i am the kind of person i will make fun of anything, specaily myself for things i have wrong with me, i often show people how i have to walk sometime to make fun of myself wearing my knee braces.. but i have some who do get upset at me for always kidding and joking around about anything and everything. they tell me i need to be more serouis about life. mostly about my medcail issues. i had someone asked me how i can i go around and make fun of myself when my out long term out look sucks? i tell them hey it beats being depress all the time, been there and done that for about 4 yrs and still deal with depression but hey i am alive

I do take life very seriously now. Yes it is because I feel that now I am a man with addeded responsibilities. My family needs me and my time a lot. In this situation, I cannot afford to take the life lightly. Ofcourse, there was time when I did not take it seriously. I would do whatever I wanted to without worrying about anything else. It was because I felt that my life belonged to me only and I had all the rights to do what I liked. You know the time changes and you have to change with it.

That is the right spirit. It better befits a man to laugh at the life than to lament over it. Keep the light spirit up and do not loose courage.

We pretty much have a similar disposition in life. The happy-go-lucky type who manages to draw out something funny from the subtlest of things. It pays to be this way I believe because it saves us from unnecessary depression, and making people around us laugh is a ++. It just makes this world a better place to live in, when more people are smiling.

I am also aperson that takes life far too seriously at time. I tend to forget to unwind and let loose. I have been trying hard to overcome this, its very hard, but is getting easier with help from friends and things like mylot to ocupy spare time.

I think that in the past I have been to serious and it just makes to too miserable. It's fun to be spontaneous and just live life to be happy, is all. I think that you really just have to find a middle ground, if you're well rounded, it's the best thing you can ever be.
