Getting out of the bucket

A friend once told me about the ‘crabs in a bucket’ mentality and wow was I shocked……

The Crabs in a bucket mentality broken down: if you put a crab in a bucket he can get out…..put another crab in the bucket and neither of them can get out. why? Because they pull each other down.

The shocking part…. I’ve seen this before – where – in my female peers.  It’s hard to admit, but it’s true.  Women are conditioned to help support each other on the surface, but behind closed doors it’s ‘she’s such a bitch’ conversations.images-17

All more reason we need ‘I Am Stronger’ so we can celebrate successful women and the beauty of building each other up.  Filling all the paperwork this week was the greatest feeling I’ve had.  A 6 year vision of empowering and celebrating strong women coming to life.

We’re not going to get stuck in the bucket, we’re going to turn it upside down so no one ever gets caught in it again.
