Default Why do some people find fault with everything??

Just a lil vent time.. I have this friend who i saw over the xmas period, who always seems to find fault with everything i do and/or say.. what can you do with people like this? I feel like i have to justify everything and its getting really annoying

Just because I have a life i am very happy with and have had some great things happen seems to make this person upset..

This person is just a 'woe is me' type.. but you can see by the choices they make they created their own reality.

I'm not taking it on, but it is getting annoying to the point where i really aint that interested anymore..

Think about it - by critisising you they make them self look like they have a better life etc! Jealousy here i'm afraid Some people need to belittle others to feel better about themselves.

I don't know why people do this but, I've had a friend like this (surprisingly she isn't my friend anymore... ) and my brother hates EVERYTHING. Disagree's with EVERYTHING. Mum and I have given up. We make whatever we want for dinner and if he doesn't like it, there's plenty of bread. We bought a new house and he won't come and see it. So everytime we go out it's, " Can you buy me this?" When he's not even there. It's drives me NUTTY!!!!!!!
Seriously, if he can't get off his backside to come down the road to see what he can have for lunch, or visit the new house... HE'S LAZY!!!! We have shown him a video of the house and he complains about something in everyroom.
"Oh, it's another one of those bath showers."
"Are you getting rid of those shelves?"

I have seriously had enough. I have a feeling I'll probably move out of home first (even though he's 3 years older than me) because he doesn't want to do anything with his life. I'm 13 and already thinking about getting a job this year. All he does is sit on his but all day playing computer games, listening to music and talking to people. He never helps around the house. Once he was going to do the dishes and he said, "Oh, these are mostly your dishes." So? WHY NOT DO THEM YOURSELF YOU LAZY MEANIE!!!!!!!!!!!!!




That feels slightly better.

It sounds as though your 'friend' has never learned how to be happy. Truly happy. I am sure they think they are but its prob pretty obvious to everyone else they aren't. So as WAR said, to give themselves a lift and to make their life not seem so bad they find fault elsewhere.

I really feel sorry for people like this, because they won't ever be really happy, the won't ever be comfortable in their own skin nor content with all the great things they DO have. Its really sad.

Oh and Emmy, MY brother is exactly the same. He drives me bananas. I moved out first and haven't been happier. Now he's out in the world on his own he's had to find SOME independance (till he finds a nice little wifey to mother him LOL) and as long as I don't see him much we get along just fine.

Too bad I'm only 13 :/
I'd rather live in a hayloft.

I had a friend who was simular but not quite. It wasnt that she'd find fault with stuff, not at all. But everything I did or story I had to tell, she would always find a way to go one better.

If I had a story about a bad fall, her fall was worse. If I had a story about an awesome riding achievement, she had a better one. If my mum annoyed me, hers would have annoyed me worse. If I got a super Christmas present she had a better one. If I had endured a really awful terrible day she'd had a worse one. It was unreal. Sometimes I'd invent something just to see what she'd come up with.

Yep, totally agree.

Have a friend like this. Sort of. And even if they have a good life, or something good that's happened to them, they always seem to find time to ring you and gloat about it, and find out just how much better whatever it is, is better than yours.
Yet, they never seem to have time to ring you to see how you are.
They always seem to talk about themselves, and all you seem to do is sit there and nod. Because even if you do say something about yourself, they will tear off at a tangent back to themselves, never asking any questions about you, or even showing the slightest bit of interest.
And forget about ever getting an appology.
You're only there when they are bored.

Shits me to no end.
