Who doesn't love mocking our friends' embarrassing tales from school, college, work, parties (most likely) among other occasions? But remember all the trash-talking might just come full-circle right back at you when you experience an embarrassing incident yourself.
Everyone has been through mortifying events in their lives. The type where it is better to take it with you to your grave than having to relive the experience time and again through your friends' constant trolls or your own wildly vicarious, self-analysing mind.
In addition, there are these netizens, like the Internet police, who carry smartphones ready to snap your photo to upload it online in seconds, that make even a normal mistake seem oh-so-embarrassing!
Taking all the humour in your stride and to enjoy being the butt-of-jokes is one way of going about dealing with embarrassment.
Since awkward moments only prove that every human on this planet is alike in terms of social behaviour. There shouldn't be any need of validating an attribute that is natural. It is like mocking a pig for rolling in the gutter the entire day. Embarrassment is a universal phenomenon, not to worry.

Hope you've laughed as hard as you must've cringed reading this post.
Always remember: One can either get embarrassed by acting stupid or have fun while others embarrass themselves. It's a conscious choice you make.
