Is it wrong to be glad someone is dead?

I found out that a violent and insulting man I worked with died two years ago. I'm actually relieved that I'll never have to see him again. I hate bullies.

Don’t see anything wrong with how you feel :)

[@568699,TheotherAndy] Thanks. He was awful. He threatened to punch my face and called me a coward. Nice way to treat girls.

WOW, I really don’t think you should feel bad then!! [@1183899,Nightly]

It's only wrong if you're the one who killed them, unless it was in self-defense.
Idk why but long time ago my step dad called me and told me my old teacher who bullied me died from a heart attack. I think he thought that would please me 😂

I don't know but I would not wish death on anyone

[@585989,JustcallmeNameless] Me either. I found out 2 years afterward.

Nope, when I found out one of my rapist died I threw a party

[@473155,MiserableAtBest] That would be a great relief. How did he die?
MiserableAtBest · 18-21, F
Vehicle accident. I hope he suffered
SW User
[@473155,MiserableAtBest] I wouldn't wish suffering on anyone, but I can understand why you would.

From the little info you give, I would say no. Morality is subjective and comes from wellbeing imo.

I'd say it's a slippery slope. I'd say that maybe it would be better to shift the feeling around the wording. Maybe you feel good because they can't threaten you anymore. Reconciliation and redemption would have been a more favourable outcome but I don't believe there's anything wrong with feeling glad that someone is incapable of hurting you anymore.

Indifference is the bigger statement.
Hey whatever get you through the nights

I get that.
Are you ok to talk with me?
Mikedewars · 61-69, M
Actually I think this is ok. I could definitely get over someone like you described
I despise bullies, too. I don’t think there’s anything intrinsically wrong with feeling relief that someone who caused others pain won’t be around to ever do it again.

Why do you feel anything in your mind about births and deaths?
Its a standard routine that you pass away on old age or in a mishap.
I was in the same same loop whenmy parents passed away in an auto accident and left me an orphan to fend for myself.

Completely understandable. I have a former boss I would feel the same way about
I don't think it's wrong. I'm glad his parting is a relief to you. It's as though he gave you the gift of his dying.
I don't think so... if I did I would be wrong so often.... what blythe said.

[@10406,BetweenKittensandRiots] lets not go there. Lets keep us alive
[@509481,Mikedewars] I'm not sorry to be glad jerry falwell or bush senior or reagan are gone.

I honestly believe all of them were monsters. How many countless lifes would still be on this planet (note I didn't say country?) if Senior had just lost...

They all are bloodstained as hell.

Augusto Pinochet? bye felicia... Scalia? Bye

Jerry falwell's preaching probably spread STDS like rampant because he didn't believe in condoms or abortion... he is responsible for burgeoniing crisies around STDS Around AIDS etc...

these men spent thier entire lifes making the world a worse place and I am not sorry for being glad they're gone. if there is a god he wouldn't give a shit if they were loyal to his son, he'd throw them all into hell where they belong.

Hitler? does anyone miss him?
