Supporter or competitor?

I saw this photo and was taken aback. Why can't you support someone in your line of business? Lawyers should support themselves. Doctors, bloggers, actors, business men should support other professionals within their field. They should even create an association/trade union to protect their interests. If you take life as a competition, you'll just kill yourself with BP. Life isn't that serious. Everyone is on his own lane. A makeup artist should see another's good work and appreciate not hate. A photographer should be able to recommend a colleague to a client if he would not be available. E maa wa ile aye maa ya.

If a competitor supports you, don't tag it as bad belle/hypocrisy. Not everyone has so much bile in their tummies like you do. Regarding someone as competition may be the beginning of the problem. Some people would refuse to train and inspire others because they don't want competition. They live for themselves and their businesses die with them. Mrs Tara Fela-Durotoye's businesses may not have grown so much if she kept her talent to herself and hid her light under a bushel. Support a sister/brother today. Love, Anuoluwapo.

Mami, I think it is pretty easy to support someone in your line of work. I mean, I don't get why there has to be a competition. Although, If my competitor throws compliments my way...I could never see that as hypocrisy cuz no matter what, we are still people with goals in different directions...Pretty Simple!
