When it gets really bad, they finally start laughing…
I know someone in divorce hell right now. And I have learned that when he’s especially jovial, I mean really jovial, things are at their worst. I used to ask what’s going on that he’s so happy. The answer threw me off at first. He would then get very serious and recount the latest version of court drama he’d just been through over custody issues. When he’s the exceptional clown, things are so bad he’s just got to laugh. Laughter is his antidote.
For some people this is what it takes to laugh. Situations that need the medicine of laughter.
