You know when you do something embarrassing and you hate yourself for it? Ya.. That's my life. I was running towards my friend who was coming over and I totally fell. Like real bad. I did like a forward roll and it was so awkward and I tried to play it cool but it was just more awkward..and I hate myself. Ugh. I'm such an idiot and now I'm in pain and she is probably judging me and can't I just go live in a hole of something? 🙃😒

  • Hi Annielane, accidents happen. You have nothing to be embarrassed about. The more important thing is Are You Okay?? No one would or should judge you for getting hurt. I hope your pain goes away soon. x

  • I just keep replaying it in my head. I don't know, everything hurts. My leg has a long cut on it and a bruise and it kinda hurts internally and my neck/shoulder kinda hurts and my arm/elbow hurts.. My ankle also hurts but it was already a problem but I might've made it worse. But I didn't tell anyone I fell cause or that I was hurt because it was my fault that I fell. I should've been more careful. I don't want to tell people and have them laugh at me.

  • Oh my dear, you really did get hurt bad. I am so sorry. It wasn't your fault that you fell. It could happen to anyone of us. I don't know of many people who would laugh at someone's pain. Maybe you should have a doctor take a quick look at all your bruises. When did all this happen? Did you hit your head at all? Keep us updated in how you are doing. At this time, I feel your feelings are hurting more than your physical pain. Don't be so hard on yourself, this is your time for a little TLC. x

  • No I don't need a doctor. I'll be fine. I didn't hit my head. I'm just sore. I'll be okay. Ya.. Thank you.

  • Ouch! Sounds like your fall has left a bigger scar in your mind than in your body. With social anxiety, your "wound" is already open, waiting for something embarrassing to happen and confirm that you or something you have done is laughable. Did your friend or anybody else really laugh at you? I doubt it! Forgive your accident and you will let the incident go.

    In the long term, seeing the funny side of your own mistakes (acceptance) can be easier on your mind. It will also reduce your fear of embarrassment.
