The answer may have to do with envy. #hatersgonnahate
People often feel guilty but can't identify what they did wrong. One explanation is that they have become the object of someone's envy.
Envy is wanting what someone else has. When a person becomes the target of someone's envy, it can create an uncomfortable, confusing feeling.
If one is the target of envy, it may help to consider whether one actually did something to hurt someone.
