What if I don't feel like laughing?

You may need to cry which is equally healing. Tears are the healing not the pain. You may need to have a "tantrum" which is also healing. Watch the little children. They use their natural healing processes with masterful ease. They care for their pain with laughter, crying, and rage without wondering if it's okay or which process is best. They follow their emotions.

Common questions about laughter

How can I laugh at things that hurt?

Sadly for many people this question prevents them from using the healing power of laughter to deal with the pain. Many of us are unaware that we laugh because we hurt. Abandoning our laughter because of overwhelming pain simply keeps us feeling victimized. Tapping into laughter as nature meant for us to do restores our personal power so we no longer feel like victims. We are able to cope with our pain.
