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
This is exactly the point I am making fpherj48. You are right-we are lucky that there are people who can enjoy someone else getting on well-I always make a conscious effort to do so and it isn't hard. Thank you for your constructive comment
Kate....I THANK YOU! :)
You are more than welcome fpherj48
Such an appropriate quote here-words from the wise I'd say. Thankyou
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
Good answer -
To me - Judgements appears to me to be the problem. "There is no right or wrong but thinking makes is so" Shakespeare
Thank you Neil Sperling. I will look the quote of reference up latter tonight. Then I shall ponder new discoveries. Thank you . . .
As I said it is quite simple. People who criticize are doing nothing and people who are being criticized are doing something
Kate - If a great guy becomes annoying when he is drunk... and people overlook a long time - finally someone has enough and blows huge criticism at the chap - the criticism IS doing something. Doing nothing would be ignoring the behavior even longer.
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
You are right about that-jealousy it is.
Spot on correct! So many people believe that if they are not achieving & receiving credit, then others SHOULDN'T either.
I absolutely agree with this comment. Jealousy plays a huge part in the type of behavior described in the question.
There seems to be some consensus on this Grace-Wolf-30. Indeed jealousy and begrudgery are very similar,aren't they?
gm you are right except sometimes some people are overlooked when they are doing a good job
