Questions about example sentences with, and the definition and usage of "Embarrassment"

The meaning of "Embarrassment" in various phrases and sentences

Q: What does we have a low embarrassment threshold. mean?
A: I have never heard it used this way exactly, but I think I know what it means - "We get embarrassed easily."
Here is a definition of threshold: "the magnitude or intensity that must be exceeded for a certain reaction, phenomenon, result, or condition to occur or be manifested."
Imagine you have a bar that fills up whenever something embarrassing happens to you. A threshold is a line on that bar. When the bar fills up past the line, you become embarrassed.
So, if you have a low threshold, that means your line is marked very low. It only takes something small for you to get embarrassed.
If you had a high threshold, that means it would take a LOT for you to get embarrassed.
I hope that is what you needed!
Q: What does I'd be an embarrassment to take to another country let alone receive anyone here. I just didn't have that princess air about me. mean?
A: Ah! That makes more sense. Then your explanation is right. She thinks it would be embarrassing if the prince took her to another country when he goes to meet other important people.

"Receive anyone here" means when the prince greets important people from other places who come to visit him. That also would be embarrassing for her. Especially since she's not from a royal family.

Q: i got rid of embarrassment ?
is it okay ?
A: Lo siento mucho pero al menos en inglés no se entiende muy bien. Necesitaría todo lo que quieres decir o más bien, más info acerca de lo estás hablando.

I got rid of THE shame (así con THE sonaría más o menos)

I overcame the shame and embarrassment (sonaría mejor si de vdd estás hablando de algo que te ha pasado que te daba vergüenza)

Si quieres decir:
Ya no me da pena/vergüenza (en general)
sería algo como:
I don't feel embarrassed anymore.
I feel much more confident with....(lo que sea que te daba vergüenza)

Espero que te haya ayudado 😬☺

Pero en resumen, sí, 'I got rid of THE shame' está bien si es algo especifico que te daba vergüenza. Pero si hablas de vergüenza en general no suena tan bien.
