Some women seem to compete for attention from males. They will dress for a man's attention and will do deceptive things to make another woman look bad in front of a male. These women will pursue a man in a relationship with the intent of making her look stupid. Sadly, these women are often "friends" with the female. Why can't you find another man who is not in a "committed" relationship? There's no reason to compete for the same man. You both look stupid as a result and that man doesn't care about either of you if he's allowing you to do so. Why give a man who treats another woman terribly that kind of satisfaction? These women are part of this repetitive cycle of failed relationships due to infidelities.
There's also the women who are jealous of another woman for any reason. Maybe they think a woman is prettier than them, she's skinnier, longer hair, the list goes on and on. This also goes back to attention from men. Women will compare themselves to a woman who is getting attention from men that she's interested in. These women will often talk negatively about the woman but they are really thinking, "what does she have that I don't have?"
You shouldn't want to gain whatever that woman has to get a man that's not paying you any attention. You are unique and different from other women for a reason and you're beautiful just the way you are. Do you really want to be just like someone else just so you can be with a man that you think you want? If you're not being true to yourself, that relationship will never last so why waste your time and energy?
I am often around women who think they set the standards for the right way to do things. It can be about anything in life. They always want to give you some advice, especially when you're not asking for it. If I told this kind of woman about a new handbag I purchased, she would say something like, "oh, you shop there? I always shop here. I never shop there because…" I think it's their way of getting you to want to be like them. They try to make you feel bad about how you do things so you'll want to look up to them because they are so perfect. I try not to entertain these people because I am my own person and there is no right way to live your life other than the way you live it.
What I think these women fail to realize is that we mirror each other. We are all different in our own way but we are all women who go through similar struggles and circumstances. We often know the pain that a woman is going through so why try to break her down in the first place. None of us are perfect and we don't know know everything. We should work together and not compete against each other. Women who compete are insecure as they seek recognition for something about their appearance or character because they don't believe it themselves.
