He knew I was super talkative so he would put me next to his desk so I would talk to him instead and then he would move me to the back of the class as far away from his as possible. When I talked in class he would say "willow stop talking please" and i would whisper "sorry!" and he would sigh and say "i can even hear your whispers. that's great.". once, i wanted to be taller than him so i walked on my tiptoes all day (he was still taller) and he looked me in the eyes and called me a shorty pants. And at the end of the year he told me "have fun in 8th grade, don't give the teachers too much trouble" (because i gave him the most trouble) i miss him so. so. so much, he was so fun. (EDIT: i forgot to say once we were coming up to vote on something and my last name starts with S and he said "anyone with a last name a-g come up...... now h-r......... now t-z....... okay i think we're done" and he was looking at me the whole time.

As someone who has rejected "lots" of people ( really just in elementary school, but some in middle and high), it's mostly cause I don't feel like dating. The person/people who have rejected you probly felt the same

Even if you were watching it there's no reason to be embarrassed! Kids shows can be fun. I occasionally watch Spongebob after my children go to bed XD

Same, but I know I'm not good at singing. I just do it for fun but I get embarrassed when I forget a word of the song or can't hold the note without needing a breath, even though literally nobody cares that I mess up

I often buy feminine hygiene products for my wife. Anyone who cares, or judges you, needs to grow up. We are humans, and bodies do some weird stuff.

love music that everybody "hated" like for exemple Nickelback. everyone make fun of them and i'm pretty sure they have lot of fans but many of them must keep it hiding. i remember when i was younger i had a tape of a female singer (not a "cool" one) and one of the guy at my school try to make fun of me for liking it. i just didn't care and the mocking stopped right there. i never be ashamed of loving something

Person, I bet your beautiful. I said this in another comment, but, society can suck it! I have "weird taste" ( my friend sent a picture of Oreo mango popsicle and it looks really good to me). Me being bi means that 25-50% of society doesn't accept me, who cares?! I live for me, no one else. Be proud of yourself, not ashamed! I know it's hard, but you need to learn to love your self!

Many things. My body being one of the main ones. I am I'm at a healthy weight for me and my genetics, but I still feel like I have to live up to expectations even though they're from myself for the most part, it's heavily impacted by society, however. I always feel slightly embarrassed if I'm proud of myself and let others know, because some small part of me always says 'Tch, you could do better' and that's the part I pay attention to most, unfortunately.

Order from one of the companies like Who Gives a C..p - eco friendly (bamboo fibre, or recycled paper, depending on which company you choose), fast home delivery, no plastic wrap. 👍 I get a big box that lasts us months, so I rarely need to think about it.

I used to be so conscious about my body, and how I have to consciously hold in my stomach muscles so that I can breathe properly (thoracogenic scoliosis). It made my posture weird. Also being body shamed by family members and other kids at school. Now I'm the opposite. I DGAF. I walk around my house in my underwear (or completely stark naked), and my kids don't care either. We have a "if you don't want to wear pants, you don't have to" policy at home.

I am so self conscious about my body I instinctively suck in my stomach, even if i am super way too skinny I still suck it in, I can't stop myself, it just happens. Even when no one can see me, like when I'm in the shower or home alone. The only time it stops is when I'm asleep.

This may sound crazy but speaking Spanish. My moms family is from Peru but she didn’t teach me when I was little so when I say stuff in Spanish in front of them the start treating me like a baby. I probably shouldn’t be embarrassed about that but I am.

Yeah, that's why I just come with a bathing suit on with regular clothes on over. Then, when your done swimming, just put those cloths back on. If you are going to go somewhere important after, then bring an extra pair of cloths. This might seem excessive, but it works for me

I got just recently diagnosed with HPV 1. I just feel so ashamed for the whole ordeal and am very afraid of passing it to my friends by accident. The burning blisters make me feel foul, ugly and "tainted". I also feel like no one would be willing to date me since I'll be carrying it for the rest of my life.
I wish I could just dig a hole in the ground and hide there (/^")
