“If people are trying to bring you down, it only means that you are above them.”
Crab mentality is something that is considered as an inevitable experience in life. Nobody’s perfect, every now and then jealousy and envy lurks and influences as. It is human nature to compare oneself to others. That is why, success comes with great fall especially when you take each criticism and opinions as a big deal. Think about it; people will only talk if you have done something great. But if you are someone who doesn’t have any accomplishments people will consider you as nobody, an outcast. This is because most people will justify their failures by creating something destructive about you. Why? It is a form of coping mechanism that when you are above others, they try to pull you down for equilibrium. The only way to move this issue aside is to consider every criticism and opinion a challenge to push you further above and don’t let people pull you to their level.
