Do you remember the first time your felt humiliation?
I always felt humiliated before being a Christian. .. but now a bit and i know this would be stripped away by the Power of Jesus Love. Amen.
When I was a kid I'd have autistic fits and my parents would stand and laugh at me and say, "Look at yourself, Scott, your making a fool of yourself," that was pretty humiliating. I'd be punching myself in the face and banging my head off the floor.
I guess around this same time my dad used to like to take my hands and punch me in the face with them and say, "Stop hitting yourself Scott. Why are you hitting yourself Scott?" My dad thought this was a riot, but it was fairly humiliating, considering that I had this problem where I had fits and punched myself in the face.
The first time I was about 8 years of age and my cousin, a year younger, had asked me what I did when I went to the Catholic Church. I told her about it as we walked into my Gran's house where her Mum, my Aunt was waiting. My cousin told my Aunt what I had said about the church and the next thing I knew this Aunt of mine was literally screaming at me 'what are you telling her all that for!" (her family didn't go to any church). I was so shocked and upset and couldn't understand what I had done wrong. I felt that I had done a very, very bad thing indeed but couldn't figure out why. What was also humiliating and hurtful was that none of the other adults present - including my Mum and Gran said anything to her. I'n 50 years old now and still feel uncomfortable in this Aunt's presence - and no I never got 'I'm sorry for screaming at you' or any explanation. I could never imagine me ever screaming at any of my nieces and nephews like she did to me.
I was about 8 years old on a piano presentation and I forgot some notes and the audience went laughing out loud. I cried and my piano teacher told me that even Beethoven make mistakes. I learned later on that to be successful you must learn from your mistakes. The reason I always remember that day because my piano teacher happens to be my aunt and she keep telling this story to me.
wow, I read this question and was immediately back in my childhood. We were in the kitchen and my father was trying to teach me how to tie my shoes. I remember feeling frustrated, embarrased and humiliated because I was having a hard time and he had no patience with me. He made me feel like an idiot, even at that young age.
It was not me but one of my colleague was humiliated in front of us in the meeting. Our boss who was the MD given a good dressing to one of the staff who was the director of the company in front of everyone in the meeting.
We thought it would be better if he had done in private office than humiliating him in front of all.
Yes, now that you mention it. The earliest humiliating moment I can recall dates back to when I was a five year old. In those days, once a mother had taken her child to school for the very first time on the initial day, kids used to then make their way to school by themselves. The world wasn't paranoid about 'child abductions,' at least, in London, England where I lived. Every body walked, or caught a bus or tram.
So on the third or fourth day I dressed myself and went off to school. Suddenly I was being laughed at by the other kids. The reason? I'd put my pants (short trousers) on back to front. I think even Mum had a laugh when I got home.
