There are people who joke about everything. They may be going through a hard time but you find them joking about it. People assume that they are doing ok if they are busy making fun of their circumstances. However that might not be true. This person may use jokes to avoid facing some realities in their life. If you are friends with such a person, you need to find out what is wrong. Do not assume that they will talk when they are ready to. They may never be ready to talk unless prompted by someone.
Many comedians are known to be always happy and cracking jokes, so much so that people think they have nothing stressing them. Some however have ended up on drugs because they cannot cope with their reality. Not knowing how to reconcile the reality they live in and the fantasy they so often travel to causes actors and musicians to enter into a world of perpetual high – drugs. In most cases unless help arrives on time, it does not end well.
Having a small circle of friends whom you can confide in helps to get through those difficult times. If you don’t have a friend to talk to, seek professional help. At times, it’s best to talk to someone who does not know you. They have no prior knowledge about you thus they cannot be biased.
