the world needs laughter

When I’m quiet, I’m afraid people think that I feel uncomfortable or upset, but I genuinely enjoy being able to sit in someone’s presence without needing to rely on words. Communication is a precious thing, don’t get me wrong. There’s just something so personal and intimate in sharing silence as well.

Let me say something while I’m being late night introspective at the moment, things are very scary right now and there’s times where I feel like the only thing I can do is try to make people laugh. Sometimes it feels like what I do is rather frivolous compared to everything happening now, but then I get a message from someone thanking me for helping them feel just a little bit better. And I want to say thank you to them and to you all, because that just reaffirms that the world needs laughter and makes me want to do better for you guys.

You’re all important, you all matter, and whoever’s reading, I’m glad you’re here.

The world needs laughter.

“If we’re destroying our trees and destroying our environment and hurting animals and hurting one another and all that stuff, there’s got to be a very powerful energy to fight that. I think we need more love in the world. We need more kindness, more compassion, more joy, more laughter. I definitely want to contribute to that.”

- Ellen DeGeneres
