    Oh absolutely.  I learned a long time ago to let go of the sensitive nature I had in order to come out of my shell.  Sometimes I do the dumbest things and laugh at myself out loud.   That's really funny because no one knows what I'm laughing at until I tell them!  LOL

      I have a harder time laughing at myself, but I'm getting better at it the older I get. :-) I think it's fantastic that you laugh at yourself all the time. :-) I wish I didn't take life so seriously; I'm working at it though. Someday I'll get there.

    Yes. I have flaws and I am clumsy. I like laughing at myself to lighten my mood and not take myself seriously all the time.

      Good for you! I have a long way to go before I reach your level of achievement, but I'm trying really hard. I even wrote a Hub "laughing" at some of my more famous mishaps. :-) Of course, they were long in the past... it's easier to laugh later on.

    Yes! I do all the time. I think it actually makes you a better person when you can see that you mess up some times and are able to move on and use certain experiences later on in life.

    Oh yes, I am a walking comedy show. I laugh with myself constantly, sometimes even over things that happened years ago.

      Haha! A venerable talent, my friend: the ability to laugh at oneself. I have an easier time laughing at things that happened years ago, but I'm working on laughing "in the moment" at myself. :-) Cheers!

    Yes I can, I'm quite a silly person, so I have to smile

      I'm sure that you're silly only in the best of all possible ways, Stickypony. I'm quite a silly person in all ways, but I can't always laugh at myself: something I'm working on, to be sure. Thanks for commenting! Cheers!
