Jake asked me today if I could think of a word to describe a feeling of pleasure or joy that you feel when someone enjoys something that you enjoy. Something like empathic euphoria.

I asked a few friends and the best we were collectively able to do was freudenfreude.

Not that freudenfreude isn't awesome, but any other suggestions? Jake's life may be at stake.

I think the word you're looking for is "validation"...
