Talking about embarrassment could be a winner for me considering how far behind I am already. It’s ok though, I know everyone will forgive me and that is enough to keep my face from turning red.
Everyone becomes embarrassed from time to time. The trick is to acknowledge it, usually out loud is best. For myself since I frequently talk to myself I have an easier time of it than most do. Often my mouth is blathering on before my brain realizes there are people around who can hear me.
The reason I tell you to acknowledge it is simple. Most embarrassment comes into play when we are worried that someone else will think less of us. Saying something along the lines of “I’m so embarrassed…” allows the people around you to lessen that fear. You’ll hear, don’t worry about it, no big deal, happens to me all the time. See it’s not so bad my blog being behind… all three of the examples above apply.
It’s much better to do this than what I used to do when I was young. I’d be angry, at me… then lash out at other people trying to make myself feel better. I see other people do this now, because I recognize it for what it is I try and talk them down a bit. Maybe they will read this and find a better way for themselves. Much better that way then how I learned.. but that’s a post for another day I think.
Want to know my mood now? See, all happy, that’s it for today though. I’ll do two a day until I catch up rather than frustrate myself with unrealistic expectations and embarrass myself. 🙂
"Whatever you do, don´t stop writing, write only for yourself if that´s what you want". It might sound as nothing, but in a time in which I doubted so much about myself, it meant the world for me.
