Legend Says

According to the legend (I’m making this up), people with sarcastic humor aren’t well liked at first, or actually they are never liked, to be honest. Well, I get it... Sarcasm is not for everyone! It seems that those who have a simpler sense of humor, usually relate better to most people, or are not disliked as easily as the sarcastic ones. Yes, I’m referring to those who chuckle at everything, but do not really understand anything.

To keep this story short, it just seems to me that, those of us who are more honest, direct and unfiltered when saying things, have the common trait of sarcastic humor which identifies us.

And what can we do? Life has rewarded us not only with being smart and witty, but we also received the grace of having an excellent sense of humor. Analyze the situation and you will see that people who are not very good at honesty and sincerity, have a lesser sense of humor, and take everything personal. Could it be an inferiority issue?

You shouldn’t feel about not being liked or being blunt. This is just part of the many personalities that exist. For those with sarcastic humor, it’s important learning to be tactful, which is something that many with this trait are not very good at. It is also important to keep in mind that some people tend to be much more sensitive and do not understand this type of humor. It is necessary sometimes to be discreet so that we don’t go around hurting people around us. Don’t you agree?

The community support for our independent magazine has been amazing. Being able to connect

communities is what drives our team every month to create original content that can be enjoyed by all those who share the love for our wonderful city, for Latin America and its cultures,and for everything that makes our community so special.

We have been fortunate to have met so many interesting people during our inaugural year. It’s been our honor and privilege to be able to expand our reach and to learn the stories of so many wonderful individuals. We enjoy learning from peoples’ stories and finding common ground in their varying experiences stemming from so many different walks of life.

VIVA NOLA goes beyond being just a magazine. We are a multimedia platform that connects communities through your stories, city-wide events, and the support of impactful

initiatives that take place all over the Greater New Orleans region. I’m thankful for this year and look forward to strengthening our VIVA NOLA community in the many years to come!
