comment Differences between 「することはない」 and 「しなくてもいい」
That is certainly a possibility and it did cross my mind as being a cousin-expression of ~こと. I did check my answer with a native speaker, though, who confirmed that the nuance as I explained was more or less correct. Maybe etymologically it is like that, but maybe the meaning doesn't change too much.

If I'm wrong about any of this I invite any corrections via comment and not only downvoting.

comment 「君の声が聞こえなくて、逢えると信じる。」
What if there's context where like, two people are on the phone and someone's silence implies that they will be able to meet, so it becomes "because I can't hear your voice, I believe we will meet"?

comment Using 無理 to empathise
@IUnknown there aren't any other fixed expressions that I can think of at the moment, but it's certainly possible to empathize with someone and kind of agree that something is 無理, like if your friend's boss asked them to do a week's worth of work in 3 days you could call that 無理 as a form of empathy.

comment Usage of 整{ととの}える for asking for a trim when getting a hair cut
I've had hair people repeat back to me "普通のカット" when I have tried to explain, and it seems to get the point across pretty well, but I'm not sure about the nuance...
