    19 Things That Are So True If You're An Unapologetically Competitive Woman

    You call it aggression, we call it ambition.

    1. First of all, you know that there's nothing better than beating a guy at something.

    Could be anything: sports, darts, drinking water — it doesn't matter. It still feels great.

    2. Especially when you've beaten them at something considered "manly."

    ESPECIALLY if it's sports.

    3. Nothing gets you angrier than being doubted...

    It's basically the easiest way to piss you off.

    4. And your determination to prove them wrong honestly can feel straight up intoxicating.

    Nothing like knowing you're about to be right.

    5. You're not one to be "humble" about your accomplishments — because why shouldn't you get to bask in a little glory?

    Chances are, you've rehearsed an acceptance speech or two in the shower.

    6. You know better than to see other woman as a threat.

    Instead, you know they are usually your greatest allies.

    7. And you ALWAYS celebrate a little inside when you win an argument with a significant other.

    It's not gloating if you do it in private, right??

    8. Even when you're wrong, you always own up to it quickly – so that later you can secretly brag about being the bigger person.

    It's how you never lose.

    9. You don't have to make everything a contest. You just want to.

    Sorry not sorry that winning is so fun.

    10. You've even secretly raced people on the street to prove who walks faster.

    It's not petty. It's PRACTICE.

    11. And you are very, very hard on yourself when things don't go exactly the way you expected.

    It's a lifestyle.

    12. Because at the end of the day, no one has higher standards for yourself than you.

    You expect the world from you.

    13. Which is why it's so goddamn galling to be underestimated right off the bat, just because of your gender.

    It's some real bullshit, yo.

    14. You get really excited when you find people who can actually give constructive criticism.

    They are your people.

    15. Because you know they will help you improve.

    And the goal here is to never stop never stopping, ya know?

    16. You're also definitely a perfectionist.

    It's your biggest strength and weakness for real.

    17. Because you're never not pushing yourself harder.

    You feel like things could always be a little better.

    18. To the point where you often catch yourself needing to just take a few deep breaths.

    19. And you have to stop, take a step back, and remind yourself of how great you already are.

    And then it's back to killing the game. 💅 💅 💅
