Feeling Powerless to Change your Situation? Try Poking Fun at your Frustrations

Why do we joke and laugh about sensitive topics that hit a nerve?Experience teaches us that when we feel powerless to influence or change a situation, poking fun at it helps us to rise above our circumstances and feel superior to our troubles.  

What causes your pain? Is it the high cost of gasoline, setbacks caused by learning a new computer system, enormous workloads, inadequate budgets, feeling unappreciated or unnoticed, health issues, or balancing home and work, to name a few?

Try poking fun at your frustrations with playful sarcasm, and take some of the sting out of your pain.
