Why do people judge, criticise and condemn ~ or steal credit for ~ work that others have done?

If they like the product:

If they like the product, they will steal credit for it. This behaviour results from having very low self-esteem, such that the thought of someone else receiving appreciation or recognition for any reason is terrifying and/or sickening and/or infuriating. Can result from one’s caregivers in early childhood behaving this way

Spiritual effects of the pattern: The lack of self-worth is such that that we hardly even know that we’re doing it – yet we HATE it if someone steals our credit (a sure sign that there’s a problem!)

Physical effects of the pattern: The craving for positive attention is a form of addiction that compels people to do whatever they can to gain it – even if it means that those who have earned it will go without acknowledgement

How to change the pattern: Until we recognize that there is a problem, there is not much that can be done to change it. However, this inner child issue can be identified and resolved through practicing meditation as the Universe teaches the process

If the work threatens their position:

If the work threatens their position in some way though, they will pretend to like something about it to make their critical opinion seem more valid – then their true motive shines through. What they really want is for others to believe that they are the expert. This compels them to find fault, but all they really accomplish is to show their own lack of understanding and/or abilities. Some people fall for this ruse, and that is one of the reasons that using criticism continues to be so popular

Spiritual effects of the pattern: The lack of self-worth makes us desperate for the approval of others

Physical effects of the pattern: Craving the approval of others is a form of addiction that compels people to do whatever they can to gain it – even if it means that those who have earned it may be condemned

How to change the pattern: Until we recognize that there is a problem, there is not much that can be done to change it. However, this inner child issue can be identified and resolved through practicing meditation as the Universe teaches the process
