Rather than going to a barber shop and paying $15 for a haircut every month I bought some clippers and cut my own hair. Last week I used them to cut my hair and wasn't sure how the trim on the neckline looked. I asked one person and they said it looked fine. I asked another and they said it looked like a home haircut, not straight, but jagged. Both people saw the same thing and have come to two different conclusions. How can I know if either is correct without having a second mirror to see for myself? I realized that it would be comforting for me to view myself with my own eyes. I would be able to form an opinion about my appearance that satisfied me, and trim my neckline to however I preferred. For my haircut a second mirror will remedy the situation easily enough, but what about perspectives on life? Does anyone else find that it can be confusing and sometimes frustrating not knowing what to believe is true? And do we all gain comfort from perspectives that are a second mirror image of our own?
