Who's Laughing Now?

Growing up, I experienced shame and embarrassment that left lasting imprints on my self-esteem. I struggled to find humor in myself because of the fear of being laughed at or judged by others. The mere thought of laughing at my mistakes or quirks would resurrect those old shameful feelings, reinforcing my insecurities.

The path to being able to laugh at me was a challenging one. It required admitting that I had invented the concept of feeling blemished or unacceptable. I had to challenge this negative narrative I had internalized and redefine my perception of self-worth. Gradually, I realized that the ability to laugh at myself was not a sign of weakness but a demonstration of resilience and self-acceptance.

A considerable shift for me came when I accepted and believed that God made me more than enough.

I was equipped to be the man He made me to be. As I let go of the weight of shame, I found that laughter became a liberating force. It enabled me to accept and embrace my humanity, flaws, and all. Instead of dwelling on my mistakes or moments of awkwardness, I began to see them as opportunities for growth and valuable life lessons. Laughter became a tool to diffuse tension, build connections, and foster a lightheartedness that made life more enjoyable.

The ability to laugh at myself has provided me with a sense of freedom and fun in my life. It has allowed me to approach challenges with a lighter perspective and a willingness to take risks. I've discovered that when I find humor in my missteps, I am less fearful of judgment from others.

Laughing at myself has become an act of self-empowerment, reminding me that I am more than my mistakes and that vulnerability can be a source of strength.

How about you? Did God make you enough or even more than enough?
