When we talk to someone we love , who is down, why is it that if we are the sick and twisted one… first we console them….only to cajole them at the end… probably because we cannot bear seeing someone we love that much ,suffer, unless it is a laugh attack because we say something… weird?
It is hard to smile ,when the world suffers , yet here we are , when someone’s spirit is down … and then we trip them … resulting in verbal shenanigans ,simply because we want that person to realize that resistance is futile….You will be assimilated…….into our loving banter fest , but instead of stripping you of who you are… we load you up on such antics , so that you realize , that no matter how intense the situation …. we are there to pull you up with a rope should you find yourself in that hole …. while giggling and looking funny doing it..
Some of my phone conversations are just this way….
If I am down too…. the other person knows ,if they know me well ,that it works on me as well. It’s a matter of survival…. to boost morale…. with a high morale …. comes a higher survival rate in my humble opinion….
