The Healing Power Of Finding Humor In Difficult Situations

“Humor is mankind’s greatest blessing.”– Mark Twain

There are two kinds of people in this world, the ones that see the glass half empty, and the ones that see it half full. Life is not easy for anyone of us, but some people have the skill to focus on the positive sides of it, while others dwell on negativity.

You are lucky if you can find humor in difficult situations. This means that you are strong and emotionally intelligent so you can cope with whatever life brings.

Every day might bring a new obstacle, a new challenge that is tough to handle, but the ones that find humor in all of it overcome it quicker. They realize that it is a complete waste of time to stress over things they cannot control.

Instead, they believe that each hardship is a way for them to grow, develop, and improve.

Charlie Chaplin once said, “To truly laugh, you must be able to take your pain and play with it.”

Those that can turn their pain into humor, and have a well-developed sense of it are rare and a true joy to meet. These people know that laughter heals wounds, and they joke around even when they are deeply hurt.

In the words of Laura Ingalls Wilder, “a good laugh overcomes more difficulties and dissipates more dark clouds than any other one thing.”

A good laugh has countless health benefits. It soothes tension, comforts, relieves stress, fights fear, boosts immunity and the work of many body organs, alleviates pain, and improves mood.

From a present point of view, don’t you find some past events hilarious, even though they broke your heart back then? Therefore, let’s stop being so serious and take things so personally. Sometimes, things that seem devastating become meaningless over time.

Laughter is always appropriate and lifts the heavy burden. Even for a few seconds, grab the opportunity to escape and welcome the release. We won’t be here together, so find the courage and strength to live each day as if it was your last.
