We love to talk about others. We speak behind their back about how bad they are. We criticise their work, habits, dressing sense, relationships – almost everything possible!
But why do we do that?
One reason is that it takes focus away from ourselves. Getting in front of a mirror with brutal honesty can be pretty depressing. We may not like who we really are. There may be a long list of things for self-improvement.
However, looking at others and finding flaws is much more effortless and pleasurable. It even helps us to feel better about ourselves.
The question is – Is it worth it?
