Re: Self Schadenfreude
I find this true too. My brother asks me what's going on in my life, and I tell him about STBX and all of his drama, and I laugh. The more ridiculous it gets, the more i laugh. And he shakes his head at me, like, how are you laughing at this? it's terrible!
I cried about all of the problems he made for me for years, i figure now that i'm out on my own, at least it's problems from a distance and I can laugh about it.
Forget enough to get over it, remember enough so it doesn't happen again.
