January 5, 2017, Cringe-worthy Do you feel uncomfortable when you see someone else being embarrassed? What’s most likely to make you squirm?
Yes, it makes me very uncomfortable to see someone else being embarrassed. Today, one of the women I work with slipped and fell. Several of us jumped to her aid, but another woman laughed. A big, rowdy, mean laugh meant to humiliate T more than she already was. I wanted to cry for her.
When I was a kid, my dad used to tell me, "Honey, you just feel too much."
