Rabbi Naftali of Ropshitz commented, "There will always be people who criticize the behavior of others, regardless of how great they are or what they do."
When someone disapproves of your behavior, it does not necessarily prove you are truly at fault. It is always possible to complain about others' behavior. Another person's disapproval of you may be his personal opinion or critical tendency.
(Eser Tzchich'tzachus, p.97; Rabbi Pliskin's "Gateway to Happiness," p.289)
