“Oh, jeez—uh, hi there… I’m Embarrassed from the DBSA Mood Crew™. You probably know me from all the horribly awkward things I’ve done over the years. (Like that fart in math class… gah, why am I bringing that up?!) Anyway, I have a lot of experience with embarrassment. My friends Calm and Confident can usually help me to get through it, so I’ve created this worksheet to share some of the tips I’ve learned over the years!”
