  Topic:

  Do you agree or disagree with the following statement? Competition with friends may have negative effect on friendship. Use specific reasons and examples to support your answer.

  Essay:

  Competition with friends can be positive or negative. The issue of competition between friends is important because, although competition can motivate people to excel, it can also cause undesirable problems. For that matter, competition can be both healthy and unhealthy.

  More often than not, there is nothing wrong with competition with friends in a healthy way. For example, when friends play sports or games and try to beat each other, competition is normal and natural. This kind of competition is healthy because, win or lose, they can enjoy it in good humor. Likewise, betting on which team will win is a healthy way to compete with friends, without causing resentment and conflict whatever. Generally speaking, positive competition would do good on friendship, encouraging people to work harder and strive for more. In fact, a small amount of competition can be empowering friendship. If handled properly, low levels of rivalry can spur on friends to do their absolute best. After all, competition is a social process where people try their best to do something better than others so they can succeed in life.

  Not every friendship is healthy, however. It is mainly because competition can cause problems, such as stress, jealousy, envy and rage, that can lead to broken relationships. Sometimes such negative emotions might turn out to be too overwhelming to be easily swallowed, indeed. Probably, unhealthy competition is motivated by a lack of self-esteem, leading one to prove one’s superiority at another person’s expense. As well, unhealthy competition is fostered by the modern society’s individualistic value system that emphasizes winning at all costs. Examples of unhealthy competition include: who has the best clothes, the best place to live, and the best car. Under these circumstances, it is hard for friends to deal with this toxic and tedious situation of rivalry. That is to say, competition with friends can be unfriendly and may therefore have negative effect on friendship.

  In conclusion, competition with friends is paradoxical, with healthy and unhealthy effect. There are times when the effect is positive; but there are other times when the effect is negative.
