    C) something else. Change your mind, or beliefs.

    Embarrassment is a feeling. It happens when something is revealed that we believe should not be.

    If you chose to believe that the specific event in question is okay to be revealed, the embarrassment goes away.

    Example: wardrobe malfunction leaves underwear visible. Could be embarassing, if the belief is "underwear should always be covered".

    Alternate belief: "Everyone has underwear. The underwear I have, can be purchased through a catalog. Catalogs and flyers are distributed to the general public along with the weekly newspaper, therefore, everyone has seen my underwear (in the catalog) anyhow, so it’s no big deal."

    On the other hand, if you have done something wrong, and attempted to hide it, and the wrongdoing was discovered, then embarrassment is appropriate. ‘Fess up, own up, make amends, then leave it in the past.

    He who denied it, supplied it. Try gas-x.

    It depends what caused the embarrassment. If it was something awkward you said, did or wore in a social situation, take it easy. Nobody probably remembers it by now. I’ve been relieved over the years to realize how little people actually analyze me in social situations. Most people are too busy thinking about themselves. On the other hand, if you are embarrassed because you said or did something that hurt someone’s feelings, you should probably talk it over with them. It is also helpful sometimes to think: "Will this matter in 5 years?" If the answer is no, it probably doesn’t matter that much now either. Take a deep breath and forgive yourself. Chalk it up as a learning experience.

    Then just go "meh" at the whole situation. It’s not like nobody’s ever been embarassed before, why do people take things so seriously?
