We’ve all experienced embarrassing moments,
whether that means tripping down the stairs,
spilling coffee on ourselves or
smiling at our crush with food
stuck in between our teeth.
There’s a misconception that
by the time you hit a certain age
and settle into adulthood.
Then you’ll have it all together.
we’ll all continue to have embarrassing moments
for as long as we live.
If making mistakes and being human is inevitable,
then how can you cope with humiliating moments.
Here are 6 effective ways to handle embarrassment.
1.Don’t beat yourself up.
Embarrassment often goes hand in hand
When you feel as though you aren’t
meeting up to your own standards,
it’s easy to fall into the trap of self-criticism.
As a result,
you may feel your next performance won’t go as well,
based on past bad experiences.
But don’t beat yourself up
over your mistakes and failures.
Instead, allow yourself to be imperfect
and see your embarrassing moments
as learning opportunities to get better.
It’s okay to mess up.
2.Focus on the non-emotional details of the moment.
According to Dr. Ekaterina Denkova,
the next time your mind decides to
replay an embarrassing moment,
try to steer your attention to the non- emotional details,
such as the color of the shirt you were wearing,
the setting or what the weather was like.
This will help you detach from the memory.
And you won’t remember it
as intensely compared to when you focus on the negativity,
which can stir up your embarrassed feelings again.
When you experience heightened emotions,
it makes it harder for you to let go and move on.
We recommend that you concentrate on
details that put you in a neutral state.
3.Laugh it off.
According to Dr. Susan Whitbourne,
a former professor of psychological and brain sciences,
the most effective way to handle embarrassment
is being able to confront it directly.
Although your first instinct might be to run away and hide,
this will only prolong your unresolved feelings of embarrassment.
That’s why it’s important to stick to the situation
until you can alleviate your stress.
Whitbourne recommends laughing it off
in order to reduce tension.
staying in a serious mood
will only influence you to hold on to the negativity.
4.See it as a great storytelling opportunity.
Have you ever shared a story
starting with the statement?
“Hey, remember that time when I did X, Y & Z?
That was so funny.”
More often than not,
it’s your embarrassing moments that
make the best stories
you can share with your friends and family.
While they’re happening, they may not be fun.
But in retrospect,
it’s easier to see how silly they are.
The best part is knowing you survived, too.
So the next time you want to die of embarrassment,
think of your top 3 embarrassing moments
remember that despite those occurrences,
you’re still here in one piece.
5.Talk it out with a close friend,
lover or family member who won’t judge you for it.
It’s difficult bottling up your emotions.
So talk about your embarrassing moment
with someone you trust.
Instead of feeling bad about the situation,
tell them what’s bothering you.
It always helps to get support
another perspective that may encourage you
to find some positivity
in the negative situation.
the person you confide in may also
share a similar embarrassing moment that happened to them.
that happened to them.
It’s always a relief to know that you’re not alone.
You might dread going back to the same place
and seeing the same people who were there when you embarrass yourself.
But be brave and face them.
If you continue to build walls in front of you,
the situation will only haunt you longer.
Others will also detect the awkwardness
you are projecting when you avoid them,
which will make it hard for them to forget about it, too.
It might not be easy when you first step in again
and go on with your normal routine.
But progress can’t be made without starting over.
Try again. You’ve got this.
