However there’s a line between this and being a complete sadist: taking pleasure in that person’s suffering and not just their relatable situation
Is it something called “schadenfreude”? Apparently that feeling comes from the situation subconsciously showing you that you’re not as much of a failure in life as the next person is (lack of better words, sorry).
No one wants to admit feeling it, but it’s completely normal. But notice you wouldn’t laugh at a poor old man that fell and hurt himself, but for a younger guy that falls and will get up alright...it’s different.
I could see a drug dealer making money off of a addict but most dealers are addicts
I don't know anyone that gets pleasure from other people's misfortunes.
