Crab mentality is very much alive. In fact, it is very common in the Philippines.
No, it does not mean being crabby nor irritable.
Crab mentality means, people try to pull you down hoping you will not fly your lovely society. It is an act of desperation to bring you down. It is an act of jealousy or envy. It is an act of cowardice.
Their modus operandi is usually gossiping, a favorite past time of the jobless, poor and miserable people.
They love spreading fabricated lies without proof nor evidence
when asked about proof, they lie some more to cover the other lies
Are you one of them? No lessons learned in the past but dramas and continuation of immaturity and bitterness.
But, alas, very few people know how to thank those who made the early movements of atheism and humanism possible.
I say, remember the ten lepers? that is all the same, nine will leave and forget you, while only one will remember to thank you.
No expectation is better, you will not get frustrated nor annoyed.
That is how life will take you, better to put yourself first than others.
I learned my lessons well, now, I feel less obliged and less guilty to help others.
I do not need fame nor fortune, and have no vested interest in the Philippines. I will not even retire there. I do not have to do activism in the Philippines, but the next generations need our guidance.
I had a very lovely job : empowering patients about their disease and treatment choices, as an adult Nurse Practitioner of one of the biggest insurance companies in the world. It was a challenging and difficult job, yet, I Iove it very much.
The remuneration package was top notch, with 6-figure basic salary with bonuses galore, and free trips for educational days. It was a job everyone would love to have , but , with the right credentials and experience.
But, came a supervisor so new in the field, she treated patients like numbers. I always fought for my patients even if I worked for that insurance company. I cannot stand people whose priority is their pockets than patients.
I cannot stay in a company whereby my ethical values clash with their philosophy and company policy. A human being is more valuable than money in my pockets. I cannot fight city hall anymore, I had to leave, or I will blow the whistle.
It is sometimes better to be at peace, than to be right.
I am just lucky, I was able to retire early and did not even miss my salary. My husband supported my decision, of course, he knows I am right all along.
What can a scammer / a sociopath/pathological liar do in retaliation to my expose’ about him ? But, write a long narrative sob stories full of lies and fabricated stories , so, gullible people will believe him. He is just trying to deflect his misdeeds and to defend himself.
I have so much to give that is why I made societies that can help some people..I could have done this just by being a lone philanthropist. But I encountered a sociopath like ALJOHN de LEON, who got mad when I can no longer support him… .war of words only ? let us see who will have a better life.. I already have..
Those societies know me personally, by the way, and they have been appraised of his scamming and termination, so that he will not be able to ask funding from them using my name.
I have a great job, besides, my husband is also comfortable.
We do not need donations..all donations go to HAPI.
I have all xoom transactions and witnesses for ALJOHN DE LEON’s , theft and scamming and OUTRIGHT LIES and fabricated stories.. he will get what he deserved.
ALJOHN de Leon is very desperate now because he was EXPOSED as a professional SCAMMER and pathological LIAR. He was pretending to be a humanist and attached himself to me, so that he can scam my wealthy associates and myself.
Self-entitlement is rampant everywhere, but worse in the Philippine society. Some Filipinos think that they are entitled to my money when I ask them to do things that they voluntarily do, like activism and propagation of critical thinking.
I must be naive to think that they do it for humanity’s sake. I did not know that it is their way to scam and steal from me.
The work and volunteering disappeared as soon as I stopped helping them financially. Did you say, volunteering needs money? and distort the meaning of charity. Charity is paying it forward.
You left hurriedly when I stopped my financial help, it was a clue that you are just a thief and worse a scammer. Two of you with the same paths: scamming and manipulating those who are kind hearted. No wonder, you protected each other, you both are of the same cloth.
