    This sentence's grammar is okay?

    Some believe that we cannot concentrate on our work because we get more stress from criticism of others.

    But what does this mean? What is the context?
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.

    More stress than from what? I think the sentence is either not complete (more steress from... than from...) or there should be another sentence before it to make the context clear.
    If I were a native speaker of English, I would never shut up. :-)
