I have this sentence that I can't figure out.

I knew that If the pain won’t break me, embarrassment might will.

Or:

I knew that If the pain wouldn't break me, embarrassment might would.

What's the right way to write it?

Thank you.

  1. You need to use 'wouldn't' (instead of won't = will not) if you are a speaking about a future possibility in the past (relatively to 'knew').

  2. You can't combine 2 modal verbs in the end (might + will), use just 'might'.

I knew that if the pain wouldn't break me, embarrassment might (do it).
