Thank goodness we've been able to laugh, because the perspective of humor has given us cheerfulness in the face of challenge, has made us more flexible and resilient, and it's given us the courage to face life and make necessary changes.
When we laugh we become more vulnerable and approachable. We fall into trust and drop our defenses, becoming more willing to be flexible, and accepting. This helps toward preventing or stopping conflicts.
The beauty of using humor and keeping a sense of lightness and playfulness in our life is that it helps us deal with life as it is -- the ups and downs, the unexpected changes, and the frustrations we may encounter.
