I am a sucker for using sarcasm as a way to cover up how I really feel. I joke about things to just try to hide how bad my anxiety really is. But I am also super sensitive. Jokes can hurt me.
They usually do. It took my husband a while while we were dating to learn that joking about certain things wind up in arguments or I end up crying.
I use sarcasm to shelter my feelings. To shelter the way I really feel.
My anxiety is so bad. It is always there. It’s like that annoying friend that everyone hates but still tolerates. That always tells everyone what is wrong with everything. You know, the type of friend that downs every little idea you might have. Try having that in your thoughts every second of every day.
I know this post is short. I am sorry. Really, I am. I just thought of this and said ‘hey maybe others undestand and wanna see it too.’
Do you use sarcasm and jokes to make things a little easier.
Have you ever felt that your jokes make things more awkward? I feel like I make the awkward situations. But then again, that could just be my anxiety talking.
