Praise or criticism comes when someone exceeds or fails your expectations.
The difference between the expected and the actual, defines the scale of the praise.
Some times on an exponential scale.
But I do not have expectations of others.
I do not control them, so I cannot expect them to act the way I would.
So I shouldn’t criticise others.
And I try not to.
Am I, then, a hypocrite to praise them?
But that's supposed to be my job..
