Hallway of Awkwardness!
We all hate it, the awkward feeling we get in countless situations, and we know for sure as long as we're living, and in any place called earth, we'll keep bumping into more of these situation, each one worse than the other. But what the fun part is, how well will you handle each one, will you be clumsy as Fergie in her videos? Will you be straight as you don’t want to be? Or will you get the part of the best player of this silly game of life? Well, get listed!
-You’re ex best friend throws a birthday party, or just a party, inviting all the people you know and leaving you out of it!
What do you do: Furious? Angry? Jealous? Yes, yes and yes! But do you really want to go to a party were you don’t get along with anyone really? I’m guessing no, but another way to take out that anger of yours in a very healthy and even polite way is to buy a small gift, even a card, saying all the good things you wish to say whether it’s a congrat or wishing happiness, and send it over whether by yourself, even though you’re not invited and you know what they say “the parties you’ll want to attend are the ones you’re not invited to!” deliver, and get out! Better yet, you could send it through a friend to deliver it. That way you’re being polite in expressing your feelings and making him/her see what a great friend you are, in other words “what a loss”.
-You bump into your ex boy/girlfriend or your ex best friend in the hall way of awkwardness.
What do you do: Laugh! Simply, you laugh, and greet them, sound like you’re happy, ask them how they’ve been, hows everything going, and tell them the reason why are you around for, be goofy and loose, but be sure to be the one to excuse to go first, don’t make this stand up for more than a minute, tell them you’re on a rush, you got to meet up with a friend, be sure to tell them goodbye and that you’ll see them soon.
-You spot your ex best friend or ex Boyfriend in the same café’ you’re attending, and your friend you’re hanging out with, wants to go for a hi, since he/she is friends with them.
What do you do? Being a drama queen in the moment doesn’t sound much of an exaggeration! But do you really want to be the person who makes people chose? That will make you sound selfish and childish, really. But what you can do is go along with him/her for a quick hi too, be the nicer one, it always kills the person, and leaves nothing for them to talk about. You’ll appear confidant, strong and mature by being over the awkwardness the situation had put you both through.
-Your hanging out with your friends and your BF, suddenly you both picked up a fight at the table and he dumps you in front of everyone!
What do you do: Humiliation! Yes, embarrassed? Pretty much! He may even ask you to leave the table, but do you do that? H*ll no! Never, you could laugh and lay back at your chair, since he’s the one is supposedly to leave, not you, other wise you’ll look like a door mat or a weak person. You may feel like shedding one tear to take that stress out of your guts, but wait, you need to save face in front of everyone by appearing the careless strong type of a person that nothing gets through you. So put things aside and pretend it didn’t happen, and you can start talking about embarrassing things that happened to you, with a jokie style.
PS: Remember whatever happens on the table your real friends will know what to do, they will save your face and they will come to the rescue, so don’t worry you’re healing kit is right beside you.
