Do you ever feel embarrassed about something that happened a long time ago??

I get that way sometimes. I'm a junior in high school, and every now and then, I think back to the time I was in 9th grade, and I had a poptart that I had sat upon, stuck to my rear, and no one told me until the very end of the day. So from 8:00 to 3:09, I had a poptart on my bottom. Not a SOUL would tell me! And now, every time I think about it, I think to myself "maybe they've forgotten by now" or "omg... that sucked" lol but... usually the embarrassment from days before come back to haunt me not just in what I did, but of what I said, too! Once, we were all picking on my friend, this was in 8th grade, and a friend of mine whas pretending to be pregnant. We all joked around calling him (name is changed) Jason Marie McDuff. Of course his middle name wasn't Marie, but he laughed with us. And since we called him a woman basically all day, I came out and said "Awww Jason Marie! Did you have the FIRST baby yet?" And people stared at me... Then I realized what I said, and my teacher was standing only a few feet away from me. I was completely mortified, the teacher thought I was asking about Jason's virginity!! Then to this very day I feel like a dum-dum, and wonder if anyone remembers that at all!

LOL! this is so funny. i am sure when you remember this situation you laugh at yourself. saying how dumb i am at those time. regarding your question, i dont feel embarrassed if i remember silly things i have done when i was a small kid. its part of growing up and getting old. sometimes i just laugh at it. although when it was a part of discussion with group of friends i feel shy because everybody is laughing. i have moved on being embarrassed with those situations. thank you for sharing

Not necessarily embarrassed, but just rather baffled about what I could be thinking at the time. Of course the right answer would be absolutely nothing. To be a teenager, there were a lot of things that came out of my mouth. Especially in the heat of discussion, where I thought about it, when my brain finally engaged a couple of years and I'm like, "tell me, I did not just say that." So yeah that is just really a part of life. I sometimes get a bit of a shudder. There are a lot of times where I think back to what happened a long time ago and I just wonder why I would do something like that. It is just a really intriguing to think about it. It is fine when it is an inside joke between friends but when someone on the outside overhears it, they're not going to know the entire story, so yeah.

My life has been adventurous, in other words embarrassing. There would have been a thousand embarrassing situations with me as the protagonist. But the good thing is that i can't remember even a single one of them. My dad always got transfered from one place to another. Because of all these internet social communities i got in touch with many of my old friends from different cities. Every now and then they come up with something like "Do u remember when you were in the sports club, You bumped into a girl while running. She complained and you were punished in front of whole sports club. It was so embarrasing for You". And then i am like "hell no. when did that happened to me".

All the time. And the hardest part, I can never forget it. I'm afraid to know if anyone still remembers what happened.

hi bloo! yep! the most embarassing moment in my life may not have been public, but i had been embarassed with what i did and the choices i made. if i could turn back time, i would not have made the choice to do it. anyway, it was a blind date that had gone well at the start and i put my hopes up, only to get my heart broken in the end. it was a bad time, not to mention the bad things we did. so i felt used. anyway, i have put it behind me now, i am happily married to a very loving and supportive husband. but still, if i can change the past, i would undo this experience. take care and God bless you! happy mylotting! :d
