“A face that cannot smile is like a bud that cannot blossom, and dries up on the stalk.” Henry Ward Beecher
One of the greatest failures in people, and men in particular, is the inability or unwillingness to laugh at their own mistakes; to resistance in seeing the humour in the errors they make; and to consider the laughter of others as a judgment on who they are, rather than their friends’ genuine exhibition of amusement only at what they did.
Do you laugh at yourself? Don’t you think that if you sometimes did so, it would make the laughter of others less sharp?
Try it. It can be quite refreshing and liberating to find that you are not perfect.
