It happened today and now I’m really worried that people think that I am stupid.
The teacher asked me a question on something and I got it right which was fine. I thought she was done asking me things so just as I start concentrating on my work again she asks me something else which I didn’t hear so I ask her to repeat it. I wasn’t really concentrating in the lesson so I suppose it was my bad anyway.
Some people were still talking in the lesson so again I didn’t hear her so I just replied with a ‘I don’t know’. Then the people around me started saying “It’s ____” and ”The answer is ____” but by then I’m starting to get really stressed and embarrassed and everyones words are just overlapping so I just kept saying ‘I don’t know’ to the teacher which then provokes another wave of “The answer is ____”. So then the teacher shuts everyone up and I got the answer just fine after i FINALLY hear what the question was and she explains it.

I’ve never felt more embarrassed, even though I know it’s silly . I’ve always felt really conscious about my reputation in class and what others think of me, so I felt kind of upset when speaking to a friend about it and then just being sidetracked to another subject. I know my intelligence, and I know that I’ve been put in a top set for a reason. It’s just these rare times that make me feel so stupid .
