I was learning Halacha, and found that if you embarress someone publicly, you lose your share in olam haba. Is there anything you can do to repent? Does this sin go away on Yom Kippur?
There are SO many sins that cause you to lose your olam haba, it seems hardly anyone would get any.
So, what is that all about? I'm realy confused

You only use Olam habah if you do those aveiros willfully (and in many cases, frequently), and do not do Teshuvah. Someone who tries to do what hashem asks will not lose Olam habah. Embarassing someone in public is bein adam l'chavero and does not go away unless the victim forgives you. Someone who embarrasses someone in public should also try to undo as much of the damage as he or she can, by spreading a positive report, for example. Any additional punishments for a complete cleansing depend on the aveirah and situation. There are some aveiros where full teshuvah is not reached until death.

to achieve repentance for sins Bien Adom l'Chaveiro, one must also ask the victim's forgiveness
