Turn the negative into positive
Find another side of every fault you find with people on the street. Instead of scrunching your nose at a teenager’s over-the-top outfit, admire that person’s confidence in being able to pull it off. Rather than hating the loud guffaw of the man a table over, tell yourself how sweet it is that he’s having so much fun with his friends.
