On March 4, 2022, I learned a new and wonderful word. I was reading Dr. Goodword’s website alfaDictionary, and I saw an entry for confelicity, which, as Dr. Goodword says, is “pleasure in someone else’s happiness.” As Dr. Goodword also says, confelicity “is a much better antonym for schadenfreude than firgun.”
