Making fun of yourself or self-depreciating humour is one of the hardest practice and at the same time risky as well. Humour is a soothing act when played with unharmful purpose. Life’s intricacies are put on the lighter side when humour is added to your problems.
I have seen people around me with defensive humour and offensive humour.
Defensive humour: you come across a person where he or she always puts derogatory remarks and believe me the laughter is self-initiated and the rest follows. Sometimes it’s annoying and hurtful. Most of the time the feminine gender is the victim. As the dominance of the male gender is the obvious cause of some rural and underprivileged societies.
My interaction with rural women has revealed that they are forced to accept the humorous remarks made by their male members. And it acts as fancy talks and an entertaining part of the community.
My emphasis on this topic is not related to gender discrimination rather the weaker and self-depreciation and humiliation. How many of you agree that humour must be an entertaining activity and an unintentional act? Sometimes it becomes a silent killer for the person.
On the contrary humour in the right sense is a great healer of life.
Self-deprecating humour varies from the class of society. Celebrities and famous personalities make fun of themselves and it turns into a trending style.
Now a common man can definitely make fun of himself but at his own risk . Making fun of yourself is superficial and a quite confusing phenomenon. As an ordinary man already is exposed to many societal absurdities.
Nevertheless, it makes you feel low at times but it also elates your tolerance capacity.
So go easy with the life, feel lighter by self-deprecating humour.😄😄❤❤
