You and someone else are moving in the same direction. At one stage, you may be leading the way, while at another, you may fall behind. But in the end, it doesn’t matter. Somewhere along the way, you realise that you care for one another, and will help each other out when needed. It’s no longer a race. It’s a shared journey.
