Diarrh entry : reflecting on sarcasms power

Written by Awsten Knight on Wed Jun 12 2024

Hey, so I guess I'm supposed to write some deep, introspective diary entry about sarcasm or whatever. Cool. Not really my thing, but here goes nothing.

Sarcasm is like my superpower. It's my go-to defense mechanism, the shield I use to protect myself from getting too emotionally invested in anything. It's easier to make a snarky comment than to actually let someone see how much they're affecting me.

But lately, I've been thinking about the power of sarcasm - how it can be both a blessing and a curse. On one hand, it keeps people at arm's length and prevents them from getting too close. But on the other hand, it can also push people away before they even have a chance to get to know the real me.

I remember this one time when someone told me that they couldn't tell if I was being serious or not because everything that came out of my mouth was dripping with sarcasm. And yeah, maybe that hurt a little bit because underneath all the jokes and witty remarks is just me trying to navigate through life like everyone else.

It's funny though - how something as simple as sarcasm can shape who we are as individuals. It becomes our identity in some ways; our way of communicating with others without having to reveal too much about ourselves.

I don't know where I'm going with this ramble... Maybe there isn't really an end goal here other than just letting these thoughts spill out onto paper (or screen). Sarcasm will always be part of who I am - for better or for worse - but maybe it's time for me to start using it more selectively instead of constantly hiding behind its sharp edges.

So yeah...that's enough reflection for one day. Time for some more sarcastic comments and witty comebacks because hey, that's just who Awsten Knight is after all.
