I’m sure when many of you see others meet misfortune, deep inside you feel happy.
Although you say things like oh I feel so sorry for you, or hope things be better for you. Do you really hope things will get better for other people or just fake kindness?
C’mon, admit it don’t need to feel bad. Just like we feel jealous when we see our peers more successful than ourselves, we also feel happy when we see them less successful than us.
It’s human nature. I feel happy when I see my colleague get laid off, or another one whose business failed.
A close friend recently broke up with her boyfriend and cancelled the wedding dinner plus the HDB BTO. Lost money lost love. Asked us out to pour her sorrow out and of cos we comforted her felt so sorry all the bs.
But I was also secretly happy, like hey finally me being single actually is still better than her state now. It makes me feel less of a loser. Now and then I text her to ask how she is doing. The worse she still feels, the better I feel. We do like to compare among our peers. No use compared with foreign workers or beggars on the street because they belong to a different social class.
For those of you starting to judge me or in denial, stop pretending to be holy altruistic mother teresa. Admit you are a hypocrite. Do you dare swear you have never secretly felt good when something bad happens to your peers before?
Here are what netizens think:
Your post is right! I do feel that way after seeing your post. I am happy that you are quite pathetic.
Ya sometimes we think like that… Until the same thing happens to us because…. bad luck happens to anyone
Sometimes some ppl living in denial yet they are unaware. Haiz.. sad for them.. or should I feel happy for myself?
