In fact, comedy and jokes give me an opening to explain some of the hardships I’ve experienced to those that haven’t experienced them. Conversely, it also allows me to understand, in the best way that I can, other things that some groups or individuals have been through that I haven’t. Sometimes, it’s even possible that I can’t.
America’s beloved LGBTQ advocate and member, Ellen DeGeneres, is on house arrest and under investigation for sinister things, Kanye West is apparently running for president- as he supports Trump, and yes… “life is like a box of chocolates,” Tom Hanks is under investigation too!
Sometimes, things don’t work out the way you want them to. Sometimes, things hurt like hell to admit. Life has taught me this so far: it’s better to go with the ebb and flow of life’s extremes than it is to fight upstream by the threads of your prideful ego. If you can’t shed that skin, you’ll only find yourself down deep, pitying yourself and wallowing in your darkest of shadows.
