“Go to a coffee shop. Sit by the bar with the glass windows and look out. Look at all the people running to catch a train. All the girls with one too many shopping bags. All the couples too in love to care. Then you’ll see it – a bit of yourself in everyone. And somehow, sitting alone in a coffee shop had never felt so good.”

— T.W. (via the-perfect-aesthetic)

There’s a bit of yourself in everyone. We already automatically see the parts of ourselves we don’t like in other people. That’s called “they’re annoying.”

Taking time to find the good parts of us in other people? Find a place, a coffee shop window will do, and learn to see that too.

It’s so worth the effort.
