Why do we laugh less as we get older ?

edited November 2018 in The cake stop
I remember as a kid I loved nothing more than a good laugh - it got me in endless trouble at school - but I wouldn't change a thing.
Now watching my my own kids in their late teens early 20's - I recall then giggling at bath time, meal time, it seemed they couldn't stop laughing ?

So where does all the laughter go ? - do the responsibility of house/cars/work/relationships squeeze that laughter out of us ?

    Ditto.
    I like the word ditto. It doesn’t make me laugh, but it does make me smile.
    The above may be fact, or fiction, I may be serious, I may be jesting.
    I am not sure. You have no chance.

    not round these parts - still giggling and laughing the vast majority of the day, the remaining spent sleeping.

    perhaps you need a change from your current situation or to stop taking things so seriously. you seem to come across in your posts as overly serious.

    It was more a general observation than a problem to solve.

    I think I laugh more and at things that are just as daft as when I was younger, both with my family and when out with my mates. All to do with the situation you're in and the pressure you're under, if you've got this under control, no reason to laugh less. If you're laughing less somethings not quiet right, whether it's changeable is another matter.
    All lies and jest..still a man hears what he wants to hear and disregards the rest....

    You've seen it all before.

    This pretty much, it's the natural reaction to something often unexpected so the more you've seen / heard the less creates that 'shock' type response.

    well don't live a boring life and get yourself into circumstances that give you new unexpected opportunities to laugh and experience new things.

    remember - a life lived in fear is a life half lived
