hi everyone....

ive this thing of making fun of my own flaws and i somehow think that doing that will not only make u feel lighter about the whole thing and while others laugh with u about it they will somehow not see the flaws to be a really big thing and forget about it....but on the other hand my mom feels that we shouldnt be "putting down" ourselves in front of others.....i dont think that is really justified considering that its all in the name of humor and poking fun at urself sometimes doesnt really mean putting ourselves down...

what do u guys think?

Exactly... this is something my mom says too!! Tongue

Well these 2 strategies depend on the type of gathering and the kind of PEOPLE u r sitting with. I'm pretty comfortable at making fun of myself in front of parents,sisters, nieces, nephews, close friends, understanding friends,etc. but if im in a gathering of people who have only met me once or never met me and can't understand my wavelength of wht im talking abt, then its somewht putting urself down.

My mom encourages me to make fun of myself in front of people mentioned above!. See, making fun of myself is a method of making me more "down-to-earth" (which i know some people aren't Confused ). When i laugh at myself in a lighter way and i say to my soul "Look, this is u. U have got ur flaws and mistakes .. so dont ever think urself best after an achievement!" After that i enjoy the sense of achievement + keep myself low.

Yeah, I agree with MNMS. It completely depends on what kind of gathering you're in. If its informal then the self-depreciating humour works well. But, if its more formal, then such humour may look tasteless.

I agree with you all..it depends upon gatherings and it is healthy at times to make plp feel comfy and you also get casual around them.
Also, about moms, I think.... no mom would like their kids turning down by anyone be it by themselves..so probably that protective motherly nature discourage you to make fun of yourself.
