When did you ever watch something horrible happen to another person and feel better about yourself?

Do you mean a conscious "I feel good about myself" thought, or more of a "Haha! Sux 2 b u" thought?

Hey just compare for self-assurance, not for vanity!

Nothing like the times when I feel like frost spec is weak for taking a too long to kill a five-mob pull, only to see a marks hunter get killed by two of the same mobs a moment later.

If we're all being honest here, yes. Absolutely. I had an ex boyfriend of mine a few years ago that lied to me and cheated on me. He treated me horribly. Then, he enlisted in the army, went away for a few years, and I didn't hear from him until about three years ago. He sent me a facebook message, completely unsolicited, telling me how sorry he was for the way he treated me. He went through bullet points of the things that he did wrong, and at the end of the message, he asked to take me out to dinner when he was leave, explain his side of things, etc. etc.

So, because he owned up to what he did, I absolutely granted him that second chance. I felt he had learned from his mistakes, he had apologized for them, and he was attempting to make it right, so I met him half way.

Long story short, he screwed me over again. So when the girl that he cheated on me with suddenly turned up pregnant...I admit, I had a giggle moment. He had always said he didn't want children, he didn't want to end up like his father, etc. etc. etc, and by virtue of his own actions, he ended up as the thing he hated most. The only person I felt sorry for in the entire situation was the child he had fathered. I have no idea where he is now, I haven't heard from him since I found out he was cheating on me because I cut ties immediately, even without telling him.

>_> B-but this one woman had like...cake-frosting for mascara...and I had just a thin coat; my eyes got compliments galore that day.

>_< I-I need help controlling the beast! SAVE ME LITO!


oh, well makeup can be fixed, people can learn. judge away lololol

Nah, I was just saying don't get caught up with judging or comparing other women by their appearance; it's an awful attitude to internalize and can become harmful to yourself too. I threw in the self-assurance thing because a lot of trans people judge themselves too harshly, and recognizing the spectrum of people out there (of their target presentation) can be helpful.

Very yes.

My ex hadn't seen our sons in close to 2 years because he was "busy." Of course, busy literally meant he was too busy having fun with his new girlfriend and partying to remember he had kids until his mother kindly reminded him. When they came home to me after spending the summer with their grandparents - and consequently my ex - he flew in to drop them off to "say goodbye." I looked at him. He looked at me. He looked like an awkward ginger bobblehead doll with a beer gut and his clothes were covered in oil and smelled to high heaven. I, of course, was dressed up a bit (because I do that when I leave the house) and intending on taking the boys out to dinner.

"Wow, Kristah, you look amazing." -- His words.
"You look.. okay." -- My reply.

After that, I took the kids out and got a text from him: "I wish we had never split."

I didn't reply. Saw no need to. I felt good knowing I could still wow him and had absolutely no intention of doing so. Every so often he texts me about it. I remind him he has a responsibility aaaaaaaand then the texts stop for a week or so.

I think the only time really is when I see someone else make the same mistake I did and know I'm not alone.
