Some Dislike Losing More Than They Like Winning

Angie Towery
Staff Writer

Has there ever been a time you didn't really want something, you just didn't want someone else to have it? Have you ever passed up the last piece of bacon and then begrudge the person who ate it?

Sometimes, it's more satisfying seeing someone miss out on something more than you actually enjoyed it. And sometimes, we pass on things we want just to see another be happy.

I've witnessed at work environments, on social media, and while dining out -the results of many who would rather see their least favored college basketball team lose than admit, often, the better team wins (ABC /Dookies) (LOL).

While being competitive can push us to achieve greatness, do we forget to celebrate our victories because we rally in another's loss? Do we forget what we done right because we failed to get the win?

I think we all want to win but there are lessons to be gained in losses.
