Haircuts and hairlines

I was getting a haircut the other day. The kind lady showed me the finished cut and asked me if it looked good. I thought it looked great.

Seeing myself in the mirror, I half-joked about my receding hairline. To this, she said – “You know that only you notice it right? Nobody cares.”

She reminded me of a powerful truth that day – we all overestimate how often others think about us.
