Had I not had sports growing up, I would have taken out my energy fighting with kids. I was hyper-active and I needed an outlet to get out that energy. It was through competition I learned how to be social with people rather than just fighting them. I agree with Ben that competition is an extremely pro-cooperation activity.Like, I get that there can be problems with competition and it can be addictive and problematic. But my whole life would have been tremendously worse had I not had competition to focus my energy when I was young. This isn't an exaggeration either. My mind did not understand how to relate to other kids until my parents put me in soccer and I was able to start seeing my teammates as allies. I needed them if I wanted to win, and that made me start learning how to play along with them.
@enzilag i got it :-)
