Does make you feel better about yourself to see someone else misfortune/hard times?
My mother was watching this show of some billionaire that's having a hard time financially; a riches to rags story. Mother says, oh I feel better about myself now knowing I'm not the only one having a hard time. Do people really need to see other people miserable to feel better. I cannot relate. I don't enjoy seeing anyone have a hard time and no it does not make me feel better. Am I not the norm...or is more normally to enjoy others peoples misfortune? I'm a bit disturbed.
