What Does Blushing Mean?

When we blush, we tend to think that we are doing so for a reason. Well, there is a reason – in fact there are many reasons. But what does blushing mean to you?

Some of us blush because we naturally feel embarrassed, some of us blush because of the reactions to the foods we eat, some of us blush because we can’t help it.

So if you feel that blushing is a problem but is caused by something you eat or drink then you’re in a good position to control it. All you need to do is monitor what you eat or drink.

On the other hand, if you blush from embarrassment, you can feel safe that you are among the millions of other people that blush from embarrassment too.

So what happens when you fall into the last category – when you blush because you can’t help it?

Well, just like you can control what you eat and drink, you can also control what you think and when. Sure, it’s a little harder and takes some regular practice…but the benefits you will see will be priceless.

Blushing when associated from emotional or psychological triggers means that your physical self is expressing a mental or psychological issue.

Blushing is commonly associated with exercise, embarrassment or other physical triggers but when we blush because of a little voice inside our heads, we must take a serious decision to do something positive to reduce blushing caused by these emotional triggers.

The first step is to identify the emotional triggers. The most common emotional triggers are low self confidence, low self esteem and high self awareness.

Ask yourself if these are things which you feel might be affecting you personally. If they are, and you can notice the link between feelings and the actual times the blushing occurs, you are in good position to start developing a new outlook towards the way you view yourself and the world around you.

Blushing can be appropriately contributed to a personal view have of ourselves. If we are asked a question, looked at, made fun of, shown up in public or we underachieve, get stressed or make a mistake we tend to blush.


Because in our subliminal mind we are telling ourselves that we are wrong, we are not as good as we would like to be, we are stupid, we deserve to be made fun of, we can’t handle the situation. But these thoughts are all quite simply signs of low self esteem of rock bottom self confidence.

If you are really concerned about blushing and what it means, make sure you link the blushing incidents to the situation you are in. Where are you? What are you doing? What are you eating or drinking? What are you feeling leading up to the blushing incident?

Once you can relate the situation to the blushing, you can better understand what blushing means to you personally. After all, blushing means very different things to many different people.
