“To truly laugh, you must be able to take your pain, and play with it.” ~Charlie Chaplin~
Life is not as sweet as honey, it is full of challenges and contests, it makes us not relax, and feel alive. Why do the most outstanding masterpieces contain the plots inspired from life? Because nothing is really invented and even the most terrible tragedies ever written were inspired from reality as well as the most absurd comedies. But the greatest comedies are inspired and written by those unhappy and sorrowful people who could withstand in that battle called life.
It is very difficult to open the eyes and look at ourselves because nothing is done perfectly and very often there is nothing to be proud of, none could affirm he lived his life perfectly; but where is imperfection, there is eccentricity and originality and there is much to tell about.
The one who can laugh at himself is one who lives in the most possibly correct way. Because it is what we can do the best, nevertheless it’s not easy to laugh and smile when you feel like a looser and you want just to hide from all around you. Sometimes to hide is the simplest solution and it will not help you, but to continue being yourself unless you are imperfect is the way to motivate people around you and keep yourself strong and optimistic.
You can’t change your problems and you can’t change the world when you think everyone is against you, just accept it and take easier your pain as it wouldn’t be yours, and it will really stray from you.
Self- irony is the greatest art. To laugh at yourself means to laugh at all difficulties and problems; nothing can stop the one who can transform his grief into someone’s joy; and God blesses your pain because it makes you stronger !!!
