Sarcasm: Sucker of Joy
One temptation that I'm particularly vulnerable to is the tendency to sarcasm. It was a significant part of my youth. It is a cheap (and easy) form of humor that doesn't really lift us up. I have found that as sarcasm increases, joy decreases. I don't think that happiness and sarcasm can exist in the same place at the same time. If you are unhappy, perhaps you can try what I did: decrease your use of sarcasm.
