Illusion of Transparency

A comforting thought for many.

“The gap between our subjective experience and what other peoplepick up on is known as the illusion of transparency. The reality is that other people pay much less attention to you than you think.  Accept that other people don’t usually know what you’re thinking and feeling. If you want someone to know your mental state, you need to tell them in the clearest terms possible.”
