In reality, nobody cares at all.

Someone wrote…

I’ve come to realise that I’m way more paranoid about people talking about my appearance than the actual occurrence of people talking about my appearance. My Psych lecturer did say once that people are so self-conscious and scared that others on the street are looking at them and judging them, but in reality, nobody cares at all.

I’ve found that once we get past those initial awkward moments of “uhm, I’m a Miss, not a Sir,” people recover really quickly and we can only move forward from there.

What’s your experience?

And what are you thinking about gender right now?
