hello mylotters! what do you usually do when you get embarrassed? lets say in a meeting, if something funny occurs on you like for an example you still have some noticable food debris in your two front teeth while talking to everyone in the meeting and just noticed it after the meeting, what do you do? or for an example you saw your crush or something like that and then you slipped. would you still stand up and stay confident or you lose your poise or just freaking run away? i would like to hear your opinions, and share your experiences. me usually when i get embarrassed, i get paranoid or something like that and then i just dont wanna do things anymore, thats how i feel if i get embarrassed. so how about you?

Me, I just laughed it off, it's already done and there's nothing I can do except to be a "sport". Anyway, all of us have their own share of embarrassing moments right? ^_^

yupp! sometimes i just laugh about it, but i just keep thinking about it before i sleep! im paranoid about it or something. it usually takes me about two days, depending on the person, if i dont care about that person i dont mind getting embarrassed, but if i see a beautiful girl and for example i slipped, damn i get paranoid!

I'm guessing that you're still young? Because I was like that when I was young, I laughed about it and when it's time to sleep, the embarrassing moment kept on disturbing my thoughts. But when I think about it now, it seemed back then, others had already forgot about the incident except me. ^_^

Find a quiet spot and think about the embarrassment. Weird but true.

I use to really let it get to me when I got embarrassed. I would get angry, and upset. But then I figured out that it doesn't help anything, and can often just make things more embarrassing for you. Most of the time things that embarrass us ,are only noticed by ourselves. You might think everyone is looking at you, but they're probably not. People are busy, they're worried about themselves. They're not watching your every move. So if you slip up they're probably not going to notice it. And if they do, would you really want to make it worse by causing a scene. When I get embarrased now I just try to play it off like nothing happened. I just keep on going, and don't look back.

when i get embarrassed, my face will turn red so i quickly hide my face like turn around or move my head down for a few seconds to make my face normal again~

when i am embarrassed i stick to my awkward smile and just stay quite and laugh a Lil at whatever happened...but inside im just like ahhhhhhh...ha...but you shouldn't let being embarrassed stop you from your surroundings, do something. :) have a really good day and happy mylotting :)

Whenever i got embarrassed, i just shut myself up. No calls. No talks. Passsing somw time with own self.. It is good to be alone rather than thinking what happened.

I usually just laugh whenever something embarrassing happens to me. I don't really get embarrassed very easily, so most of the time I just find humor in it, but if I actually do get embarrassed, I'll typically just laugh anyway. That's what I tend to do whenever I'm nervous. If I get dreadfully embarrassed and my feelings were hurt or it made me feel bad, I'd probably just leave if possible or else I'd just get real quiet. But that's not fun, so it's best to try to laugh it off.

Getting embrassed starts in our minds. If you start to think you're embarrased after a certain event then you'll definitely produce reactions that you're in fact embarrased. If you think you're still good and doing things smoothly, you won't get embarrased.

Whenever I've done something embarrassing of course I'll feel ashamed and shy to other people around me who saw it. But we are not born to be perfect so what can we do after such embarrassing moment? Let's just stand up and continue doing things that we're doing and just give those people a beautiful smile. :) I'm sure once you give them your beautiful smile, they will smile to you as well and just forget about that embarrassing moment. Forget about those embarrassing moments, after all, we are not born to be perfect it is our human nature to be clumsy at times.
