n. the fear of ridicule

This fear has become a scary reality nowadays. It is commonplace to feel afraid of interacting with people out of the fear that they will laugh at you for the mistakes that you make. This is not okay! Mistakes are an essential part of human nature and without them we would never learn anything new. Therefore, it is not okay that people ridicule everyone for the small mistakes that they make. Next time you encounter someone that has made a mistake, be patient and let them fix it without calling them out for it.
