Suffering? In pain? Frustrated? Someone doing you wrong? Rather than going into the no good, wrong, trauma and drama default, ask “What's funny about this that I'm not getting?” For example, when I was supposed to be doing pull ups (with an elastic support band, mind you) at bootcamp the other day, but instead was just hanging there about as useful as a rubber chicken. Was I in pain and pathetic? Oh yes. What it hilarious? Heck yeah (um, rubber chicken). What about a relationship that's on a wash cycle of wring-your-heart-dry? What's funny about that? Gotta be something. Even if it's to laugh at yourself for pushing the same old wring-me-out-now button and expecting a different result. Cute, but not bright. What's great about laughing? It boosts your oxygen and feel good body bits and kicks you out of the self-pity spiral. Are you willing to see more of life's funny side?
