how each sign reacts to being embarrassed

Being embarrassed SUCKS. But it happens to everyone and it happens all the time, so there really isn't anything to be ashamed about.

Some people get away super-easy though. Their most embarrassing moment is something small, like burping in someone's face.

Other people, though, have to deal with their embarrassment on a bigger scale — like falling flat on their face during graduation in front of everyone. I don't care if they say they're not embarrassed... good for them! But we all know that doesn't happen without upsetting you at least a little bit.

What's important about getting embarrassed is how you decide to handle it.

I have so much respect for people who handle their embarrassment with grace. They snap right back like nothing happened and continue on. 

But everyone handles their embarrassment in their own way, and there’s definitely no judgment here.

I’ve probably had just about every reaction thinkable. Laughing. Laughing so hard that I’ve cried. No laughing at all ... just crying.

And I've definitely tried to run away from the situation or try to bring someone else down with me. 

It's always hard to decide how you're going to react to any situation. But maybe we don't have as much of a choice that we think.

Maybe our zodiac signs play a huge part in whether we bounce back real quick or hide in a corner and never leave the house again. I mean, the stars have a lot to say about our personalities, how we react and how we deal, so why not with embarrassment too? 

Read on to see how all the different zodiac signs react to being embarrassed!
