Embarrassing Tales

June 18, 2014

in the generous life

Has your husband ever embarrassed you? Have you ever embarrassed him?

Pick a good time to talk about those moments and work to understand the “why” and “what” of embarrassment. Why was he embarrassed? Why were you embarrassed? What was said or done that played into that? (Be sure to gently speak back his perspectives and let him know that you’ve heard him.) How can you avoid future embarrassments?

I remember when we just started dating, I got wasted at his birthday party and blacked out. Back then it felt extremely embarassing, even though today when we talk about it we just think it’s hilarious. I guess our attitude to this accident has changed for the better.

I think sometimes we get embarrassed for no good reason. I have occasionally been embarrassed because of my husband’s humor (not dirty jokes, just things that I thought were wrong for the setting or that were not understood as humorous by others), and I think he has sometimes been embarrassed by my speaking my opinions frankly. There are a lot of ways to avoid future embarrassments, but I think the best one is to simply let it go. Remember that your spouse is a separate person from you with a right to his or her own personality. He or she will never say and do things exactly as you would, and that is as it should be.
