>tfw to make friends its required you be funny
>tfw had all the humor drained out of me by years of suffering
since when? I'm not particularly funny but I know how to handle jokes and so I've had good friends before
there's a clear difference between berating somebody and banter though. My best friends have been the people who poke shit at me, not the kiss ups who are overly kind. It helps that I enjoy it to an extent but I still believe there's a difference.
>tfw all you have to numb the suffering is self-deprecating humor
I think the difference is probably just perspective, calling you piece of shit because they hate you and calling you a piece of shit because whatever rason is calling you piece of shit all the same.
I don't know why I'm even talking about this though I haven't had a friend in a couple years
me either, I just look back on being called a stupid little shit fondly
Sometimes it was fun but I can't really handle it past a certain point. I actually don't think I could tolerate my old friends anymore because I already shit on myself all day.
