Causes And Ways To Overcome Feelings Of Sadness After Laughing?
Hello. So in the past year, I often feel scared when I’m laughing. And all that happens repeatedly. That is the reality. So every time I laugh, there will definitely be things that make me sad and down sooner or later. So some time lately I became more buried when I want to laugh. I’m afraid to be sad. What could happen to me? How to prevent it?
Good morning, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. The phrase don't laugh too much for fear of grieving, is actually an expression we have long heard as Indonesian people, but this expression has nothing to do with medical conditions.
Because our body does not have a laugh limit, which if the boundary is crossed, all we can feel is sadness. No matter how much or how little we laugh, we will keep laughing when there is something funny and still sad when there is something sad.
So when interpreted, the expression may mean the way people used to remind us not to overdo laughter, which is excessive in any case is clearly not good. Excessive laughter can make someone appear impure, disrespectful, and furthermore may make someone forget the potential for misfortune in life. Even though life is dynamic, sometimes we are lucky and have good fortune, and sometimes we get misfortune and loss. If we don't control ourselves when laughing or when happy, we may not be ready to face adversity and end up feeling too disappointed.
Interpretations of this expression vary, some even consider this just a mockery between young children who want to tease their friends who are laughing, but the point is this has nothing to do with human physiology. There may be psychological links, but not physiological or bodily performance.
As for this is really happening to you, where you really feel sad after laughing, this is because you are too focused on the idea. The idea that everyone who laughs will be sad is too ingrained in you to make you believe that that's what happened to you. Because you yourself say that every time you laugh, sooner or later you will go down. Even though that's the way life is, no one is always laughing and happy for the rest of their lives, sooner or later they will surely be sad, will be disappointed, will fail, will be harmed, cheated, abandoned, lied to and feel other negative experiences in different ways. This is completely normal and only a matter of perspective.
For example if you laugh very happy today, then next week you are fired. If your perspective is too focused on this expression, of course you will interpret it literally. But if you think more positively, maybe where you work is not right for you. And who knows, maybe you will get a better job, easier, closer, more comfortable environment and higher salary.
So again what we want to say, be happy whatever conditions you experience. No need to hold back because it will only make you a pessimistic person. You can imagine, even when you are clearly happy that you think bad things will happen. Even when you are happy you are pessimistic, especially in other conditions. You can be a person who is always pessimistic for the rest of your life and this will lead to stress and not good for health. Be optimistic and view everything as God's plan to glorify you. So, hopefully answering your question.
