    Laughter

    When people make jokes about me, i try to laugh it off to show it doesn't bother me. when really in the inside it hurts alot and i am getting mad. I don't want to show people they are hurting me so i need to laugh it off.

    Everyday....

    everyday i laugh to hide the pain, weather it be physicall pain, or emotional pain, there is usually some kind of pain there, and i very rarely will show it in real life, I just laugh to hide the fact that I am hurting.
