“O, beware, my lord, of jealousy;
It is the green-eyed monster which doth mock”

The Fear of Embarrassment

Do you like it when people laugh at you? Neither do I. We all have a fundamental need to maintain our dignity. My goodness, people have gone to war over “slights.” We all have a need to “save face” and not be embarrassed. We all have a need to make […]
