How many times in a day could you laugh at the same joke again?
But after a point, you stop laughing.
You know the twist. You know the punch. You are aware of the story.
And there’s nothing new that could surprise you.
Here is another question for you.
How many times in a day could you get upset at the same situation again?
If you don’t laugh at the same joke again, how is it that you complain about the same situation again?
That you cry over the same issue again?
That you feel hurt about the same thing again?
Once you trick the mind into believing that your life is a “joke”, you will stop reacting to stories long after it’s over.
