I have definitely had my fair share of embarrassing moments. From falling flat on my face on stage when I was in 5th grade to everyone finding about different crushes I had. That one definitely happened multiple times. But the important thing is, even though those situations were incredibly embarrassing, I survived them and you can survive your embarrassing moments , too. Start by laughing at yourself. If people are laughing at you, it's probably because whatever happened is funny and that's okay. Just laugh with them. Show them that you're not that worried about it. It's not a big deal, you know? And if it is a big deal and it really hurts that they're laughing, pretend it's not. Smile, laugh through it, you'll get over it sooner than you think. Everyone has embarrassing moments. I've already told you what I have. Everyone I know has had something really embarrassing happen to them and all of them have survived it. See if you can learn something from that situation.

Take away from it what you can. Remember that this will pass. You will get over it and it will be okay. Those things I was talking about don't even embarrass me anymore. Like most evil terrible things in middle school, you will get through the most embarrassing moment in your life.
