I Can Find Humor In Most Situations

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 32,506 People

    I recently received an email from a guy I dated,

    a long time ago. I had forgotten what a horrid speller he is. While we dated, I tried to overlook that and focus on the fact, he was hot. One day, I had just gotten home from work and my mom came outside, " some little kid left you a note" to my horror, there was a large poster...

    Just watched a lady run across 8 lanes of

    traffic with her 4 kids hand in hand. Crosswalk light blazing red yet I'm guessing she was in a hurry. I couldn't help but hear the theme from Frogger playing as she did her best to try to get her kids and herself killed.

    Walking along the corridor in my place of work,

    I noticed a big poster on the bulletin board that read, "Question Everything!" My immediate response was (c_c)? "Why?"

    For Better Or Worse...

    My husband is a southern, clean redneck, dipping/chewing loving man. I love my husband. So I have always heard stories about some people accidentally taking a drink after someone's dip cup. I thought, ewww how can that happen! Disgusting!... I love my husband.We were traveling to...

    At this point, I would sell my soul

    for an anti-love potion. Anything to finally get over you. For now, I just settle for a glass of milk, the answer to badly needed sleep.

    well, kinda like the image above......one depicting tragedy and the other comedy.  Here's the story:This happened when I was in my 20s.  I traveled by an overnight bus and arrived to my city in the wee hours.  Not having any bearings as to the time and feeling...

    Life is sad. I am a prime candidate of a person

    will a very sad life. But there isn't anything I can do to change that, there isn't a thing I can do to change my past. Instead all I can do is enjoy right now and laugh at the little things and be thankful for what I do have. Life is pretty hilarious when you change your...

    This stalker of mine is relentless.

    He's getting angrier and more unreasonable each day. I'm scared. One day, instead of hiding/running away from him, I mustered the courage to face him head on. I met him in the parking lot where he was waiting beside my car. I didn't give him a chance to say anything but with all...

    Life can be tough sometimes.

    However, I also think we all have a tendency to take life too seriously and obsess about things that, in the larger scheme of things, might not be all as important as we make them out to be. I feel like having a sense of humor helps keep things in perspective. I also don’t...

    What's the difference between confident

    and confidential? "Him and me; I'm confident about that." "Him and her; that is confidential."

    I always am the one cracking jokes trying to

    My (gay) bff and I, through the years,

    have grown separate ways, moving on with our lives. When I was a fresh widow, he was my comforter; when he was broken-hearted, jilted by his lover of 14 years, it was my turn to support him. Lately, whenever we invited each other, he would say fabulously, "I'm super-mega-busy...

    I like hanging around fun people,

    no one lives forever though so I've been at a few funerals. Sure, it's sad, but when I'm supposed to comment their life and death, it's hard to not crack a few jokes.

    If I can't laugh at everything what's the point

    in living!!!! Life is a joke 99% of the time. Why so serious!!! If you can't laugh at yourself and the freaks around you...you need to re evaluate your situation.

    When I met Jamie, for some reason,

    I fell for him. After our first date, I couldn't wait to run and tell my best friend about him. "He is sooo cute, but I think he is autistic. You can see him trying to communicate, but he can't, he has trouble talking." He is very smart, he attended Duke University and Cardiff...

    Some say there's always a silver lining.

    I find there's a Cotten candy lining. Humor is a wonderful gift. We should all laugh more than we cry and when it hits the fan laugh at how ridiculous life can be.

    Ridiculous

    I can't help but laugh when life gets me down, After a while of going through a rough time I have to laugh because it is so absurd when one thing after another seems to go wrong.

    In the Darkest of Hours...

    Humour is, by definition, a funny thing. It can be used with as much cruelty as a rack and pair of thumbscrews, or to lighten the deepest of pain. Having seen many people in times of despair, sudden loss or facing the inevitability and then realisation of loss, and worked...
