Every time you find yourself judging someone else for any probable reason, that judgement turns out to undoubtedly be a reflection of your own internal insecurity of which you may probably or totally be unaware of.

For example:

If you find yourself highly envious or critical of someone else’s sense of fashion, higher the chances are that you are very conscious of your own style of dressing and on how people perceive your sense of fashion.
If you find yourself constantly checking people’s facebook likes or Quora upvotes, then most certainly there are very good chances of you being insecure of the number of likes and upvotes that you get.
If you constantly consider others to be excessively pretty/ handsome or ugly, you most probably are insecure about your own looks.
Think of any situation where you were totally envious or highly critical of someone else’s attributes and possessions and ask yourself where you stand with regards to that same attribute/ possession.
