Learn to laugh at yourself - You grow up the day you have your first real laugh at yourself. — Ethel Barrymore

Learn to laugh at yourself – it’s a sign of maturity!

I found a fun quote from Ethel Barrymore, a great-great aunt of Drew Barrymore. She was an actor from 1895 to 1957 and part of a family who made their life on the stage. She said,

“You grow up the day you have your first real laugh at yourself.”

~ Ethel Barrymore

When did you first learn to laugh at yourself?

I’m guessing that learning to laugh at yourself isn’t a one-time event. I think we grow into the ability.

Eventually, we all learn that nobody is really looking at us, even if we think they are. And that we’re not all that important, and the actions we take (on the whole) may or may not be wise and won’t usually make everyone happy or unhappy.

None of us are that important or famous that we shouldn’t be able to see our faults or mistakes and laugh along with others. No one is perfect. Not even us!

What makes you most often laugh about yourself?
