Do you feel uncomfortable when you see someone else being embarrassed? What’s most likely to make you squirm?
Ofcourse. Who likes to see other people in embarrassing situations where they are going through something that could potential shame them or make them feel like they just want to find a hole in the wall and crawl in there hidden from the rest of the world. It’s called being empathetic and a I, like most people, am empathetic for the most part. I do not think most of you would like to see someone go through a really embarrassing situation because we wouldn’t want ourselves to be in the same situation and would want to avoid seeing someone in that situation and try to help him avoid that situation if we could.That goes the same for me.
Now ofcourse there are some situations we can’t avoid no matter what we do and we just have to bear it. The same happens when it comes to someone else being embarrassed; you have to steel your nerves, think of something else and wait until it ends. The only thing you can do in those situations is to help and console the person who was embarrassed or cheer them up by changing the subject to something much more pleasant and happy. These are somethings that we can do as human beings helping other human beings.
