The person who likes to ridicule others out of envy or jealousy or for whatever reason is doing a great disfavor to himself. What he does not realize is that by trying to pleasure himself (shock sendiri), he is creating bad blood; he is not doing himself any good or to anybody.
This type of personality is not limited to the uneducated. Well-educated men or women also have these kind of traits.
They are mean in their praise and generous in their criticism. They are always on the lookout for the bone in the egg.
Criticism is okay provided that it is constructive and logical, and expressed in a euphemistic manner. The person who cannot do this should refrain himself from making any comment at all.
A wise man speaks because he has to; a food speaks because he has to say something.
How do we deal with this kind of people? The best way is to avoid them. It is no use trying to change them.
You can alter the mountains or rivers, but you can't change the inborn character of a person. A leopard never changes its spots.
Thus, the saying: The only way to convince a fool is to let him have his ways.
