Crabs in a Bucket is a metaphor for a way of thinking that is best described as “if I can’t have it  – neither can you”. It comes from how crabs act when you put a group of them in a bucket. Instead of working together to get out easily they fight and try to kill each other so nobody gets out. It describes the toxic state of modern life – especially internet communities. I also find that I suffer from this mindset in life. It is difficult for me to enjoy the success of someone else. It is a massive flaw.
