so i'm a male to start off with. i don't know many males who have issues with blushing, it isn't typically a masculine problem i don't think. so i go bright red when i get embarassed. i attribute my lack of social skills to the way i blush and how i try to avoid it at all costs. the feeling of being embarassed and knowing you've gone red is the most terrifying feeling. and if anyone points out that i've gone red i get filled with so much shame and anxiety. i've dealt with this since i can remember. i'll avoid talking to people so that i don't risk blushing. it's horrible knowing that i can't hide my emotions. i wish i didn't go red. when you blush easily it means you can't get away with any feelings. it doesn't help with self image when you feel so inferior and weak because i blush so strongly and so easily. not looking for a way to stop it because i know i can't, it's just part of who i am. looking for advice on how to deal with it when it happens and not feel so ashamed when it does. simply "not giving a shit" doesn't work for me. because i DO give a shit!
