I have a Problem
So I think I have a problem and I’m here to find out if it happens to just me or there are people out here who have had the same issue.
The problem isn’t really a big one and shouldn’t be exaggerated but it happens to be something that has put me in trouble a couple of times and if you’re wondering what it is, it’s simple..
I laugh during serious situations or conversations even though there is nothing funny to make me laugh.
It used to be a cute thing for me back in the days but now it has turned to a nightmare and the worse thing is the harder I try to hold it back, the harder it gets not to laugh.
I remember one time where my dad had to do a quick factory reset for me because of this same thing. We all were praying in the living room, everyone’s eyes were closed except mine. I was looking at the faces of each and everyone of them and then all of a sudden I started laughing. It was a silent laughter and I was trying to quickly get it out of my system before they all opened their eyes to hear the next prayer point when my dad opened his eyes few seconds earlier than he should have and I was the first person he looked at.
That man had pulled out his cane like King Arthur of Camelot and had descended on me like I was an evil spirit. And I said evil spirit because that was what he said. He said he was going to cast away that evil spirit of laughter in me and with every stroke of the cane, came a loud amen from me.
My brothers had ended up laughing their asses out after the prayer was over.
Another instance where I laughed when I wasn’t suppose to was recently when I was acting like a therapist to my friend and his girlfriend. They both were having issues and somehow I had found myself in the middle of the whole thing and had to help them resolve it.
When the argument between the two of them was starting to heat up, I just started laughing unnecessarily, luckily for me the room was dark and it was a silent laughter. Imagine how annoying it will be when you’re explaining your problem to your therapists and he or she just starts laughing.
I escaped that one but I feel like I might not be so lucky in the future in a very serious situation and might really get in trouble. Is there a remedy to this?
