7 Reasons you need a sarcastic friend in your life
Sarcastic friend! Naturally, you are entitled to choose who you spend most of your time with. The people you spend most time with are the people who will have the biggest influence on your life.
You would want to open yourself up to different kinds of people so you can figure out what type of company you would typically enjoy keeping.
But this article is going to focus on one type of personality in particular. If you haven’t considered becoming best-friends with a person who is sarcastic, then this article is going to try to change your mind on the matter.
Hopefully, by the time you finish reading this, you will be convinced to actually give that sarcastic person in your group of friends a chance to get closer to you.
Here are few reasons why a person who is sarcastic can make a really good best friend:
1. It will help you get jokes
If you’re not one with a very dynamic sense of humor, a sarcastic friend will show you the world. Being able to laugh at sarcasm will give you a broader sense of humor, and let’s be honest, funniness is an important trait in a friend.
2. You need a snippy friend to have your back
A sarcastic friend is the perfect person to have your back when what you need is some quick, snappy, sassy one liners to shut someone down.
3. Because you shouldn’t take things so seriously
There are times when you should take your life seriously, and times when you shouldn’t. I generally believe that every single situation, no matter how bad it is, can be made a little lighter with some jokes.
Realizing that it’s never the end of the world becomes easier when you have someone lighthearted around to bring you back to earth.
4. And a cynical world view can sometimes be useful
From time to time, you need a perspective on the world that’s a little bit cynical. Sometimes things are designed the way they are for a reason that’s of human making, not because of some divine purpose.
You need your sarcastic friend to point that out for you! Being idealistic is wonderful, and your sarcastic friend needs your romantic attitude as much as you need their more realistic one.
5. Because sometimes you’re being ridiculous
Sometimes your problems are stupid. Sometimes you’re stupid. But that’s okay! Everyone has stupid problems and acts stupidly some times.
Your sarcastic friend is the one who makes you see the forest for the trees, and will be coming over and cracking wise to pull you out of a slump when you’ve locked yourself away for a week crying and pining over someone you dated for a month who didn’t work out.
Your sarcastic friend is the one who puts things into perspective.
6. They never walk on eggshells
They speak their mind, not minding if they are going to offend you or anybody else. Of course, they avoid sugar coating things.
Also, they are not afraid to stir things up a bit and see how people react to their comments.
When you think about it, it’s good that they are that way. At least you know they’ll tell you the truth no matter how hurtful it might be.
7. But mostly for the LOLs, of course
A good reason to have a friend in your life is for laughter. Support, yes, but so much of support and connection comes from humor. Embrace your sarcastic friend/s and see your life become better for the LOLs!
