Humor and Contradiction

Humor is defined as a comic, absurd, or incongruous quality causing amusement. Quite effectively, it is often used to lighten the burden of painful situations. Be that as it may, why are the greatest comedians some of the saddest people in the world? Why do our eyes fill with tears when we laugh? Why do we ask, “May I ask a silly question?”

Contradictions? Possibly, but isn’t life full of contradictions? Believe it or not, contradictions can be rather therapeutic. To find the humor in your life, don’t shy away from contradictions:

§ Explore the richness of your imperfections
§ Understand that you are misunderstood
§ Be good even when you are bad
§ Find the solution by looking for the problem
§ Celebrate your happiness by never questioning it
§ Label the label before it labels you
§ In order to see, listen
§ In order to hear, stare
§ Cherish the truth, but pardon errors

May you enjoy life...with humor and contradiction.
