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?

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

    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
