    Laughing With Myself

    They say laughter is the best medicine, and it's true. But being able to laugh at yourself makes it better. For example, when I was about. 6 or 7, I was running into the airport to see my dad, who had just returned from a business trip. I was so excited to get inside, I forgot...

    Humour Saves Lives

    I think by building a sense of humour towards yourself, it really helps you through some scary or upsetting times! Humour is the best way you can be there for yourself, cause it's sort of like the genuineness of someone else making you smile, but having it without realising you...

    There are so many thoughts in my head, many suprise me and I have to laught at myself. Some I don't tell others about because I'd get that 'your wierd look', again. Things I see will just click and I giggle. Situations make me chuckle. Other things I see make me smile and...

    Why Just Yesterday I Had A Good One.

    I really hate bugs and creepy crawly things. So I was bringing in the groceries from the car, across the moist grass, across the sidewalk and into the house. My hands were quite full as I was loaded down to save a trip. I almost make it into the kitchen to set the foodie stuffs...

    Laughing While Crying

    I used to crack up whenever I would walk infront of a mirror and I was crying...yes, did really say that. Whenever I was crying, I would walk infront of a mirror, and just laugh and laugh and laugh. I think it was just a phase, but it sure as heck was adorable. (: Lol

    Unseriously Taken By Myself...

    I constantly laugh at myself. Some silly thought, a mistake, a weird conclusion. You know. I even laugh sometimes when seeing myself in the mirror. To the point I took a way the mirrors. To no avail, because when staring at that bleak spot on the wall with this stupid nail...

    I Can't Help But Laugh At Myself.

    Right now, at this time of transition in my life, I can't help but take a step back and have a good hard look at the decisions and choices I've made.  What a joke! ~ Who's running this show anyway? ~

    It's Only Funny Until Someone Gets Hurt, Then It's Hillarious

    I was out skating with my friends at a park and we were playing chicken on our boards. I always win chicken, if that's bad i don't know, but it was funny. Then dominique, a guy, decides to be brave. I needed ibuprofine for a few days after but we couldn't stop laughing. Now that...

    Sense Of Humour

    I never forget what my english teacher in high school told me; she said people who laugh at themselves; have a good sense of humour. I believe laughing at yourself sometimes can show your fun, humorous side.

    Bwahaha So True.

    Sometimes my great self-pity, emotional issues, fear of relationships, and loneliness is depressing. Sometimes I cry and mope for hours on end and wish I'd never been born.Sometimes, however, it's hilarious. Like this morning when my counselor assured me I'd find the right guy...
