i've mentioned before that anytime i fall, i laugh hysterically...especially when i realize that it's a "good fall" - no injuries, pain etc, jes a plain ole fall. Is that normal? is it smart? maybe not, but it is what it is and that's how i react. not sure if it's because i haven't been in a completely embarrassing situation or what but it only occurred to me on Saturday nite that other people may not find the humour.
lil mad that it happened "on his watch" - he wasn't laughing! i tried to tell him that it was okay - no worries; Lord knows that i fall all the time and am used to it, but he wasn't hearing it. The same thing happened a few weeks ago with another friend who was helping me with something...i kept falling and she kept saying, "she keeps laughing, but i really am trying to help." I knew she was, but i probably wasn't helping the situation by laughing like a jackass all the time.
- Maybe deep down inside, i'm actually embarrassed and just need to deal with it so i do so by laughing? who knows...
Maybe i need to rethink my reaction because it's not always as funny to everyone else as it is to me...not making any promises on that right now, but it is something that i think i need to think about/be aware of. I'm not going thru this alone, so i do have to take other people's feelings into consideration.
