    It Actually Works..

    If laughter did not exist, I would be a very miserable person and my life would be pointless to be living. I'm always stressed out and depressed but my sense of humor and laughter is what keeps me sane!!

    So.

     Yeah... I laugh at everything. Even at inappropriate things. But, if I didn't laugh, I'd just cry and I'd rather not do that.

    It Keeps You Sane.

    it would be funny if life wasn`t so sad.i find so much of what goes on funny.life is full of just plain funny moments.it`s just were to busy or upset to notice.i try to see those moments and cherish them.they are to far and to few.
