Love & Laughter

In a recent conversation with my daughter, I told her I felt one of the most important traits for a successful relationship was having a sense of humor. Curious about whether others would agree with my opinion, I asked for input on social media. Amongst more admirable characteristics, a good sense of humor made the list.

Here's why I think humor is important. When a discussion turns heated, or hits a brick wall, instead of emotions spiraling into negative territory, the ability to interject a well-timed jest can lighten and diminish a previously stressful situation. Humor can often change perspectives, or amend attitudes making resolution attainable.

Perhaps I've learned to appreciate this attribute more as I've gotten older, but I would much rather spend time with someone who doesn’t take things or themselves too seriously. An occasional belly laugh is like a shot of good medicine for any and all relationships, and most especially with someone you love.

Proverbs 12:25 Anxiety in a man’s heart weighs it down, But a good word makes it glad. NASB
