Laugh At Yourself

Updated: Mar 13, 2019

Not all people know how to deal with embarrassing situations. If you are the type that stresses and cannot see grace when something strange happens, it's exciting to learn to live life more lightly. Isn't it much better when we get along with the problems and laugh at them?

Laughing at oneself indicates courage and self-confidence.

According to psychologists, what determines a more enjoyable view of life is how each person interprets the facts. Many may see a catastrophe where others see grace. Overall, people have trouble interpreting reality optimistically. When you have a more positive view of events, it's easier to focus on talents rather than defects.

Laughter of oneself makes for good health

Laughter and optimism are linked to better health. Accepting certain types of jokes requires important social skills that can be hampered in conditions such as autism and schizophrenia. Understanding the mechanics of humor can transform the way you see yourself. Sometimes it even gets easier to recognize where you've gone wrong and how you can improve. At other times, this may just be a reminder that we need to take everything, including ourselves, less seriously.
