30 Cringy And Sad Moments That Will Forever Live As Screenshots On The Internet (New Pics)
Life is a tough nut to crack, and no matter how much we want it to be easy, fun, and fair (to us!), the truth is that’s not always the case. Let's face it – humans are notorious embarrassment (and secondhand embarrassment) machines that, time to time, end up in the weirdest, most questionable and seriously cringey situations.
Some of those moments end up in this corner of Reddit that reminds us all, even the most successful human specimens, that we are… just hoomans. “Sad Cringe” describes itself as “a place for awkward or embarrassing situations that also make you feel sad,” and from its 1.3M members, you can see that people are clearly living for this kind of content.

You called your teacher “mom.” Again. You slipped and fell at work in the middle of an important meeting. You… put your embarrassing scenario in and you will feel that heat wave coming on your cheeks, encompassing your heart, challenging your self-image, and shaking your dignity to its very core. It’s incredible how much we react to these seemingly insignificant situations; it’s part of what makes us humans.
Embarrassment is best described as an emotion dictated by a disconnect between how we feel we should respond or act in public and how we actually respond or act. We are most likely to be embarrassed when we believe we have not lived up to what society asks of us or when we are on the receiving end of undesired attention.
Sometimes, however, when these unfortunate and unpleasant situations multiply, you feel like the whole world is against you. In these moments, resilience and positivity are key, but these are skills many people still have to learn.
“There are days, weeks, months and even years when it seems like everything possible goes wrong. In my practice, sometimes my clients experience this, and we wind up joking that they are like Job, from the Old Testament,” Lise Deguire, a clinical psychologist and the author of multi-award winning book “Flashback Girl: Lessons on Resilience from a Burn Survivor” told Bored Panda.

And while sometimes life is like that, the good news is that there are ways to cope. “Maintaining a sense of humor is key, as well as maintaining a sense of perspective. Even many truly unfortunate people still have blessings in their lives,” Deguire explained.
Moreover, when we are miserable, we tend to focus repetitively on what has gone wrong. However, Deguire argues that it will improve your mood to turn your attention to what you do have. “Also, remember that life goes on. You won't always be unfortunate; it's a phase,” she added.

Having said that, the clinical psychologist agreed that it can certainly seem that some people are much unluckier than others. “Life can be random, and tragedies can happen to anyone, anywhere, at any time. Still, we can make choices to improve our ‘luck,’” she said.
We can all get back control by choosing supportive friends, making time for the people we love, saving extra money for the future, and eating healthy foods... “all these are examples of ways we can improve our lives.”In the long run, it can seem like we are lucky to have good relationships, savings, and good health, but Deguire points out that it’s probably because we did little things to help us attain these blessings.
