The real me...

I think that I'm basically a nice person! Now I know I'm no Mother Theresa but I don't think I have ever deliberately hurt another person in my life. If I have caused someone grief, it was because of a lack of sensitivity and empathy on my part and not a defined act of vindictiveness.

schadenfreude (noun):  satisfaction or pleasure derived from the misfortune of others.

At the moment I feel sorry for anyone who isn't me. There, I've admitted it.
 I'm a BITCH really!!!!
and it's not such a bad thing!
