My Face Color

There are times when I'm embarrassed or shy and my face would turn red/pink. It's pretty normal when our faces change to red/pink color when we feel shy or embarrassed for whatever reason, but sometimes it's just a leftover or simply from the heat and people judge it otherwise. That situation is really awkward. Sometimes people won't even believe your explanation and I'm so tired of it.

My face can easily turn to red/pink color when I'm in the heat. My face turns to red/pink color when I feel embarrassed or shy or etc. about something. Sometimes I myself don't even know the reason. Well, the point is people like to interpret it in the wrong way. There was a time when I went to the hair salon to have my hair shampoo and the staff there kept questioning me about my face like I was their prisoner or something. I was watching a sad movie (a movie about a loyal dog and its master) and almost moved to tears before heading to that salon. So my face turned red/pink since I was home and the color was still there on my face when I reached the salon. When I reached there, I simply became their target. What the heaven! I patiently explained to them the reason behind it. One after another and there's plenty of them. The moment the new one entered, they started questioning about my face color. Grrrr! They thought I used make-up and that was (and is and will be) one of the responses I hate the most. I, 23 years old, haven't used make-up even for once yet and if I were to use it one day, I won't make my face become a clown either. It's really annoying when people think that. And this morning, there's another misunderstanding happened. I paid a visit to the dentist. While he's performing his job, I wanted to cough, but I tried to hold it back. I held it back until my tears rolled down and my face became red/pink. When he and his assistant saw that, they were completely in terror. They thought I was hurt and trying to find the mishap. It's pretty funny, though. I wanted to tell them the reason, but I was too lazy and moody to do so. Should I explain to them next week when I go there again? Too late already, right? Yeah, I think so. I'll definitely tell them if it were to happen again anyway.

Some people say that it's cute to have such face, but I think it's a burden or more like a sin. You can't hide your true feeling and you may receive a mountain of misjudgment or misinterpretation from that.  

p.s. For some reason, I think it's a disease. Think so?

I laughed so much at the dentist-part! LolZZZ.... I experienced that,too! Well, not with the doctor, though. I was sitting quietly taking the exam, and I wanted to cough, but that would annoy others, so I tried to hold back till my face turned red and tears got in my eyes. My teacher thought I was crying because I didn't know the answer to the questions! Hahaha.... This is so embarrassing!

P.S Can you feel the flow of your blood when it rushes up on your face? Yeah, I do feel that.
