Everyone has had those moments when things just don’t go as planned. It really can be frustrating, but it’s important to remember that your attitude is always the key here. Laughing or not at the situation is up to you but it’s always great to remember that even on your “special” days, you can still find a lot of joy and self-irony.
People with a high level of self-irony seem invulnerable to embarrassment, as they make light of different things about themselves, even if they’re negative. Psychologists say that laughing at yourself is a good sign of psychological health, intellectual ability, and maturity. Another curious fact is that people are not born with this trait — self-irony can be easily developed by practicing self-representation, looking at situations from an outside perspective, and praising yourself in any situation.
We all go through misfortunes, but only a few of us can laugh about it. If someone mocks you, you may feel compelled to get defensive and strike back. Thus, a better approach would be to display our good sense of humor to disarm the “offender.” Some daily bites of self-irony never harmed anyone, and those who chuckle at themselves can make their own lives a little easier.
A great sense of humor should be considered a superpower, from its undeniable health benefits, like improving cardiovascular health and blood pressure, to it being a stellar productivity tool. Plus, it’s worth mentioning that self-irony actually makes you much more tolerant to criticism and hate. And last but not least, any company loves people who make funny jokes.

No one is safe from awkward situations. Any of us can get caught off guard in the most unexpected places, like in the check-out line at the supermarket, on public transport, or in a fitting room. And no matter how funny it may be to tell this story to friends and family later, we often will do our best not to find ourselves in a similar situation ever again.
Every day, women tend to come across issues that men may consider far-fetched or senseless — like a visit to the hairdresser for a trim that leaves you with way less hair than you came with.

Moreover, if a woman decides to tell a joke on this topic, her humor will likely be appreciated by other females and lost on most men.
