Being Invisible Has It's Perks
I have few different thoughts after reading this article. One is that for some reason I never felt hugely visible when I was younger so losing that kind of attention (that I was aware of) - didn't phase me. But immediately contradicting myself - during the years of 18-40 my "flaws" were so visible to me that I thought they were so visible to others. So I did think people saw. Now - I care so much less if or what people notice when the see me. Wisdom or giving up? Wisdom.
