The power of comedy has always been one of the most astounding yet inexplicable phenomena on earth. The thought that you could change a person’s entire mood with just a few words is utterly exhilarating. In addition, by uplifting a person’s mood, that individual would have attached that positive experience to your presence.
This phenomenon enables you to foster and establish connections with diverse people. In a way, comedy, humor, or laughter, as the case may be, are some of the most magnificent binding forces known to humankind. Famous American Evangelist Billy Graham encapsulates this concept exquisitely. He said, “A keen sense of humor helps us to overlook the unbecoming, understand the unconventional, tolerated the unpleasant, overcome the unexpected, and outlast the unbearable.”
Billy was a firm believer that humor gives respite from the troubles of life and provides you with a clear mind to understand vague concepts and be more accepting of others. However, as with most polarizing concepts, not everyone agrees with Graham’s point of view.
Some philosophers claim that humor is just an escape from the hustle and bustle of our daily lives. They opine that rather than lifting your mood, it only allows you to forget about your troubles for a little while. Do I believe this? Absolutely not! Allow me to explain.
You see, in the hustle and bustle of our daily lives, there are various times we need to take a step back and relax. Even if it is just for a little while, this “break” allows us to connect with our loved ones and enjoy the little things in life. It allows us to understand what it means to be human.
Ultimately, when we are blessed with humor, it doesn’t just give temporary relief. The connections you establish with people, the time you spend with them, and the laughter you share with others are not only eternal but also utterly magnificent.

It is a business asset. It attracts and keeps friends. It lightens human burdens. It is the direct route to serenity and contentment.”
