happy couples with humor

Humor Makes Happy Relationships

Humor makes happy relationships. Not to be confused with sarcasm or teasing, humor is one our most effective coping mechanisms.  Just consider the Academy-Award nominated movie Life Is Beautiful.  Humor allows us to experience an escape from life’s inescapable predicaments. Not just around us, but within us.

That is to say, humor helps us acknowledge (and accept) who we really are. The reminder here (and I often need it too!) is this: It’s vitally important to laugh at one’s self. If we don’t, we end up in defensive snafus. Sincere friends and partners crave connection and authenticity from us as much as we crave it from them.

If not, take this as a harbinger >>
