I basically feel tortured psychologically over every silly little embarrassing thing I've done. I don't show my embarrassment outside, of course, but it's really killing me inside. =X How do I get over the embarrassment?

haha, yeah, I know what u mean...

sometimes, it takes me a whole week to get over it...

what I usually do is just laugh at the situation, and tell my friends about it, so I can lift up that burden I feel inside me, and so that they could laugh with me as well. that way, I am reminded that it's something I shouldn't be taken seriously...

and keep in mind that someone could have gone through a worse situation...

Let it off and laugh about it. The first thing you should do if you are embarrassed in front of other people is to indicate to others that it was a joke. State to others that it never occurred to you that you are tormented over it. Just laugh loudly and say "That's funny!". People will acknowledge that you didn't take it seriously and they will definitely stop doing it because you didn't respond the way they want you to -- they want you to suffer. But at least you manage to act not to suffer. meant to hurt you. Now, this really depends on what you're embarrassed about.

Think about your problem carefully. When you go back to your comfort zone -- your room -- just take a moment to think how did that indent happened. Are you always careless? Consider ways on how to correct the problem.

Improvise your personality. Be more aware of what's happening around you, if you are always careless.

People have dealt with embarrassment before, and so you will be able to handle it, too, as long as you have faith in yourself and can understand how to deal with your embarrassment.

Don't be embarrassed over trivial things. Things that seem oh-so-important now; oh no, that girl has the same top as you; will be totally forgotten when you're older.

Try not to yell at people for no reason, for they may think you are crazy and you might become embarrassed.

Embarrassment can cause a person to blush! This may ruin your "don't care" look. Take a deep breath, and try to cool down - and you can check out some of the Related wikiHow articles for more help on blushing.

If you say things that are really mean, you could get hurt and become embarrassed. That is when you make your own decisions.

Do not continue to ignore people when they have stopped teasing you, so that you do not become embarrassed from ignoring the person for no reason.

The most important thing is to talk to other people and you will find out that the majority of the population have done the same things. I have learned over the years that pretty much everything that we have done and experienced others have too, and we are all people who make mistakes and do stupid things. Once you realize that everyone else is the same you won't be so embarrassed because why would anyone make fun of you or ridicule you for something they have done. If they do they have issues; not you.

lol!! Great joke! I am sure I heard that in a film, there was a black couple running a shop and they did that routine, with the woman serving at the counter and the man shouting across the shop... but I can't remember what the film was.

Stop doing things you're ashamed of.  That way, even if it's a mistake, you can fall back on the reasoning that "it seemed like a good idea at the time and there was no way I could have known better without access to time travel."
