Hi, Hey, Hello!
I tend to find that whenever I am feeling really low I actually find it almost impossible to find joy in anything. It’s just one of those things that doesn’t even cross my mind to attempt to even try to laugh.
And it’s in those moments where I feel that shitty that I basically try and force myself to watch something that I know will make me laugh. Which sounds a little bit counter productive because the use of the word ‘force’ but I just basically need to do something that will make me laugh.
Sometimes it’s something that I’ve already seen and I know will make laugh. Sometimes it’s something new that I don’t know how I will react to. But it’s that very fact that means that I have to pay attention and engage in it. It means that I have to disconnect from whatever the hell is going in my head and get lost in the world that I have chosen to get involved in.
That in turn means that whether I mean to or not I am engaging with something else and if I’ve picked correctly then I will find myself laughing. Or cringing. Or getting way too into the show.
Jut having that level of disconnect from something means that I’m out of my own head and then I just feel a lot better.
Laughter really is the best medicine a lot of the time, but somehow it also feels like the hardest because if you’re faking it then it just feels sad.
So thank you Netflix for being a great source of laughter when I need it most.
