If you’re looking for ways top stop blushing, you could spend a lifetime trying the next temporary solution, the latest green tinted make-up or some kind of foul home remedy that ends up gathering dust in the cupboard. In reality, there is but a few genuine ways to stop blushing for good. In fact. the only way to stop blushing or at best to calm in down to a comfortable level of control is to reprogram our minds and subconscious thoughts. Before we reach that stage, we first need to change our outlook on everyday things in life in order to truly stop the mental negativity that causes and triggers blushing in the first place. I’d like to explain how we can understand how other people might perceive our blushing, simply by understanding how we would act if the tables were turned… As a child, when we see something we are not familiar with such as a scary looking dog or a road with cars rushing past, we stare and retract from them. As an adult, these reactions become less as we experience more. However, we still have this natural instinctive reaction to things we are not too familiar with. So, when we see someone who blushes excessively or appears extremely shy, we tend to react just as we did as that young child – we stare and retract ourselves. On the other hand, some people react in different ways such as laughter, criticising or questioning. These alternative reactions can be equally hard for those who suffer from shyness and blushing due to these reactions being the very cause of shyness and blushing in the first place. Most of us however, take a little time to adjust to something new or less ordinary but, just as the child did, we become accustomed to such things in other people and move on. So, knowing that by our very nature, other people’s reactions and thoughts are only temporary… …it becomes easier to accept our initial shyness and blushing behaviours. Once everyone else has moved on after becoming accustomed to your uniqueness, you should also move on with them. It is impossible to venture throughout this wonderful world if you continue to let a pre-occupation about your skin tone or personality hold you back. All it tales is a little paddle in the big wide world to make many people realize that life is not so much about themselves but about others. If we all became so obsessed with ourselves the world would be a boring place to live in. Furthermore, it is vital to understand that friendships and respect are gained from listening, helping and involving yourself in others. People are attracted to others who show interest and provide benefits in their own lives. So whether or not you are prone to blushing, you will always have the ability to be a great friend, have great friends and achieve whatever you desire with a little dedication and hard work. So look outward in life, in order to feel better inward. Shift the focus of your personal problems to that of helping others with theirs, and you will soon notice the shyness and blushing fading away like an old painting.
