    There Are Enough Serious Things In The World...

    We don't need to add to them. Besides - taking yourself too seriously has always seemed a bit like hard work!!!

    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. :)

    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...

    Laughter's The Best Medicine For Embarrassment

    You know, like the face plant in front of a bunch of students at school. Or even an embarrassing story about yourself. Laugh with them, it'll make you feel not only better, but also much more brave.

    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.

    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...

    Because I Can

    I laugh at myself all of the time. I do some really silly, stupid stuff sometimes. People need to be able to realize when they do silly, funny things.

    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.

    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...

    It's because of religious nuts who take the Bible literally and use it to justify their actions. Bigots are the main reason I was afraid to come out of the closet until recently.
