On Criticism

I really really hate it when people takes special care to critisize my choice.
To assess the worth of what I buy and declare (spitefully) that it is not worth the amount I paid.
For the worth of anything I buy is only for my eyes/ mind/ soul- not for any one else's.
It is different when I am trying to take help and I ask - do you think it is worth it? Should I spend my hard earned money on it?
The perception of worth is different for different people and so also their choices. If everyone were to select the same stuff, imagine how unidimensional the world would be.
I wonder, whatever happened to good manners, restraint and all that when admiring someone else's purchases.
Why can't one just say - nice and then keep their trap shut?
Especially when one can see clearly that I am very happy with my purchase and really see the value in it.

I simply stopped showing ppl what I buy-this after all the irritation the uncalled for remarks had caused. I'm the 'wisend' one now :-D

Same here.

I think the more educated and well-settled we are, the less civilized and thoughtful we are fast becoming. People sneer at each other to put down the efforts and choices of others because of some inherent inferiority complexes they themselves suffer inwardly. In the process of masking that, they make our lives miserable with such statements.

Just consider such people as mentally ill - normal people don't behave like this in civilized society.
