Have you ever asked yourself the question, “What if I’m not funny?” The truth of the matter is that you have used humor if you have ever made someone laugh. Sharing humorous photographs, videos, and memes as a gift of humor also means you made someone laugh, and you don’t have to worry about being funny. The reality is that humor is a skill, which means that it can be acquired. This article will provide you with tips that will help you develop your skill of humor.

Learn To Share Your Point Of View
Everyone has a different way of seeing the world because we all see the world from different perspectives. We can take advantage of those perspectives by connecting with people. For instance, you can make a point from your perspective without worrying about what people will say about it. It would be best to make sure that the statements you make are not inappropriate.
Explore And Heighten
In the quest to explore and heighten your skill of humor, you need to ask yourself the question, “If this is true, then what else can be true?” For example, American rapper Tramar Lacel Dillard — better known by his stage name “Flo Rida” — came up with his stage name by putting a space in Florida, which became Flo rida. That’s creative, right? You can also discover new ideas that will help you better your humor skills as you explore.
Practice, Perform, Repeat
Practice, perform and repeat are the keys to commitment in developing the skill of humor. They help build your confidence, and continuing to do this will help you become comfortable using humor more. To begin with, you can rehearse in front of a few friends, which will make you a little more comfortable with the funny ideas in your head.
“You must be the person you have never had the courage to be. Gradually, you will discover that you are that person, but until you can see this clearly, you must pretend and invent.”Paulo Coelho.
For you not to get discouraged on your path to developing the skill of humor, always keep in mind not to dwell on jokes that no one laughs at to avoid awkwardness. No one has ever been fired for a bad joke but make sure not to make inappropriate ones especially at work. As long as you’re getting work done at work and making good use of the skill of humor, your boss will be happy. There is a lot of tension in the world, and you can make a difference by using your skill of humor. Remember, whatever you do always give 100 percent (unless you are donating blood). Take a leap of faith and be the positive difference.
