Self-serious people

Learnt a new word from a FB friend’s update yesterday – ‘Self-serious’. The word reminds me of 2 pieces of advice about life I read in a book the other day.
– Don’t judge others too harshly.
– Don’t take yourself too seriously.
Most of the time, we have an inflated ego. We think we’re the cleverest, most perceptive, most ‘correct’ person in the world, so we sneer at people who think or act differently.
It’s OK to have our own thoughts and stance but much of our unhappiness stems from our taking ourselves too seriously. Happy people are those who can laugh at themselves – and for that, I’m easily drawn to them.
