Facing fears, admitting anger and rage, acknowledging the worry, and containing the panic – none of these tasks you face are easy. When so much of your time and thoughts are centered on seriousness, it’s imperative to give yourself a break. Then you can be refreshed to take the next step. Humor can be a great antidote.
