Sometimes I feel that it has been years since I have really had real true laugh. I don't think everytime we are laughing means we are happy.......what do you think about this.

Well, sometimes I feel that way as well, and maybe that is because when we do laugh they are too far between each other to keep real count and maybe we should be laughing more. I love to laugh and I try and have a good laugh at least once a day although it is not always working that way. Oh well, just enjoy your laughs when you have them... You need to be with other people that love to laugh though otherwise it is really not going to work too well.

I can't laugh when am sad. I can't cry when am happy. people nowadays find it so EASY to decieve. But i dont. I just can't. I try to be HONEST as much as i can. So to answer your question, no ma'am i haven't laughed in years... :(

nor have I friend, haven't laughed for years. I am searching for that innocent sincere happiness which has become a history , just memories of childhood.....What has happened to us....Why has it become so difficult to laugh.......

it is very difficult for me to hide my emotions, whether it is happiness or sadness..... hence i mean happiness whenever i am laughing.

i think it depends on different people,some people are out-going,they laugh a lot and don't hide their feelings,i think when they are laughing,they are really happy,but for someone who is shy and quiet,they don't laugh a lot even they are really happy. of couse,there are many types of laugh,and not all laughs mean happy,sometimes you can't tell if they are really happy,or pretend to be. i like laughs from inner heart,true laugh.

laugh - I laugh only when I am happy
I think laugh is an expression of happiness. I can't laugh when I am sad/worried. I laugh only when I am happy. It can be a word, a scene, a gesture or anything funny which makes me happy and turn laughter. It is said that laughter occurs when people are comfortable with one another, when they feel open and free.

yes i agree, when we are confortable with someone we feel happy and then we can laugh.but there are cases when we are just laughing because all are laughing.......

you are so very right apsara!! when we laugh, we kind of laugh at some funny thing and this stays momentarily. after sometime we forget and we stop laughing. HAPPINESS is used in broader perspective and denotes a general state of mind. generally happy means when we are in a happy state over a long period of time. i just hope this makes sense....

of course it makes sense.....happiness is connected to our state of mind. When we really have no worries or any burden on our shoulders , when we can really sit behind and relax, things look more pleasant to us and then even simple things make us smile and we are happy. We can say laughing is outer joy while happiness is internal satisfaction.

I think that people don't always laugh because they are happy and sometimes laugh because of nerves or to simply feel part of the crowd, sometimes someone will tell a joke and everyone else is laughing and you will feel that you need to laugh so as not to offend ect. I think haviga good laugh is greta for you adn apparently laughing adn smiling burns calories and releases endorphins which eventually amke you happy anyway so maybe it's not such a bad thing to throw back our heads adn laugh even when we don't really feel like it.
