    I have a hard time communicating with people

    who take themselves too seriously. Believing in yourself is one thing. Believing the universe would implode without you there to run it is another entirely. Chill. Out.

    One of the most attractive qualities I can come

    across is a person with faults that accepts they have faults and is able to laugh at their faults.

    Nothing cracks me up more

    than seeing a celebrity making fun of themselves and the quirks they're best known for.

    I Have To

    Because of my condition, I have to be able to laugh about it, because I would be bitter otherwise. You should see the looks I get when I want to buy beer.

    It means they are conscious of their flaws

    I definitely bumble enough things that

    if I couldn't laugh at myself, all I would hear is other people laughing. Nothing wrong with getting a chuckle out of making mistakes. You live and you learn. Keep laughing, it's good for the soul.

    The days of glamorous airline stewardesses are

    Life is short. Enjoy the mishaps

    and believe that things happen for a reason and something better will come along for you in the right time when you least expect it. We never get out of this life alive. Laugh when you need to laugh. Even at yourself. People will thank you for not bein so uptight. :)

    I laugh at myself a lot,

    but I can't stand someone laugh at me or make jokes about me, except my closest friends, I mean the only reason why I make joke about myself or acting foolish is to avoid laughing at the others, to avoid making others feeling uncomfortable or embarrassed. that's why I like...

    Enjoy The Joke Too

    I won't laugh at someone else, but I will always laugh at myself. I will be the first person to crack a joke at my own expense. I like people who are comfortable enough with themselves that they never have a problem laughing at themselves. It shows an ease of character and enough...

    If we were in a parallel universe,

    where I don't laugh at myself, I would probably not be here typing this. I would probably feel so alone in the world. I laugh at myself because it not only makes other people laugh and feel happy, but also makes me feel happy too. I think laughing at yourself means you accept...

    They're More Fun :)

    People who can laugh at themselves are generally more fun to be around and they tend to be more likable than people who take themselves too seriously. It's also a requirement for people who desire a friendship with me. I make fun of EVERYONE. I try my best not to push any limits...

    There was a mood in the air,

    and you could almost hear that familiar sense of perfect serendipity in the atmosphere. There was such a positivity in it all. A general weekend-in-the-horizon vibe. In the distance, a purple sun was setting and locks of copper-tinted hair swung with the same sense of freedom we...
