Everyone faces some or the other type of embarrassment in their lives. While some are easy to digest, some that hit your mind hard every time.
When you are idle and not doing any work, you may be reminded of it. If you happened to meet the person who was in the situation when you felt embarrassed, you would get the same feeling again.
I also have experienced these sorts of embarrassing moments.
Actually, embarrassing moments could be easily recalled, it may even bring a smile on your face at times.
We wouldn’t expect ourselves to be part of embarrassing situations. When we are put under such situations, we really don’t know how to find a way out.
Though there are many embarrassing moments in my life I could only share a few of them below.
My first most embarrassing moment was when I was 10 years old, one day I was playing with my friends and I had an urge to attend to nature’s call. I steadily ignored my body’s warning signs.
I continued playing with my friends. In the meantime, everyone gathered in a group near a motor cycle (bike). On the pillion seat of the bike there is a provision of a tucked net.
It is generally used for holding some stuff. I started playing with it pretending to be holding it ,stretching it, etc. All of a sudden, the owner of bike came from nowhere.
All my friends started running and I was standing there all alone. He held my hands tightly and started scolding me for what I was doing with his bike.
He started blaming me for playing with his possession. He inquired why I was scratching his bike’s seat with my nail. As I was playing with the net, I clarified my stand.
Surely enough, I was unable to speak anything more to save myself. I got scared and then I peed then and there. All were looking at me.
The uncle released my hand and I ran towards my house crying loudly. My grandmother asked me worriedly.
I answered her that I fell into a puddle of muddy water. I asked her to give me clothes to change. That night was very hard indeed!
This experience may create a laughing sensation with readers. To me, it was very shameful, given I was a ten year old girl at that time!
The second experience was when I was in my high school. I was a student of biology. Everyone at class used to call me a doctor. This was quite a good thing for me.
It made me happy that everyone was calling me a doctor. One fine day I was getting down the stairs from my biology class. Normally, I used to jump on the stairs routinely.
On that day too, I repeated the same act. Some of the well known boys of our school were standing there. As I jumped, I lost my control and got smashed on the floor.
I fell down from 5th stair and hit the ground floor. Everyone out there just started laughing at me. Some came to help me.
To avoid any further embarrassment, I too started laughing. Later when I came home, I felt so humiliated that I didn’t attend school for 2 days.
The third experience was due to my overconfidence. I unnecessarily caught everyone’s attention for all the wrong reasons.
Last year my uncle bought me a new bike – Activa (Scooty). After taking riding lessons, I was very excited to ride my scooty. When my students left for home, I took the keys and went down to start the bike.
Half way through, I saw one of my students standing. I began flaunting my new scooty. He greeted me and soon after that, I lost control over my scooty. Instead of applying brakes, I accelerated it and got hit with a washer man.
By god’s grace I just hit his chair and not him. There was no big loss to him. My scooty got damaged and I got hurt badly. That day, I got embarrassed in front of my students.
My fourth embarrassing experience till date is a very sad moment. Our 11th class had just begun. I had also joined a coaching centre.
I had a lot of friends there too! One fine day, a guy approached me seeking good friendship with me. I smartly agreed.
Slowly we started talking. We chatted for long hours over phone, late night chats became common. At the coaching class too, our talks grew and I totally fell for him.
One day I proposed to him. In response, he said he needs some time to think over. He assured to maintain confidentiality of the matter.
I trusted him blindly. To my fate, the next day when I arrived at the institute, all his friends were smiling at me fishily. I tried to ignore them. After a few days I was in for a bigger shock.
I saw one of my friends holding his hands and learnt that they were actually in a relationship, I felt so unwanted and upset. I called him. I pleaded with him for keeping me in darkness.
Without speaking any further, I cut the call abruptly. Then he called me again and apologized. I accepted his apology. I trusted him not to tell anyone about my proposal but that wasn’t true.
His girlfriend asked me if I had ever proposed to her guy, to which I said a yes and left the scene. After a few days I came to know that he had spilled the beans right from the first day among all his friends.
This incident happened around 2 years ago. Now I have moved on and leading a happy life.
And the last embarrassing moment in my life was the last day of school. As Diwali vacations were going to start, I brought some crackers from home.
I wished to light them in school. The school authorities weren’t going to agree to this. So, I quietly went upstairs and lit one of the crackers.
I was caught red handed by one of my teachers. She scolded me in front of the whole class. She said it was not expected from me. That day luck wasn’t in my favor and I really felt bad and embarrassed.
Some embarrassing moments are lessons to us. We shouldn’t worry what people think about us.
We should move on from bad situations. One bad incident cannot erase our entire life. Every person comes into your life as a lesson.
We should learn from them so that we don’t commit the same mistake again.
