I Can Laugh At Myself

    I do laugh at myself.

    It could be a funny and embarrassing thing I did, a joke that I came up with or something sad like how my life is currently moving.

    Don't be such a tightwad guys/gals!

    Laughter is the best medicine and it's always a good thing to have daily. There's nothing wrong about being able to laugh at yourself once in a while. We're all imperfect creatures! Rather than despairing at our problems and imperfections, we should embrace them and learn to...

    Today, a friend that I love dearly told me

    that I always look like a naughty librarian to him and that it was a "good thing". So of course, I had to inquire from some other friends what they thought. They totally confirmed that I always look like a very naughty librarian. I asked them was that a good thing...each of them...

    I'm pretty good at being able to laugh at

    myself...it lets my friends be comfortable with joking around with me. Sometimes, I find it surprising when a joke hurts one of my friends, because they can't laugh at themselves as much. So I more careful about what I joke about now.

    I make fun of myself in my conscienceness,

    and realize my own flaws. I can look back at the way I handled a situation and laugh at myself for being edgy and impulsive. Almost as if there is a rift between who I am and who my mind is. Maybe I'm just egocentric and selfish, narrating myself. The Human mind is incredible...

    I had a good laugh at myself.

    I was half awake and in a hurry for coffee. I fill the water and get a new filter, but instead of coffee grounds, I pour sugar in the filter. Even put it the coffee maker before I caught myself. Made a mess pouring it back out. I wonder how that would've turned out?

    When I was in the 7th grade I was sitting at

    the top of the bleachers for a school assembly. On the way down I tripped. I tumbled to the bottom. My boot flew off on my way down. I was incredibly embarrassed, everyone was looking at me. I didn't know what to do. So I just started laughing and hopped over to retrieve my shoe...

    Shopping Cart Rage

    One thing I have noticed

    and I don't know whether to be 'proud' of it but I am certainly happy with it, Is that I can truly laugh most things off and I can laugh at myself most days. To be honest, At times laughing at myself or things that happen to me etc.. It's a good thing, otherwise I'd be miserable...

    "There is no point in taking life too seriously.

    You'll never make it out alive." I never developed the ability to laugh at myself until I developed more confidence in myself. When you have confidence in yourself, you don't give a rip what other people think. I can't count how many times I have been working and squatted down...

    Humour is a fantastic way to disarm people

    and situations. And growing up I found it a great defence against all those who attempted to bully me. These days I just consider myself 80% human&20% idiot!!
