Gelotophobia or fear of being laughed at is understandable. This is because this is a type of social phobia. They fear being laughed because they don’t want to be ridiculed or be humiliated before other people. No one wants that to happen, having this phobia or not. However, geliophobia different. You just hear someone else laugh or see another person laughing even though it is not pointed at you will make you fall in a state of anxiety and panic.

Gelotophobia and geliophobia are phobias that arise mostly because of external traumatic events or any type of mistreatment or bullying. Maybe, the person had an actual humiliating and embarrassing experience before many people and ended up being laughed at. Or maybe, the person was constantly being laughed at because of his or her defects or other causes that is beyond his or her control.

Honestly speaking, people who suffer from these phobias are pitiful. This is because they are always haunted or reminded of their traumatic experience. They don’t deserve this suffering. Most of all, they don’t deserve to be maltreated. No one has the right to ridicule another person. And no one has the right to laugh at the expense of others.

Unfortunately, society doesn’t work this way. There are always people who bully others and people who are always bullied. GELIOPHOBIA and GELOTOPHOBIA wouldn’t have existed if our society is different.

Have Fun In Your Life

Perhaps most of you are familiar with the saying, “All work and no play makes a Jack a dull boy.” This saying means that without time off from your work or having no time for yourself to rest and play, you become either bored or become a boring person.

Have-FunThus, it is really important for you to find fun in your life. You need fun to lighten and brighten up your life. You need fun to make things look and feel positive. You need fun to make your worries go away, even for just a while. You need fun to help you avoid stress.
But the question is, what kind of fun do you need?

Now that can be difficult to answer, even to me. What’s fun for one person may not be fun to another. You see, each person is unique and the way they find excitement and enjoyment is naturally according to their tastes and preference. For instance, my definition of fun is watching movies, shows, cartoons and other various programs as well as reading books and magazines. For my brother, his definition of fun is playing basketball, going out and other outdoor activities. And for my sister, her definition of fun is partying with her friends and travelling.

Usually, the thing that you enjoy and find fun would be the one that interests you the most. If you enjoy the outdoors, then outdoor activities would be fun for you. If you love Mother Nature, then activities that lets you enjoy the wonder of nature might be a nice thing to do. If you love sports and being active, then basketball and other similar activities would suit you right. You get the gist of it already.

So if you think your life has become boring and tedious, you need to spice it up with lots of fun.
