I have just changed the way I used to laugh. I changed it because that was somehow making me seem rude even though I wasn't.
I have a silent laugh. Eyes closed by the chubby cheeks and lips crawl like, us in winter beds and the noise of happiness disappers like the moon in a night storm.
It happened a few months ago, my best friend called to share some of the recent gossips. I, being reticent, only hear things and laugh when needed. This laugh now is silent. This silence brings me mountain of troubles because first, I don't speak much and then to cover it, I laugh at the things being shared. But now what? The silent laughter can't be heard. The person feels like having a conversation with a dog is still better. Atleast he gives looks and twist and turn his tail. Today, while having a conversation with a person much elder to me, I realised I am making her feel isolated even though I was doing my business of laughing, silently. She is a total chatterbox and all I could express were laughs.
For a few moments I laughed out loud.. and then faking it even louder. She thought she is making sense and then she began to pour more of her heart out.
How else could my day have been better if not bringing smile on someone's face and leaving them with no barriers.
Maybe, this change today, has not helped me but them. Them to share a more. A bit more maybe. This might even makes me better than the dogs.
Changes are good. Changes are good untill they don't harm any feelings or emotions. Changes like these, are blessings. Blessings to have encountered a new method to be nicer.
Let's continue to be a shoulder for each set of eyes. Maybe one in a hundred need it someday.
