Am I an asshole/bad person?

I got fed up worrying about my stupid receding hairline and went for an all-out buzz cut. I only got the courage after a few beers n realising how stupid it was to keep worrying about it.

But because I'm a prideful idiot I couldn't just admit it. Then someone caught me off guard and before I knew it I'd said an old buddy of mine got ill and I wanted to show solidarity by going buzzed. What a totally effing retarded thing to say but it was the only thing that came into my head in that fraction of a second.

I gave a good amount of money to charity and recommended my friends to give money to charity too.

I feel like a total douchebag but some good charities got some money.

Kind of hate myself right now for not wanting to admit to being so vain.

To humanity: I am so incredibly sorry. Sorry. I hope someone out there can forgive me for being such a horrible horrible douche.

You turned an awkward situation into a good one. You didn't carry on the lie for ages, you said something and that was it. If you were a bad person you wouldn't be worried about it, you'd have collected charity money off everyone and gone and spent it on beer and women
We all say silly things on the spur of the moment when caught off guard, there's no lasting damage and like you say, some charities got some money so actually, saying you did it for that reason is a good thing.

I think you are being wayyy too harsh on yourself. There isn't a person here who hasn't been insecure about something in their lifetime. We've lied to avoid any sort of confrontation of the issue. I don't think I'm a terrible person for it although I would feel bad after lying to people.

We are all insecure about something. I deal with them by just getting on with my life and trying not to give in to such silly vain issues. It was hard work at first and yes, i felt very awkward and exposed, but I realized that people don't see these "faults" like we see them on ourselves. If we are confident, people won't even care to ask or even notice. If they do, then just say the truth and most people will leave it at that. That's what I've learned in my situation at least.

Sorry for blabbing on about it. You aren't alone though and I'm sure you are far from being a terrible person.
