    criticism that wasn't actually there

    I'm not sure of what the following in red is saying. What kind of criticism is it?

    Before anything else, Jerry checked himself. He knew that he was sensitive about IT---it was his baby---and that he sometimes heard criticism that wan't actually there. He checked his Complainer tendencies and committed to stay mature.

    Thank you.
