schadenfreude: to derive pleasure from another's misfortune.
i know i shouldn't engage in this activity, but i do. and i like it. i'm working on just blocking those people from my mind completely so i don't have to wonder if they are doing well or not. shouldn't i just be happy for people? yes. but i am not a very nice person, as i have so often been told - by other not-so-nice people i might add, though i never told them so directly. i'm nicer than that, surprisingly.
instead, i engage quietly in schadenfreude.
i think people get what they have coming to them, which is why i often wonder what i have done to deserve the bad things that happen to me. ryan says that bad things just happen and that they are not punishments for some wrong i have committed, but sometimes i think i am being punished so others can engage in schadenfreude, too.
