It Happens To Everyone! Things You Shouldn't Be Embarrassed About

Life is, and has always been, messy. Our bodies are beautiful marvels of nature but they’re often held to unreachable standards. It’s time to stop the madness and accept the fact that these are not things to be embarrassed about, these are just facts of life!

Life is, and has always been, messy. Our bodies are beautiful marvels of nature but they’re often held to unreachable standards. It’s time to stop the madness and accept the fact that these are not things to be embarrassed about, these are just facts of life!

In partnership with Depend, we celebrate all that life has to offer -- the good, the not-so-good and the seemingly embarrassing.

Runny Nose

Why do we act as if it’s the end of the world to get caught with a runny nose. Snot happens, so instead of getting mortified by the mucus parade, accept that it’s a reality of life, hold your head high and grab a tissue.

Crying

Crying is a perfectly legitimate and healthy emotional response to being sad, angry, frustrated or feeling overwhelmed. But it’s often frowned upon when we do it, even if it’s a happy cry. Time to embrace our soft sides, and weep with pride.

Having Food In Your Teeth

We never understood the nasty things people say about other people that have stuff in their teeth. We grind and chew food with our pearly whites so it’s bound to happen. Instead of being all hoity-toity, give your friend a subtle signal — and a toothpick.

Laughing Until You Wet Yourself

Laughing is one of life’s greatest joys but laughing until you wet yourself doesn’t tend to be anyone’s favourite experience. But the fact of the matter is that so many others have been in your shoes. Instead of getting embarrassed about it, be thankful that something made us laugh so incredibly hard that our body couldn’t contain itself.

Flatulence

Some people are put off by farting, we get that, but everyone on this planet passes gas. They may smell sometimes, but do you know what really stinks? You being embarrassed of your flatulence.

There’s no need to be embarrassed by bladder incontinence especially with Depend FIT-FLEX Underwear for Women is now more flexible* to move with you. Featuring all-around leg elastics and a smooth, close-to-body fit, this slip-on protection is soft, quiet and breathable for outstanding comfort.
