I have such a problem with secondhand embarrassment that if I’m watching something and a character does something that I find even the littlest bit embarrassing I have to either mute the TV or plug my ears and avert my eyes. It makes me really anxious.
my problem is similar haha. i get really anxious when characters do stupid things/get into trouble sometimes. my best friend was teasing me for getting anxious while watching seinfeld because george is an idiot.
