When is being competitive unhealthy or obnoxious?
At the pool this morning in Aquacise, the teacher had us do kicking races across the pool. I won several times; being a good swimmer is on of my few athletic accomplishments. Someone next to me said “you’re very competitive” and I felt kinda ashamed. On another occasion, a friend has called me very competitive, I think that was in verbal matters. When is it healthy and when is it “too much”?
