בלי עין הרע

According to תוס' הרי"ד, (Bava Kama 83a) a person can bring an עין הרע on oneself.

He explains the Pasuk  " 'איכה ג)   "עיני עוללה לנפשי מכל בנות עירי)
" My own (bad) eye did harm on myself, more than all daughters of my city" 

Some learn Pshat in the Gemoro (Brachos 55b)
ואי דחיל מעינא בישא דיליה"
 one places on himself  עין רע    refers to the 

The רע"ב (Bartenura) explains the Mishna in Avos (Perek 2: 11)
   ר"י אומר עין הרע - מוציאין את האדם מן העולם

The עין הרע is not from others on him but from the person himself. By not being satisfied and happy with what he has and being jealous of others, this is the עין הרע the cause for him to be removed from the world.
In other words, it's not that others kill him but he kills himself.

טוב עין הוא יבורך
משלי כ"ב
