WHAT I LEARNED FROM MY MOST HUMILIATING MOMENT I consider myself to be very common, or in more recent terminology, basic. I’m a young, recentlywed college student still figuring life out. I’ve been embarrassed by myself numerous times. I could actually recount three embarrassing events that occurred today. I would describe myself as a happy, bright, clumsy, and directionally challenged person who enjoys children, baking, music, and horses. That is all that you truly need to know before I share my life’s secrets with you.
Many people sustain injuries while playing sports. That’s not awkward. I wish I could claim that I was hurt while playing a fun sport. It’s admirable that you sustained those wounds. However, I made a fool of myself when practicing fundamental soccer drills in 8th grade P.E.
A SOCCER MISS All of us pupils had been arranged into rows and pairs by the P.E. coach. We were practicing the traditional back-and-forth soccer ball pass. Everything was going rather smoothly. After that, we practiced stopping the ball with a foot and passing it back. Despite the fact that I am in no way athletic, I have frequently witnessed adults and young children using their feet to stop soccer balls. It seemed to be simple enough. I moved boldly to step on the ball and stop it after my partner kicked it to me. I had no idea that I shouldn’t have stepped on the ball. As soon as my foot touched the ball, I became aware that it was still moving and that I was becoming unbalanced. I made a bad error, I should have lifted my foot off the ball and regained my balance. I made the decision to step on the soccer ball with my foot that was still on the ground. I really don’t know why I did that. Naturally, I dropped to the ground like a dead mummy in a hurry.
It’s embarrassing to fall during physical education, especially if, like me, it’s your least favorite class of the day. But I got to see the well-known movie moment where the hapless young person stumbles and then opens his eyes to find a group of his classmates staring at him. That’s right, I briefly managed to pass out, giving my fellow students an opportunity to gather in a circle of concern before I could quickly sit up and act like everything was normal.
LEARNED LESSON My terrible experience made me hate P.E. lessons and exercising in front of others. When I was a junior in high school, what could seem like a humorous anecdote to someone else felt like the worst day ever. Fortunately, I learned from that embarrassing experience. It’s important to occasionally laugh at oneself, I’ve discovered. I now frequently chuckle at myself. I occasionally do some pretty awkward and uncomfortable things that are funny. You have the option to continue to feel sorry for or upset at yourself if you want to concentrate on your embarrassing missteps. Alternately, you could decide to see the humor in the circumstance, get over it, and live a happier life. When you aren’t worried about your past transgressions or embarrassing situations, life is so much more fun. There is no way to avoid every uncomfortable situation you may encounter, and I am fully aware that I still have a lot of embarrassing situations ahead of me. However, I intend to brush them off and develop myself.
