Sarcasm, Schmarcasm


Recently, I was told by someone that sarcasm wasn't one of their favorite personality traits of mine. They went further on to attempt to explain that sarcasm was just getting in the way of showing who I really was/am- a defense mechanism, rather. Well, I really apologize for that.


What I've discovered: never take too seriously someone else's explanation of your personality. That's their stuff. And honestly, what the hell do they know? Sarcasm isn't a defense mechanism of mine; I've been sarcastic since I was three and I had nothing to defend myself from. It quite often makes me laugh and most importantly, allows me to make fun of you and life's abundantly f'd up situations without being a mean bitch. Unfortunately, not everyone has such stellar senses of humor and they can't always tell when I'm joking. I won't even begin to make apologies for that; nor, will I begin to make excuses for a persons' inability to understand that sarcasm isn't some sort of implication as to what else I'm lacking or hiding in the personality department.

When you begin taking what other people say about who you are too seriously, you begin to question who you are and whether or not you should be that way. Instead of questioning yourself, you should really be wondering whether you want people in your life who instantly try to change or dissect you. My dad has always called me a sarcastic idealist, and I never get tired of hearing it. It means that my sarcasm has yet to turn into bitterness; I'm still hopeful for the world and all of the people in it.

So, I leave you with two Seussism's: two quotes that always remind me that I am exactly who I should be and anyone who has a problem with it, can suck it move right along.

"Be who you are and say what you feel because those 
who mind don't matter and those that matter don't mind."

"Today you are You, that is truer than true. 
There is no one alive who is Youer than You."
