.  As I swatted his shot, my friend drove by in his car.  Stopped the car and yelled " are you kidding me!!! swatted some little kid".  I was like Wha???

Now, not so much.  Am I still competitive?  Not as much as I used to be. Am I mellowing with age? Yeah sure, but I think it has more to do with the fact I try to focus my energy when to be competitive, rather than just a raging bull all of the time.

Unfortunately while I am not so competitive anymore, people still think I am.  They still want to challenge me, just for challenge sake.  Not so much to beat me, because that isn't a great feat..but to see my shut me up. That's the challenge for them.  That's the victory.

Trust me I get it.  Wanna race?
