How To: Deal with Embarrassment

embarassment

Can you believe that this week is coming to an end already?! I feel like this week has gone by so fast. Although, I must say I’m pretty excited about the weekend. #TGIF :p After yesterday’s depressing post, I decided to go on something lighter that does not involve too much thinking/ reflection.

One of the most common things we deal with is embarrassment, no judgements there! Mistakes and Errors are a part of life whether we like it or not. The worst part is knowing that everyone in the world knows about it where you can even hear them laughing at your face. As much as we would all like to move to a tiny country no one’s ever heard of, running away is NOT a solution. I agree that it seems like the best and easiest thing to do. But trust me If anything, acting like a ‘coward’ makes the whole situation worse.

Here are a few things we should keep in mind when dealing with those types of situation.

1) Hold your Head High

The only worst enemy in this situation is our minds battling thoughts constantly. Stop overanalysing or questioning what should have happened but instead grow and flourish from mistakes.

2) Take Responsibility

This is the tricky part since the solution lies in the problem itself. The best way to take responsibility is to apologise. Owning up to your mistakes will not only improve the situation, it defines your character and its what will make you look more admirable. Be careful of making that mistake seem like a joke, humour has its price. The key is not to take it too seriously or too lightly.

3) Rely on your Support System

In this situation, it’s always best to have a “shoulder to lean on”. This can be anyone from your family and friends. The more people you have supporting you, the quicker this gets over. ย It may be painful to the people you love after such a blunder, but they are the ones comforting you and making you realise that they’re always there for you.

4) Learn from it

All men make mistakes. But only wise men learn from it- Winston Churchill

The most important thing is to learn from your mistakes. If this behaviour of yours casts doubt on your judgement and maturity, then there’s just a bigger lesson to learn.

5) Move On

Ultimately, embarrassment is just a fleeting thing- its painful but quick. What others regard you as, should not matter. The only opinions you should consider are yours and from those people around you who loves you. Take your punishment, learn a lesson and get on with your life.

From now on, there is absolutely no reason to be embarrassed. Only you can haunt yourself with your past. Being human means making mistakes, learning from it and becoming a better person afterwards.

Hope this helps!

Take a Moment: Ebola Outbreak

IMG_2636

“Take a Moment” is a special blog post that focuses on current worldwide issues that we tend to neglect. Acknowledging these issues by including them in our prayers and showing compassion through certain ways possible.

The Ebola Virus Disease also known as EVD (EHF) causes serious illness and even fatality after its first major outbreak in West Africa, 1976. ย The contagious disease has caused deaths recently in March 2014, spreading across land borders. Continuous research trials has been carried out to find a vaccine to contain the disease. The fast-tracked pace of the trial has been dictated by the alarming spread of this deadly virus, which has killed more than 3800 people.

Compassion in Action

The first Ebola patient diagnosed was exposed to the disease while trying to help an infected pregnant woman to a hospital in Liberia, where she was turned away due to lack of space. He then helped her get home and carried her into the house where she passed away. Despite knowing the fact that it was a dangerous disease, he risked his life for a noble deed.

“His suffering is over,” his partner Louise Troh said in a statement. “My family is in deep sadness and grief, but we leave him in the hands of God. Our deepest sympathies go out to his father and family in Liberia and here in America. Eric was a wonderful man who showed compassion toward all.”

His compassion touched many people who are still mourning his loss and inspired many more to help the helpless. Every act of kindness counts just as every drop in the ocean.

An act of compassion doesn’t have to be giving up our life for others. Even holding a door for the person behind you or smiling at a stranger (well not in a creepy kind of way- but you know what i mean!). I can assure you ย the Joy in helping others, is indescribable! Just like a rush of adrenaline. Not convinced? Try it out yourself!

I DARE YOU TO COMPLETE AT LEAST ONE OF THESE ๐Ÿ™‚ย 

  1. Take a MomentVisit someone lonely/ill and console them.
  2. Offer a hug to someone crying.
  3. Cheer up someone angry.
  4. Offer your seat to an elderly.
  5. Offer a streetwalker a ride.
  6. Tip a waiter generously.
  7. Give a person you dislike a compliment.
  8. Buy lunch for a homeless person.

Without compassion, humanity ceases to exist.

Stop being and start acting! x

Welcome to My Blog!

Sisterly Love

A Family Photo Shoot my sister and I attended a while back. We decided to act a little crazy! #oops :p

All my life, I’ve always wanted to do something challenging and different. I’ve always had ideas firing up my brain about starting an “Inspirational blog“. I consider starting this blog as a form of mutualism since, I truly hope that it inspires me as much as it inspires people.

Main Objectiveย 

Some will comment on the fact that I’m only 16 and I’m trying to “teach” people how to live a better life when this most definitely is NOT the case. As a teenager, the issues I deal with may not be the worst but, this does not make coping with it any easier. Everyone deals with similar kinds of emotional stress on a daily basis. This is a common thread of that we get to hopefully work on with hope and positivity.

Everything in the future blog posts will mainly comprise on real-life issues and its aspired coping mechanism. All based on my own thoughts and perspectives. This covers everything from Trending Topics, Types of Personality, Personal Advice or even Useful Ideas. Treasures of happiness are always burried underneath negativity and complications. Keeping it short and concise, I hope that the readers find it easy to relate to. ย Here’s to uncovering tid-bits that’ll hopefully make life more exciting! ๐Ÿ™‚
