I get really awkward about the smallest things

Like yesterday, I watched a livestream video on facebook of some girl I know without realizing she knows I'm viewing it, she said hi to me then the gay guys started singing to me on fb live.
Now I feel so awkward and embarassed everyone can see that or know I viewed it.

Was just curious.....

Last week I was at the supermarket and went without paying, I rushed back in though. I was depressed at the time and my mind somewhere else

Can't help but imagine if security caught me before I turned round to go to the till.
And it's been playing in my head since.

I can't seem to just let go.
Could list a lot of awkward situations still in my mind this year that linger around.
I now feel like hiding away....

I don't pretend to understand what live stream is (I'm 63 and a technophobe). But it sounds as though you are obsessing over minor problems and that highlights something deeper going on. I still check myself after visiting people and go over the conversations and check what I said. If anything was out of order I cringe inwardly. Its unpleasant isn't it?

Nowadays I practise Mindfulness and that helps immensely with these reactions. It takes a lot of practice but it works. I will send you a link to a very brief intro we have on here.

Thanks for your advice, as for live stream, it's live broadcast, like on tv where they film it live, except over the internet.
