Everything looks like a competition because some 18th century pricks decided it was and convinced everyone else to play along. If you like that game more power to you, but if you don't the answer isn't "that's just how it is", it's "play a different game." I don't like the Stoics, but they were right in saying happiness is valuing only the things that depend on you.
