Crabs| Are you a crab in a barrel?
Since I was a young girl I have heard the expression, “Crabs in a barrel”, when referring to an individual or a group of people who refuse to support the efforts of others. The expression does not stop with the refusal of support, but also addresses the level in which some people will go to obstruct the success of others. Many people today simply use the expression, “Haters”! So starting right now, I am asking all of the “Crabs in a barrel” and “Haters” to perform a self check and decide on an action (ie: Love, Joy, Peace, Forbearance, Kindness, Goodness, Faithfulness, Gentleness, Self-Control) that will allow you to become more supportive of others. Oh, there is another expression I have heard since I was a young girl. The expression goes like this, “If you cannot say something good about someone, then you should not say anything about them”!
