Schadenfreude / Karma?

Taking pleasure in the misfortune of others is not an admirable trait. Okay, so I'm not perfect.

I ran across a very recent picture of OW this morning. I actually didn't recognize her at all until my eyes glanced at the caption--there was her name. I had to look at the picture again--yes, it was her, but she's gained a massive amount of weight! Her face is puffy, and she was wearing baggy, dowdy clothes to disguise her new bulk. She also looks a lot older than when I last saw her in May 2012.

I know this is mean, but seeing that picture filled me with a perverse kind of glee.

ETA: Removed my comment as it was not very supportive. Sorry.

You are not mean at all Sadflower. I posted yesterday about the OW having to walk in front of my car. She has never had a butt, yet yesterday I noticed that what little butt she had was very squishy. I was also filled with glee.

Nope it's good to find fault in the OW as far as I am concerned. It's part of healing.....One day (I'm still waiting) you will meet it with indifference. That's when you know You beat Infidelity's Ass.

..well then, my dancing on his grave wasn't so nice either???

.. and I suppose then, that pissing on his grave was really nasty???

....oh well, that's just toooooooooooo fucking bad, now isn't it!!!!

..pretending to be my trusted best friend for 25 years while he used my wife for bj's is totally worthy of the fate that he got..

..i like to think his inoperable brain tumor was a clear result of the guilt and shame he tried to live with, but God had other plans.

..karma? payback, God's justice.. ?? it all works for me!!

Me too. I've never taken any satisfaction from the misery of other before, and am generally a compassionate person. However, it is different with the OW. I too find myself filled with glee anytime something bad happens to her, and I laugh at her looks. Does this make me a bad person? I don't think so. These OPs have taken so much from us that I think we are entitled to a little mirth at their expense.

You know how we often say here….who cares what the OW thinks – well, in that vein – I really don’t care if anyone thinks poorly of me for being happy for every single awful thing that happens to OW – now and in the future. And to go even one better I’m always hoping and praying that something does happen to her to make the rest of her days miserable.

Karma – good or bad, I don’t believe in it now and never did.

I'm glad I'm not the only one.

It isn't as if I'm so slim myself. I know what it's like to battle weight issues; both OW and I have had to struggle to keep our weight down (neither of us has ever been slim, but until now, neither of us has been terribly overweight). I should have some compassion for how she must feel about herself, because it can't be good.

I guess it just gave me a sense of satisfaction (or something) to see that she is no longer the "gorgeous" woman my FWH used to think she was.

Tushnurse, I am still waiting for indifference, too. I am not there yet by a long shot.
