There will allways be three kinds of people. The ones who live by this saying, the ones who do not think this way and the ones who pretend to care for others but don't. I'll be honest. I do care for others, but there are certain moments when something relativelly harmless happens to someone and it is funny, yet I'd rather see that it wouldn't happen to me. And though I'm not of the oppinion, but it is mostly true what has been said by the Rogers.

I think you are the philosopher. You could see the complete pictures. It's more than yes or not, or true or false opinion. But, you could see the other opinion. Actually, Rogers opinion is not universally truth. It's usually true.

This is the easy way and anyone did ,but what you did if something happen to you.The more people not only did see it like funny but they don't like anyone laugh with them (of course they forget that them react at same situation was exactly this...they laughed)I know is hard but for me is important you can have the power to laugh first with yourself, your mistake ,whatever funny happen to you or you did ,before anyone else.Show to me you have self-knowledge, self-confidence,and you are fair person.A small reaction can make you understand many things about the character of a person.

Ha..ha.. That's good. You mean that we must have self-laughter..!? Wow, it's very difficult, but we should try it. I like your word, the power to laugh ourselves.. It's not only the power, it's an art too..Thanks for the opinion. It makes me laughing with myself..

You are right. If we want to see ourselves and admit it, then we may laugh on it. Thanks for the opinion. I really appreciate it.

no, everything is not funny for ME, even if when its happening with others. i can never abide by this philosophy and it indeed hurts on seeing ppl going through deplorable plights. however, this is but when we are referring to sufferings and pains. i work in a hospital and see so many ppl dogged with disease. it can be a very healing experience for someone to empathize with you. i am essentially an intrusive caregiver who would, no matter, support or help out someone on road or home, almost alike. i feel, when someone effectively says 'I care for you', it also says 'I can do that, I can care for myself, my family.' so its more out of compassionate selfhelp. on a lighter note, i do find things funny like when someone trips or slips or stammers, very rarely though, but this is not out of real bitterness or vengeance. i am the kind who invites others to laugh at me, with me when i am the prey. thank you
