  • Fun with Laughter

One week day afternoon, I decided to go to the movies. By the time I got there, the previews had started and it was dark inside. I found an aisle seat and sat down. I was aware there weren't many people in the audience, but I was really embarrassed when the lights came up at the end and I discovered I had sat down by the only other person in the theater. I still wonder if he thinks I was a pervert of some kind.

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.
