“Why prefer to crawl?” from Rumi’s quote
below reminds me of the crabs in a bucket
mentality. In short, this behavior is observed
in crabs when they are trapped together in a
bucket. They will pull any one who tries to climb
out of the bucket back down into it, ensuring
that no one succeeds.
Observing people’s behavior lately on social
media, I would say there is quite a lot of crab
mentality being displayed. It’s very sad to see;
we really should be pulling together. Humanity
has many problems to work through right now,
and it seems we are intent on attacking each
other more than cooperating to succeed.
When are we all going to decide to soar and
thrive, together? We are so much better than this.
