Achieve a kind of control over your tongue to talk sweetly. Some people have to go through penance for that. For them to talk sweetly is like taking rhubarb again. They just cannot talk sweetly…. In that sarcasm, they have a special pleasure. Try to say something sweetly. You can be humorous without being sarcastic. Humour is the best way.
What is the need to be sarcastic? There is no need at all. It is a sign of cowardliness, sarcasm. It is a sign that you want to hurt others, that you are not straightforward. So try to avoid sarcastic talking. If you are sarcastic, better tell your tongue to behave itself.
