Have you ever eaten your words?

If so, how did it feel? To me, it's horrible. Embarrassing.. When you utter a lot of this and that and later on - it's you who's doing it all because you realized that you want to do it. There's this case during my high school years when I told my friends that being in a relationship will only spoil the fun. And being in a relationship is corny and all that.. But when I found someone that I like - I desperately want to be with that person. But then I can't tell my friends that I liked somebody because I'm afraid they'll laugh at me.. I felt kind of embarrassed to tell them because I've eaten my words. I kind of wish to be with someone - have a relationship with someone.. Ha. There's also this case when I told my friends that drinking coffee is ridiculous and is just for adults. But then there's this term paper in english which I had to deal with overnight.. I didn't have a choice because I felt really sleepy.. And so I drank coffee.. Well, these are just minor cases.. This one's really embarrassing. I told my friends that I don't really care about wearing a backpack in college because I'm not the type who goes with the flow - and that I'm confident with a backpack. And my friends told their friends about what I said. So they said "oh... really.. we'll see about that.." Then later on, during my first year in college, people kept on giggling when I pass by because of my backpack. I didn't mind them at first. But then whenever I pass by my crush, he raises an eyebrow at me then at my backpack - then I started to feel all conscious.. I practically screamed at my friends to help me buy a shoulder bag to make me look lady-like like how my friends look. They laughed at me but still helped me find a nice shoulder bag.. But then when I wore my shoulder bag in college.. Whoa... people who knew me giggled even harder because I totally ate my words.. They went all "ooooh.. look who's wearing a shoulder bag, eh?" Ha. I remembered those few days when I had to endure a lot of teasing.. Sigh.. I never should really make a lot of side comments about stuff and matters which I'm not interested for the time being because in time, I might change my mind about them. Then get scorned at. What about you? Mind if you share some experiences? Thanks!
