Sarcasm: Losing it…

In Uncategorized on January 30, 2010 at 5:28 pm

I know (as I am sure you do) people who use sarcasm. In small doses, it is acceptable, but there are those who use it constantly and it is not healthy to do so. As somebody once quipped: “sarcasm is the lowest form of wit” meaning that it is a lower grade version of humor wrapped in a certain measure of ridicule wherein the person using it resorts to it.

Many counsellors have noted that sarcasm in excess is neither healthy or warranted. There are limits to how much sarcasm should be used as it often belittles others and makes them feel bad about themselves. Its effect may not be visible, but over time it can cause great distress.

We should use sarcasm sparingly or not at all and count to 5 seconds before blurting out what could be innocent but hurtful to others.

Keep on winning…
