15 Things to Remember if You Love A Sarcastic Person

15 Things to Remember if You Love A Sarcastic Person

Loving a sarcastic person comes with rewards – and a lot of pain. For the sarcastic other, it takes a unique set of skills to continue to play tricks with other people. How much you can appreciate this depends on how much you know the traits of a sarcastic person.

1. They always make an unforgettable first impression

Meeting a sarcastic person for the first time means you either get appreciated or get castigated by them. How you respond is what will determine how terrible or how interesting the meeting went.

2. They are never direct with their emotions

It is always difficult to know where their allegiance lies or how they express their feelings. “I hate you” could mean “I love you” and “I love you” could mean “I hate you”.

3. They are not always sarcastic

Don’t always assume their cocky persona belies insincerity. Even when they say “you are the most beautiful person in the room” this doesn’t mean they feel otherwise. It is just the unusual and arrogant way they try express their failures.

4. They do remember everything

They are not so forgetful to remember your embarrassing moments and your failures. In fact they still have souvenirs to prove how terrible you looked or you were when your crush kissed your greatest rival.

5. They show affections with mean comments

The meaner the comment or the remark, the more affection they have for you. Doing this isn’t to break your heart but to eliminate whatever boundaries that exist between you two.

6. They cannot be quickly fooled

Like dogs, they are able to sniff and know who you really are beyond whatever screen you present to them. Perhaps it is because they have irony wired in them; they can perceive any of our pretence from a mile away.

7. They enjoy sarcasm aimed at them

Sarcasm to them is a two way thing. They like it when you make fun of them, because this offers them an opportunity to aim it directly back at you.

8. They appreciate it when you do not take them too seriously

They see sarcasm or making fun of you as ideal and necessary. They would feel validated and appreciate you more if you do not take their sarcasm so seriously.

9. They are impulsive

Sarcasm is more like an involuntary action. Sometimes it just spills out of them even when they do not mean or intend to throw a joke at you.

10. They can be serious too

Even when they spend so much time mocking others and making fun of them, there are times they are also sincere. Yet it is difficult to discern this because they are used to being sarcastic.

11. They savour any meeting with another sarcastic person

They are always excited about meeting another of their kind as this offers them the opportunity to improve their art and engage in one of those sarcastic duels.

12. They are not great at offering compliments

They prefer making a situation rather than embracing the idea that you really deserve a compliment. They would make such times to show how sarcastic they can really be.

13. They are not great at accepting compliments

It is difficult to really mean a “thank you” because they see the world just the same way they have presented it to others – nothing is as serious as it seems.

13. They make people uncomfortable around them

People really do not know how to respond to them, because their sense of humour is not always so appealing.

14. They also have feelings

Because they are sarcastic doesn’t make them less emotional or robotic. It is just that they have a way of bottling up their emotions with a sarcastic front.

15. They are able to speak out

In the real sense sarcastic people are great at reading people’s thoughts and speaking out. While others may hole up their intentions, sarcastic people know how to break the ice and add a little humour with it.

12 Things You Should Remember When Feeling Lost in Life

12 Things You Should Remember When Feeling Lost in Life

Even the most charismatic people you know, whether in person or celebrities of some sort, experience days where they feel lost in life and isolated from everyone else.

While it’s good to know we aren’t alone in this feeling, the question still remains:

What should we do when we feel lost and lonely?

Here are 12 things to remember:

1. Recognize That It’s Okay!

The truth is, there are times you need to be alone. If you’ve always been accustomed to being in contact with people, this may prove difficult.

However, learning how to be alone and comfortable in your own skin will give you confidence and a sense of self reliance.

We cheat ourselves out of the opportunity to become self reliant when we look for constant companionship.

2. Use Your Lost and Loneliness as a Self-Directing Guide

You’ve most likely heard the expression: “You have to know where you’ve been to know where you’re going.”

Loneliness also serves as a life signal to indicate you’re in search of something. It’s when we’re in the midst of solitude that answers come from true soul searching.

Remember, there is more to life than what you’re feeling.

3. Realize Loneliness Helps You Face the Truth

Being in the constant company of others, although comforting sometimes, can often serve as a distraction when we need to face the reality of a situation.

Solitude cuts straight to the chase and forces you to deal with the problem at hand. See it as a blessing that can serve as a catalyst to set things right!

4. Be Aware That You Have More Control Than You Think

Typically, when we see ourselves as being lost or lonely, it gives us an excuse to view everything we come in contact with in a negative light. It lends itself to putting ourselves in the victim mode, when the truth of the matter is that you choose your attitude in every situation.

No one can force a feeling upon you! It is YOU who has the ultimate say as to how you choose to react.

5. Embrace the Freedom That the Feeling of Being Alone Can Offer

Instead of wallowing in self pity, which many are prone to do because of loneliness, try looking at your circumstance as a new-found freedom.

Most people are in constant need of approval of their viewpoints. Try enjoying the fact that  you don’t need everyone you care about to support your decisions.

6. Acknowledge the Person You Are Now

Perhaps you feel a sense of loneliness and confusion because your life circumstances have taken you away from the persona that others know to be you.

Perhaps the new you differs radically from the old. Realize that life is about change and how we react to that change. It’s okay that you’re not who you used to be.

7. Keep Striving to Do Your Best

Often those who are feeling isolated and unto themselves will develop a defeatist attitude. They’ll do substandard work because their self esteem is low and they don’t care.

Never let this feeling take away your sense of worth! Do your best always and when you come through this dark time, others will admire how you stayed determined in spite of the obstacles you had to overcome.

And to live your best life, you must do this ONE thing: step out of your comfort zone.

8. Don’t Forget That Time Is Precious

When we’re lost in a sea of loneliness and depression, it’s all too easy to reflect on regrets of past life events. This does nothing but feed negativity and perpetuate the situation.

Instead of falling prey to this common pitfall, put one foot in front of the other and acknowledge every positive step you take. By doing this, you can celebrate the struggles you overcome at the end of the day.

9. Remember, Things Happen for a Reason

Every circumstance we encounter in our life is designed to teach us and that lesson is in turn passed on to others.

Sometimes we’re fortunate enough to figure out the lesson to be learned, while other times, we simply need to have faith that if the lesson wasn’t meant directly for us to learn from, how we handled it was observed by someone who needed to learn.

Your solitude and feeling of lost, in this instance, although painful possibly, may be teaching someone else.

10. Journal During This Time

Record your thoughts when you’re at the height of loneliness and feeling lost. You’ll be amazed when you reflect back at how you viewed things at the time and how far you’ve come later.

This time (if recorded) can give you a keen insight into who you are and what makes you feel the way you feel.

11. Remember You Aren’t the First to Feel This Way

It’s quite common to feel as if we’re alone and no one else has ever felt this way before. We think this because at the time of our distress, we’re silently observing others around us who are seemingly fine in every way.

The truth is, we can’t possibly know the struggles of those around us unless they elect to share them. We ALL have known this pain!

Try confiding in someone you trust and ask them how they deal with these feelings when they experienced it. You may be surprised at what you learn.

12. Ask for Help If the Problem Persists

The feeling of being lost and lonely is common to everyone, but typically it will last for a relatively short period of time.

Most people will confess to, at one time or another, being in a “funk.” But if the problem persists longer than you feel it should, don’t ignore it.

When your ability to reason and consider things rationally becomes impaired, do not poo poo the problem away and think it isn’t worthy of attention. Seek medical help.

Afraid to ask for help? Here’s how to change your outlook to aim high!

Final Thoughts

Loneliness and a sense of feeling lost can in many ways be extremely painful and difficult to deal with at best. However, these feelings can also serve as a catalyst for change in our lives if we acknowledge them and act.

Above anything, cherish your mental well being and don’t underestimate its worth. Seek professional guidance if you’re unable to distinguish between a sense of freedom for yourself and a sense of despair.
