What is blushing?
Blushing is a self-conscious emotion determined by a disconnect between how we should react or act in public and how we should react or act. We can most likely be ashamed when we believe we have not lived up to what society asks of us or when we are receiving unwanted attention. For example, the context also matters, you won't be ashamed if you walk in your own house and take it out and that's another story.
When you are in a tense emotional state, such as the shame of hitting someone's cup of coffee, or the thrill of meeting the eyes of a very attractive person, your body releases adrenaline. This causes blood vessels to dilate so that blood and oxygen can move faster through the body. The veins in your face also dilate, allowing more blood to flow through and thus your face will become red.
And not only does your cheeks blush, the "red areas" can also include ears, neck and chest, and each person also blushes in different ways. Some people blush very quickly, some slowly spread to other parts of the body. Some people blush more easily than others, and sometimes others suffer from the fear of erythrophobia.
Blushing is actually a common human response to social attention. Blushing often occurs when meeting someone important, receiving a compliment, or experiencing special emotions in a social situation. Everyone is like that, although some people blush more often than others. Men do not often blush as much as women.
The belief that a person is blushing brings negative beliefs about another's judgment, and may even raise a blush response.
Researchers have also found that our fear of blushing in front of others, or their acknowledgment of their blushing, can cause us to change our behavior in a way that leads to poor judgment from others. It's not a blush that causes people to judge us negatively, but how we modify our reactions. It ends up being a kind of self-fulfilling prophecy.
One study that looked at the starting effect of blushing and what they discovered surprised me. When individuals are singing in front of a group of people (an embarrassing task), their faces will turn red wherever the majority of people are directing their gazes. By examining where blood flow is led, the researchers determined that simply staring can cause an ipsilals (meaning it affects the same side of the body) increasing blood flow to the face. What are the results of all of this? If you're doing something embarrassing and people are staring at you, you might blush. That's why I personally always sit in front of class, I never know who's staring at me or not.
That is to say: everyone blushes once in a lifetime. But, it is true that some people, because of the color of their skin, do not notice too much that it has become "red". But not being seen doesn't mean it doesn't exist: the feeling is there.
The physiological cause of redness is what we have mentioned: our nervous system responds to an external stimulus that causes it to trigger blood production. This causes the capillaries to dilate and thus, blurring the face. This reaction that takes place in the nervous system is called "autonomous", that is, exists independently and we cannot control.

Maven lingers at the door, his smile fading a little when I leave his side. “You’re not coming.” It isn’t a question. He shakes his head. “You’ll have enough to worry about without me tagging along.” I don’t have to be a genius to see the truth in his words. But just because he isn’t coming doesn’t mean I will forget what he’s done for me already. Without thinking, I throw my arms around Maven.

19. “Well, let's argue this out, Mr Blank. You, who represent Society, have the right to pay me four hundred francs a month. That's my market value, for I am an inefficient member of Society, slow in the uptake, uncertain, slightly damaged in the fray, there's no denying it. So you have the right to pay me four hundred francs a month, to lodge me in a small, dark room, to clothe me shabbily, to harass me with worry and monotony and unsatisfied longings till you get me to the point when I blush at a look, cry at a word. We can't all be happy, we can't all be rich, we can't all be lucky - and it would be so much less fun if we were. Isn't it so, Mr Blank?

Blood is everything and everything is blood.” - Catherynne M. Valente

Although we have shown that blushing NOT a disease, it is a fact that you should see a specialist in case the condition is affecting us directly. You should consult a therapist in case you experience any of the following:
- It prevents you from living a normal life
- The blush is creating an uncontrollable tension and anguish
- You are locking yourself up for fear of blushing
Blushing is not a disease, nor a bad thing, but sometimes it is also a beauty opportunity for people. However, this phenomenon sometimes interferes with normal communication, which will be detrimental to our work.
The only easy way to stop blushing is to take a deep breath and let the moment the blood and adrenaline rush to your face pass. Feeling too embarrassed about your shyness only makes things worse. And of course, the more you worry about blushing, the more likely it will happen.
However, it seems we should be proud of the blushing face. Because research has shown that people who blush easily are more generous, trustworthy, and virtuous people. Women tend to blush more, and scientists suspect that is their way to prove to men that they are virtuous.
Therefore, first of all, it is necessary to eradicate self-esteem and objectively self-esteem to promote their strengths. Thoroughly clear psychological anxiety about the body, must be confident, not think that you are not equal. Believe that it is completely possible to use our speech, speech, and personality to become a likable, successful person.
