Are you easily embarrassed? Why do you think this is?
- Not really, depends on the situation but I am the type to usually make a fool of myself for someone’s entertainment (make them laugh) or to make light of myself to block out the embarrassment I would normally feel, or lighten the mood/situation. However, as parents normally do, my mom enjoys embarrassing me and so she is an exception. I think the reason I am embarrassed by my mom’s actions when in public — when she is being silly or in a confrontation is just because she is my mom & it is hard to explain her actions because I know she is being herself and I shouldn’t care what others think if she doesn’t, but it is hard because I feel the eyes of others judging and wish they wouldn’t. When I embarrass myself, it is usually my way of covering up my anxiety– a friendly reminder to let myself know, “everything is okay”
