to Sharpen Your Sense of Humor and Improve Your Relationships
Humor has long
been considered one of the most effective tools to judge the quality
of any relationship. If there is laughter present you can be sure
the relationship is a healthy one. When the laughter ceases the
relationship is on the down slide. If you want to have more fulfilling
relationships you might want to consider sharpening your sense of
humor as a great place to start.
five ways to improve your sense of humor and improve your relationships
in the process.
1. Begin to
cultivate an atmosphere of humor and laughter in your relationships
by focussing on the funny things in life and enjoying the laughter
they evoke. Soon you will be seeing humor all over and enjoying
2. If you don't
laugh as much as you used to and want to correct the situation start
associating with humorous, fun loving people and avoid the downers.
3. Learn to
laugh at yourself. If you don't you leave the job to others. So
many people are unable to laugh at themselves because of their own
insecurities and fears. We are afraid to look foolish in the eyes
of others and appear to be incompetent. It is important to realize
that we all make mistakes and when we do a good laugh makes the
mistake seem trivial and human.
cartoons and jokes and put them on display on the fridge or the
bulletin board for all to see and enjoy. Make sure to avoid racist,
sexist or filthy humor. There is plenty of good clean humor to go
around without resorting to these. Remember that there is a difference
between dirty and earthy humor. I personally like earthy humor.
I don?t appreciate dirty material.
5. Use humor
to neutralize conflict in your relationships. When things get tense
use self deprecating humor to lighten things up. I remember one
evening having an argument with my wife, Carol. In the heat of the
moment she said something totally out of character. She said something
hurtful. In my surprise I looked at her and said, ? Carol, when
you say things like that you stoop to my level.? She started to
laugh and so did I. It wasn?t long before things were back to normal.
a sense of humor is learned, not inherited. You can sharpen your
sense of humor if you really want to. When you do, you will find
that your relationships become richer and more rewarding and that
people find you more attractive and fun to be with. This alone makes
improving your sense of humor worth the effort.
