Sharing the incident with others will make you feel light, and there is a good probability that others may share their incidents as well.

Accept who you are: Accepting yourself is a bigger step in the resolution of a mere problem of embarrassment. You have to believe you are a beautiful mess in your world and nobody ever could change this fact. A mere humiliation is never enough to bring you down.
