the enemy within

We often compete with and demonize our colleagues or family members.
However, proximity and familiarity are tragic standards upon which to focus your destructive drives. Instead, you should consider the broader world in which you must ultimately succeed.

To win over your family, classroom, or office is a small-minded and hollow victory. To work against your comrades is to sabotage your stability.
