I have’t been “truly” embarrassed since high school, and all I remember about that was falling “UP” some stairs during morning “rush”! LOL! Yea, I’m sure that wasn’t the only thing that hurt my rep back then!
I was never, what you'd call, popular! I have had PLENTY of embarrassing moments in my youth! From telling the wrong people about my crushes, and having them reveal them at the most inopportune times! ... is ANY time, opportune, for your crush to find out about your feelings...then CRUSH those feelings!?!? SMH!
To being called out about my "lazy" eye, back when I didn't have the confidence to ignore it or "return the favor"! And even down to the times I was "beat up" by elementary school bullies ... including a girl, and also a guy that was a lot smaller than me! Hey, I was non-confrontational! And then there was good old embarrassing moments at home... like the times I'd get whoopin's in front of my sister or cousins, for doing something stupid! SMDH!
Anyway, through it all, I have gotten through these moments ... or years... without much pride lost, but being a lot stronger because of it! I gained confidence from being able to overcome and minimize! I have also learned, there's nothing else ... well, not much else... life can't throw at me, that will leave me embarrassed or mortified! I've been through a lot, and I know, there's much bigger fish to fry in this thing we call life!
