    Laughter

    If you can't laugh at yourself from time to time, what can you laugh at at all?People tend to get ground down in misery, it's all around us, on the news, in the papers and worst of all it the daily tripe in soaps...I say everybody need to laugh at themselves from time to time...

    I Love And Like People Who Can Laugh At Themselves

    These kind of people usually are easy to get along with! Anyone who can laugh at their mistakes are simple and humble people. They usually have an underlying sense of humor. They usually know that they are not perfect and therefore they can accept and understand others...

    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.

    Angry People

    Seriously. Nobody can joke about anything anymore without somebody taking offense. I love to make people laugh at poking fun of myself!! I can get the crowd rolling when I say the stuff that bothers me about me!

    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...

    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!!!

    The days of glamorous airline stewardesses are

    gone. Recently I read that calling a flight attendant 'stewardess' is one of the sure-fire ways to obtain lousy service. And they're not big on anyone pushing the orange 'flight attendant' button overhead either ... unless there's some medical emergency going down.A flight...

    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.

    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...

    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...

    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. :)
