Laughter no more?
It’s been a long and rough day… A comment made by my colleague today really struck me. I happened to meet her in the office and she said ‘Hey, it seems like I haven’t seen you for a long time. And I no longer hear your laughter from my seat. Have you been very busy?”
I had no reply to her question. I just smiled and shrugged it off, saying “Yah, been very busy.” But after that, her comment kept me thinking. The first statement was bad. To think that both of us are in the same office and she said she hasn’t seen me for a long time. The second statement was worse. She no longer hears my laughter. For those who have known me long enough, I am a jovial person. I am often cheerful and smiling. When I don’t smile or keep quiet, it’s either because I’m sleeping or something is wrong. If I dun smile at you, you probably have made me very angry and good luck to you. But not to worry, I don’t bear grudges. =) Back to my topic. As I was driving home, I was thinking of this first month of this year. Indeed I’ve not been happy, in fact, I’ve been very sad. And sadly, I know it’s work-related, because work really hasn’t been smooth. Perhaps coupled with the fact that I really miss my dad very badly.
I’ve been really trying to brush this aside, but time and again, it would creep back again. Is this a passing phase? I really hope so…
