Is a funny bone an important part of who you are?

Having a too serious mindset isn’t that great all the time. It can lead to taking things way too seriously and create big problems, negative feelings and events from pretty much nothing. Lightening up can help you to drop unimportant stuff and leave you with more time and energy for the really important things in your life. Are you too serious or do you know someone who is? Is it a drain on your system? What besides, lighten up, can you tell somebody to get them to actually lighten up?

I always manage to bump my funny bone on corners. I hate that pins and needles feeling. I have to tell my arm to stop being so serious.

Without my sense of humor, life would be unrelievedly bleak.

Oh I love this question. I live by this… I can’t stop growing older, but I’m never going to grow up. I love to laugh and be silly .. it keeps me young at heart. Life is so serious all the time… some things you just have to take seriously, of course, but I love to find the light hearted side of life. I would just make someone laugh or smile and you don’t have to “tell” them anything to lighten up.

yep. i dont take anything too seriously, unless it clearly needs to be taken seriously like a relationship or a death or whatever. otherwise i make light of most situations and i laugh at almost everything. i have compared myself to 85/15 ground beef. 85% of me doesnt look too deeply at anything or take anything to seriously and is mostly silly but every once in a while the fatty portion of me, the 15% comes out. it’s rare though. few people see it. and i dont mind. i’d rather be laughing at everything all the time than serious and boring.

Nope. I find no room for humor, and I am serious 100% of the time. ~

If it wouldn’t exist the funny bone in me it wouldn’t exist me.
Last year my dad had a minor crash and my brother told me and next to him was my cousin who had a funny face so I started to laugh like a nuts and since than everybody thinks that I’m a little bit off the chart.

” Laughter reduces the level of stress hormones like cortisol, epinephrine (adrenaline), dopamine and growth hormone. It also increases the level of health-enhancing hormones like endorphins, and neurotransmitters. Laughter increases the number of antibody-producing cells and enhances the effectiveness of T cells. All this means a stronger immune system, as well as fewer physical effects of stress.”
Health guide quote!

Laughter is good for the soul and certainly good for our health as noted the above statement. Having talked and been around people who are elderly, noticed one thing that is common with all them, they laugh a lot and are fun and they are positive people.

Mark Twain once said, “against the assault of laughter nothing can stand!” Laughter is contagious and brings joy to everyone around you!

So, be happy and laugh and the World will laugh with you!

Yes. My regular daily fare is serious above and beyond. I don’t mind being serious, but if something inspires my warped sense of humor, that is good too. Humor, even sarcastic, is my escape from reality.

80 percent of my skeleton is made up of funny bones.

I’ve seen some serious shit and rarely fail to find something funny in at least some part of it.

The only semi-successful technique I have come across for lightening someone else up is to gently point out the humor in a given situation.

But just like my thigh bone can’t make them walk, my funny bone may not propel them either.


Yes, make no bones about it! Lol!
