What Is the Crab Mentality?
If you put one crab in a bucket, it can claw its way up and out, and return to the wild. But something interesting happens if you put a bunch of crabs in a bucket. If one of them tries to climb out, the rest pull it back into the bucket.
Further, if the crab tries to climb out a second time, the other crabs gang up on the crab again, and may actually begin to break its claws to completely hinder its progress. This means that none of the crabs end up escaping because they are all working against each other.
Unfortunately, this type of mentality is often translated into human behavior. The crab mentality is a metaphor for how humans respond when they see someone else around them achieving some kind of self-improvement that they can't achieve themselves.
This applies to everyone. Friends, family, significant others, people you may not even remotely expect it from.
Don't let anyone dull your shine.
Prepare yourself for this.
1) Request People's Support.
2) Set Firm Boundaries.
3) Edit Your Relationships When Necessary.
