You act like you aren’t embarrassed around others. But then you go home and rerun the scene through your head over and over again until you feel sick.
You blush. You stumble over your words. It’s incredibly obvious that you feel uncomfortable.
You leave the room, leave the situation. You need to get out of there as quickly as possible.
You apologize. You feel like whatever went wrong is your fault and you try to fix it.
You immediately grab your phone to text your friends about what’s happening to you. Having someone on your side makes you feel better.
You don’t let awkwardness phase you. It happens, so there’s no use in dwelling on it.
You pretend nothing is wrong. You act like everything is normal.
You laugh off whatever mistake you’ve made. You try to make a joke out of the situation to ease the tension.
You clam up. You stop talking because you don’t want to make it worse.
You pop in earbuds or bury your nose in a book. You try your best to escape.
You freak out. You start worrying everyone hates you and wants nothing to do with you.
You start fidgeting with your jewelry or your hair. You’re unable to sit still and keep squirming.
