Embarrassment from comprehension problems
I've often had a hard time understanding certain things. Basically, if I'm not personally interested in something, I find it extremely difficult to understand it (like math or politics), but I'm ok when it comes to things I like (such as animals or watching crime shows).
But whenever I don't understand something, people always point it out and explain it to me, and I get really embarrassed. I feel like I'm being treated like a child, and I don't like it when people explain things to me when I didn't ask for it. How can I be kind in responding to that? Or should I just ignore it? I just feel like I'm being talked down to and I don't like it.
