Competitive friends? watch

    • Thread Starter

    I'm sure at least a few of you have competitive friends when it come to school work, but how do you manage to remain the good friends while focusing on your respective, slightly overlapping goals?

    We're friends so we help each other with our work. Competitive doesn't mean selfish and a lot of my friends at uni were competitive but still were willing to help me out.

    it's hard because I have very high goals and my studies are a massive priority. When it comes to competitive friends, you shouldn't worry about their goals, worry about your own and still hang out w/ them but don't let their strive make you feel uncomfortable, or envious. Always aim to up to your best capability and still hang out with them on the weekend without letting each others' goals get in the way.
