Do you have a sense of humor 😁?

TipsUploaded 2 months ago

Last week, I was talking to my friend whose name is 'Aditya'. He is a big fan of stand-up comedians and every day, he would spend 1 hour on Instagram seeing comedy videos.

We were friends from school time but for the last 2 months, I just not met him.

But last week, I finally met him and had a big talk about his sense of humor which changed my life forever.

Me: “Hi Aditya, where have you been for the last 2 months?”

Aditya: “I was depressed in my life because I got too serious in my career that I just forgot that I have to enjoy my work instead of waiting for a big event to come in my life which would make my life happy. So, to make myself again happy, I went to my uncle’s house (his uncle is a monk).”

I was a little confused that how can a person who saw comedy videos every day, got depressed. So, I asked him about the confusion I had.

Me: “How can you be depressed as you had a habit of seeing comedy videos every day.”

Aditya: “Oh No!!! 🤕, Don’t tell me that you can live a happy life by seeing those comedy videos on youtube or Instagram. Those videos just give you pleasure for some time then your work pressure kills you.”

Me: “But what did your uncle recommend you to do for living a happy life?”

Aditya: “He gave me two instructions, first read the book The monk who sold his Ferrari 👇”

Me: “What was the second recommendation which made your life better?”

Aditya: “The second recommendation was to listen to Sandeep Maheswari’s podcasts on Spotify or other platforms like youtube.”

Me: “Okay, I will also admire what your uncle recommended to you. But can you please tell me why we need to be laughing at ourselves?”

Aditya: “Sure, whenever you laugh at somebody else, you are abusing him in some way. So, instead of laughing at others which would make the people, whom you laugh at, your enemy. Just learn to laugh at yourself.”

Me: “But why have a sense of humor. Can’t we be serious in our career?”

Aditya: “I will answer your question, but first tell me do you see your life as complex or simple?”

Me: “Complex”

Aditya: “You got your answer, your life seems to be complex and it is in reality. So, to make yourself happy, you need to have some sense of humor”

Me: “Oh!!! 😲, now I got the point.”

I thanked him and we then left for our houses as it was then late night.

🎊🎉🎉🎊Congratulations, you have achieved the knowledge of a sense of humor.
