19 People Who Were Faced With a Harsh Reality and Took It Like a Champ

There are times when reality is harsh. We have all had days, if not weeks, that didn’t go according to plan. The key is figuring out how we will react. Many complain, while others choose to laugh in the face of adversity. As psychologists believe, a person who can laugh at themselves is more likely to have a positive personality, be in a cheerful mood, and have a good sense of humor.

We present to you Bright Side’s collection of snapshots of people who live by the motto that laughter is the best medicine.
