I find it troubling when people are successful, and look around them and are bitter at those who are not successful. I cannot fathom that mindset. .
Whether I or anyone "passes judgement" on someone else doesn't mean diddlysquat. It's the actions and performance of every individual that counts, not what other people think of them.
That "bitter at those who are not successful" is a load of crap. I hold no feelings one way or another about people who are in their failure stage (everyone goes through failure stages in their life).
I am not bitter about failures. I am, however, bitter that I have to pay for their mistakes, and by doing so, am encouraging them to fail again doing the same thing and to continue to expect that I pay for their mistakes.
But I am bitter about generations of people who are kept in poverty at my expense
just so that they can remain in poverty for the next generation and support those policies that keep them in poverty.
