What is your first reaction when you fell down at different stage of life?

In every different stage of our lives, I think we are always changing, in terms of reaction and response. When I was a kid, when I fell down, the first time I did was to cry and I remembered that I feel nothing but pain and shock. But during school days, around the age of 10 or 11, when both my friend and I fell down at the playground (sandy area), I did not cried. Because I heard my friend cried, I stood up and went over to look at her and brought us both to the teacher's room for medication. And that's when I remembered I teared. My feeling then, was totally a blank mind. And when I started working, I had a bad fall that landed my kneecap right on the staircase edge. All my colleagues panicked but I just picked myself up, folded my pants and looked at how "dented" my kneecap was. And it started to hurt 10 minutes after the whole incident had happened. My feeling back then, was less of pain but more on embarrassment because it happened in the eye of so many people. What is your first reaction when you fell down at different stage of life? And what do you remembered?

I'm not sure why, but to me falling is one of the funniest things in the world so whenever I fall or if one of my friends falls, after seeing that they're okay I pretty much lose it and laugh hysterically. I'm not sure why I find it so funny. I just always have.

Hi, thanks for sharing. Yes, I find it sometimes amusing only if the person who fell is not in any serious injury. Cheers

Hi there, I guess most of us will have a blank mind before anything else occurs. And yes, you are right, I get angry at myself for falling at time too. That's why I always tried to look for any possible obstacles that might caused me to fall and avoid it with caution. But well, what's an accident called if it's something we can avoid.
