Do you know that if you put several crabs in the same bucket none will escape? I mean none!
If any of the crabs starts to climb out,it will be pulled by the others into the bucket.They do this by reaching tirelessly with their claws to pull down any crab that is trying to escape.
In other words, ‘if I can’t have it,neither can you’.
Unfortunately,some human beings have same behavioural pattern.
Wikipedia describes such behavior this way:
“…members of a group will attempt to reduce the self-confidence of any member who achieves success beyond the others,out of envy, jealousy, resentment,spite, conspiracy,or competitive feelings,to halt their progress”.
If you are a victim …Now you know the cause.
If you have such behavior, turn a new leaf.
Know that everyone has a purpose to accomplish in this life.
It is a customized purpose.You can’t achieve the purpose of another person.
If your neighbor is successful in his,don’t pull him down like the crabs in a bucket.
