Love & Family


People can have crab mentality for various reasons, such as because they’re trying to feel better about themself, because they view other people’s progress as coming at their own expense, or because they see others displaying the same kind of mentality.

The main sign of crab mentality is that someone often tries to discourage or sabotage others, in cases where there are no direct benefits to doing so.

Love & Family

George Eliot

"The presence of a noble nature, generous in its wishes, ardent in its charity, changes the lights for us: we begin to see things again in their larger, quieter masses, and to believe that we too can be seen and judged in the wholeness of our character."

The Longest-Running Study On Happiness
  • The Harvard Study of Adult Development has followed 724 men (from various economic and social backgrounds) since they were teenagers in 1938.
  • The clearest message from this 75-year study is this: Good relationships keep us happier and healthier.
  • The people who fared the best were the people who leaned in to relationships, with family, with friends, with community.
  • Over the years, the researchers asked members questions about their lives and their mental and emotional wellness.

What makes a good life?

The word sympathy, in the 16th century, described a relationship between two things that are related in a certain way, like a doctor giving a discount to frequent patients.

It was an open-ended term encompassing love, woe, sorrow and many emotional experiences..

Sympathy vs. Empathy: What’s the Difference?

You likely have a stronger need for closeness in your relationships. You desire a "best friend" and confidante. You may be overly attuned to subtle cues that you are left out.

You become very involved in a person's life, but your friends may not reciprocate when you are in need. You may feel hurt, betrayed, angry and shame because of the belief that there must be something wrong with you.
