Laughing with Others in Recovery


It’s important to have laughter in your life. Laughter just makes you happy, even if something isn’t funny and you are having a bad day, force yourself to laugh at nothing. For some reason, it makes me feel better. In recovery, everyone makes mistakes. When I do, I know I get really hard on myself and I beat myself up. It took me a long time to find this out, but being able laugh at yourself and learn from your mistakes is the only way to fully grow in my life, at least. Laugh with others, not at others is an important rule to remember. Encourage others to use this tool, it can’t hurt, it could only make things better.
