We’ve all seen our boyfriends, friends, or family with their friends and maybe even noticed a slight change. Whether it's the way they talk or act generally or towards you, there's something different in their attitude. While we think we understand true friendships, we have no idea what goes on between a person and their buddies, so our only option is to grin and bear when they're around. But when embarrassment is a factor, we have to take a different route. And GL is here to help you through a super embarrassing moment in front of the closets people in your life.
Take deep breaths
After the embarrassment sinks in, take some deep breaths to
calm yourself down. This can help you avoid saying or doing anything else that
could possibly add to the embarrassment. Give yourself a minute to calm down
and then carry on.
Laugh, laugh, laugh
Trust us, laughing it off won't make you look ridiculous.
One of the easiest ways to get over your embarrassment is to just laugh at
yourself. That way, everyone else is laughing with you and not at you. Just be
sure you laugh your head off at the right time.
When you get embarrassed, it's best just to accept it. You
can't go back in time, so what's the point in being in total denial? Just
accept it in that moment so you can move on. But if you feel that it was super
inappropriate then wait until you and the person who embarrassed you leave
wherever you are and address it.
Don't make a scene
The absolute worse thing to do that will add to your
embarrassment is to make a huge scene about it. When you get embarrassed don't
get defensive. Although emotions may feel like they’re kicking in to overdrive,
don't scream, shout, run away, or flat-out cry in front of anyone. The bigger
scene you make, the more it'll stick with them. If you react mildly or not at
all, they'll forget anything ever happened.
Finally, move on. In life, you will always get embarrassed
in some way, shape, or form. Especially if the embarrass-er feels comfortable
with you. So, if you get embarrassed in front of your friends, boyfriend, or
family, they really like you!
