If I happened to be in an uncomfortable situation where, for example, somebody would be speaking about something that I did and I was ashamed of it, could the following sentence be correct?

  • While the history progressed I felt like myself as If was shrinking more and more

Your sentence would need to change either to:

While the story progressed I felt myself shrinking more and more.


While the story progressed I felt as if I was shrinking more and more.

The "history" you are thinking of is the story being recounted by the teller, which made you feel like you were "shrinking" due to shame.
