It's a given. We are the entire competitive bunch. Whether it is ingrained in all humanity or something bequeathed to us, it's better to say that we just hate to compete but we do it anyways! And one greatest and most common competition actually starts from our very own home - motherhood.

This contemporary competition had set yet again the standards for bringing up children these days. Mothers are no longer facing competition among siblings, in-laws, fellow neighbours or professional mothers but instead these mothers are constantly in competition with their own feelings and their feelings of reinventing motherhood.
With competition, comes desire and with desire comes satisfaction. But entwined between these networks of emotions, are little secrets that mothers keep deep within themselves. The fact is that mothers are now more competitive than the world has ever seen. It's no longer just about raising your children and caring for the home - it being spotless and all - It is now to publicly display their triumphs for all to see.
