Human beings feed off other people's miseries!
The statement hit me hard but when I thought about it...I recognized its trueness. Most of us are nice people. We do not want others to suffer. However, when we see that others have problems, there is a strangely satisfying feeling of not being the only one in trouble. That's not the definition of being nice now, is it?
