G Mitchell Baker's Most Emberrassing moment, or is it?

What is the most embarrassing moment of your life?

I often wonder about this … I sit here, asking the question repeatedly and ponder the fact the experience of embarrassment is something I really do not recall much, if any. I ask myself, ‘Is there the type of person who does not experience embarrassment?  Am I that kind of person?’

‘Embarrassment’ can be defined as ‘to cause confusion and shame to; make uncomfortable self-conscious; disconcerted…’

Generally, I do not think I readily accept ‘embarrassment’ and have some kind of way of thinking that changes over to direct the circumstances that renders the situation other than confused or shameful … I try to keep things comfortable without being overly self-conscious…  I somewhat think of ‘embarrassment’ as a backward scenario, while I like to be forward looking … I consider ‘Okay what is the better was to view this?’  I like to turn potential negatives into a pluses by not dwelling on ‘embarrassment’ and getting after what is productive, good about the situation…

Having said as much, I have noticed, when I approach things this way, how many people try to embarrass others.  I think it’s a control tactic for many and when they cannot achieve as much with me, they back off, or back away … Sometimes I think my martial arts training and certain eastern philosophy taught within that context has something to do with my approach…   There is a lot to think about, but I’m going to leave things as they are for now.
