crabs in a barrel mentality

October 1, 2018

You ever feel like your in a barrel and your one of the crabs trying to get out the barrel and relentlessly there is another crab trying to bring you down to their level because they don't want to see you get further than they are.  If you want to be successful you have to glide by those type of individuals that hate on your success and at any given moment they will jump on your arm or leg to bring you down in the boiling hot pot. 

I find I am most successful when I am working with individuals that respect my talent and trust me.  As a woman of color I find sometimes other Black woman attacking me especially older Black women. I can understand that some women had goals and never made a difference in society like they wanted.  Some get angry when they see someone like myself with tenacity that continues to grow and become successful in my own right.  I had a discussion with an associate and they explained I would have better business opportunities if I apologized.  I thought to myself what am I apologizing for and to whom am I apologizing to?  So I did a bit of soul searching and indeed if I did hurt someone I would apologize if the situation warrants it.  As a thinker I said to myself it's kind of silly just to apologize and I don't what I am apologizing to or for what.  So if folks are so hurt they can read it here on page first how I feel and what I feel.  On the other hand I'm thinking, who is this insecure person to go through someone else to ask for an apology what a wuss. Being the person I am it's no skin of my back to apologize to make someone feel better, but really this is quite petty and I don't do petty. So as usual time usually reveals others intentions and last week individuals truly showed me who they are which was quite a powerful situation.  

So what have I learned well I learned that I can teach for myself independently and I don't need the drama of insecure people. To be successful you are lonely more than often because success is not for everyone.  Many folks talk about being successful but  never really put backbone into their dreams.  Though I had a stressful last week I was still able to come to some ideas and produce mobile photography workshops. I'm better and stronger than ever...
