Crab Mentality No More (Please)

Do you know a person who gets so envious when friends or relatives have achieved something great in their lifetime, like a college classmate who used to cheat is now managing a popular fast food chain or a son of an ordinary mechanic is now an engineer? I bet, “Buti pa sya” is their favorite expression. I personally think it is ok to be envious but too much could be dangerous. Envy is good if it drives you to do better in what you do because you also want to succeed. Envy is good if you can be happy for others and wish them more success. On the other hand, it can also lead to self-pity, misery and a hopeless life. Worst, instead of making the achievers a source of inspiration, others tend to pull them down. Awful!!! Unfortunately, there’s quite a lot (even inside a family). :(
