‘Child like’ humor exists in us
January 25, 2007
It’s a fast paced world today. Going to any big cities around the world and you can feel the pulse of activity is so strong, thousands of people are always in a hurry yet they co-exist together in complete solitude. Never have I seen meaningful eye contact or some friendly smiles to people around you. But there is one thing that you can do to change that.
That is through positive humor and through laughs. This will give a common platform for people to connect. All of us whether young or old, have come natural capacity for humor.
Every person has remnants of childlike behavior in us because everyone’s been through it. It’s just that through the years of growing up, we are always reminded or tuned that we must act or behave like grown ups, that is why the ‘inner child’ of us has already been crushed and almost no chance to re-appear. So many people are filled with sadness, anger, and frustration that those emotions seem to take over. However, if you can put a humorous spin on events, your heart and spirit will soar.
Smiling to a stranger, saying “hi” to someone who takes the same lift as you are, being patient with the person in front of you in a store queue, all these simple acts are easy ways to make connections and spread positive humor to others, transcending any existing or perceived brrier and paving the way for a meaningful relationship, hence leading to a better world.
