Why do some people begrudge others even when they are doing their best?


Sometimes I notice that there is a tendency to criticize people who are good at what they are doing. It seems to me that one has to be doing nothing to criticize and doing something to be criticized. Is this true?

    I am not offering criticism fpherj48. I read this bit and byte of sharing as other hubs and etc. Mr. Green popped an image of a calendar on the wall of imagery of Elsa Beskow of Sweden. The book "Aunt Green, Aunt Brown, and Aunt Lavender." :) thanks

    Sadly you are right. Some people like to hurt others and that is why they criticize. Combined with prejudice,begrudgery is much worse.

    You are right to point out the difference here but in my view criticism is never work. It is just second nature to some folk

    Superiority and insecurity are a lot to do with begrudgery as you say-understanding why people are like this helps us not to take it personally

    That is a good way of dealing with it provided they are not in our family or workplace where it is harder to do. Thanks for your comment lisauniquevoice
