I can’t tell you the number of times that I have gone to the wrong car in the parking lot by mistake, thinking that it was mine when it wasn’t. I am always bemused when the car that I mistake as mine is a much less expensive model, causing me to question why I paid a premium price if it looks the same as others. But then I remember (rationalize?) that the interior, the ride and the longevity are worth it to me.

I think about this as it relates to people. Often people are judged by their outside appearance but it is really what is on the inside that creates the true value. We have no idea what is going on “under the hood” and we should refrain from making comparisons or evaluating worth based on only a fraction of the whole picture. What you see on the outside is not an indication of true value.
