I feel like I’m walking into a private conversation here. But, one thing that has helped me overcome, as it were, depression and emotional devastation, was to come up with pointed comedy. That is, satirize that which has exerted an influence on me.
I’m not speaking of a cure in totality, but of exponentially rewarding moments of freedom due to “owning it” by satirizing it or approaching it with intense sarcasm.
For me, the process of finding the comedy in it was as much if not more healing then the laughter itself.
I shouldn’t have written this.
