When we can’t laugh, it’s usually because we’re afraid to.
Fear is laughter’s greatest deterrent, but where humor is concerned, our fears are groundless.
Unless it is your intention to hurt someone or to isolate yourself with your humor, it’s not likely to happen. On the rare occasion when it does, the only thing you have to fear is saying, “I’m sorry.”
Having good intentions plus the willingness to say “I was wrong” allows you to fearlessly trust the inclinations of your humor nature.
