    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.

    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!!

    If I couldn't laugh at how ridiculous some of the things going on in the world today are, I would have gone mad long ago.

    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.
