Awkward Moments of 2021!

 AS PROMISED IN MY:  

“AWKWARD” NEWSLETTER…!

(Newsletter can be found here)

… I COMPILED A LIST OF AWKWARD MOMENTS FROM OUR READERS BECAUSE:

 WE ALL NEED TO LAUGH SOMETIMES! 

OUR SOCIALLY AWKWARD MOMENTS OF 2021: 

  • Sent someone a baby gift for a boy instead of a girl
  • Left a voice message for some who was sitting shiva for their mother how special their father was
  • Showed up at the grocery as a newlywed with hair all clipped up. But no shaitel
  • Introduced myself to a new neighbor and asked them their name and she responded “I already ate by you for a shabbos meal!”
  • Ran to pickup my son from detention without shoes and only tights, and then got called into the principals office for an informal meeting
  • Called in sick to work and then bumped into the boss out for lunch with friends
  • Fell asleep on the window of a Chareidi bus in Israel and the woman behind me pulled open the shade, which Shaitel was stuck on… next thing I know it’s dangling from the window shade up on top
  • In middle of the class, realized I made a careless mistake. In the loudest voice, I screamed “Ani Tipish!!!” in Hebrew, meaning “I am stupid” but it came out sounding like I needed the bathroom! Within seconds, all eyes were on me
  • Was matching dresses with a women 3 (maybe 4!) times my age at my friends wedding
  • Ended a work call with “I love you”  
  • Tried kissing my grandmother’s cheek and ended up kissing on the lips
  • Had a Shidduch question about a boy and texting him the question directly accidentally
  • Trying to speak to the dentist when your mouth is propped open
  • Shared an armrest with someone the entire flight
  • Sent a voicenote to a chat without realizing and I was yelling at my kids
  • The teacher called on me to read out loud but I had no idea where we were up to
  • Started talking to an old friend with so much excitement and then she said “so sorry! But what’s your name again?”
  • Checked my phone after a bunch of hours, and there were no missed calls or texts
  • Tried to hold back a sneeze but it came out with a vengeance
  • Sneeze attacks in the middle of lectures! Tried to leave the room but also didn’t want to lose the sneeze and sneezed so loudly on my way out
  • When yawns are contagious
  • Fell down the 3 front steps on a first date because my mother convinced me to wear heels because the boy was tall
  • Asked someone what they’re wearing to a wedding and they told me they weren’t invited
  • Needed to pass someone walking down the street, so we both went to the right.  Then we both went to the left… and then back again to the right
  • Asked someone four times to repeat themselves and still couldn’t hear them 
  • Not understanding a joke but laughing anyway! And then they told me it‘s not the funny part yet
  • Laughing at a joke - and then a friend asking me to explain it but I really didn’t get it 
  • Didn’t know if a baby was a girl or a boy so had to have the whole conversation without saying he or she
  • Visited a friends house and their parents started yelling at them in front of me
  • Pulled a door harder and harder when it said push, and there was a crowd behind me
  • Realized I’ve been mispronouncing a word/name wrong for my entire life 
  • My teacher yelled at me to stop clicking my pen, but I had to click it one more time to use it.
  • Said goodbye to someone at shul and then realized we’re both walking in the same direction
  • That moment when I needed to put my hand down after waving at someone I thought I knew but didn’t 
  • Held the door opened for someone far away - forcing them to run over 
  • Replied to someone who I thought was talking to me but then I noticed they were wearing an AirPod 
  • Told a funny joke at the table but forgot the punch line halfway through 
  • Grabbed the pole on the subway and ended up holding someone else hand 
  • A: “How are you? B: “Doing well! How about you?” A: “Good thanks! You?”
  • Went in for the hug, when the other person wanted a handshake 
  • Went in to dance with the mother of the bride the same minute as someone else, and the walk of shame back to the circle
  • Calling my mother in law "Mommy" for the first time when I meant to say "Ma"
  • Having a link to my website on my Awkward newsletter that didn’t work! (Yes, that was me! How awkward!) so here it is again! 👇🏻

Meet Shifi

I have always been intrigued as to what makes some families healthier than others. One of the best decisions I’ve made was pursuing an advanced degree in Marriage and Family Therapy.  I have been told many times that my passion for the field is infectious and that my relentless pursuit in trying to find the “secrets to success” from the up-to-date research has actually become an obsession. My own children have been the greater impetus to the amount of time that I have spent, both in and out of school, researching how healthy families function and specifically what we need to do as parents to help our children. Thanks to the available literature and wonderful training, I’ve been able to uncover what I believe is the common denominator in healthy relationships: the development of true empathy.

Have Questions or Concerns about your child's Social and Emotional Health?

Check out Our New Virtual Course! It's gotten excellent reviews!

 

EG from Lakewood, NJ:

Shifi's course has changed the way I understand and interact with my children.  It gave me a whole new outlook on parenting and changed my whole mindset! I have learned that managing my own emotions is crucial to successful parenting, as well as showing empathy to my children.  Of course, it has been a work in progress but I have been blown away multiple times when applying Shifi's approach to my tantruming child.  The results are incredible! My relationship with my children has improved so much! I think every parent should take this course! Shifi's words of wisdom will change your life.

 

(NO, I didn’t write that review myself! It is totally from someone who has taken the course! ❤️  But, I always wondered if people make up their own reviews!) 

I should really think about this course! Let me find out more!
