It's good to read people when they're vulnerable. It's like you're peering around the corner of their kitchen, warm and glowing. You're a part of whatever they're a part of. And you can have compassion, and empathy for their situation. I guess that's why reading makes you a better person. Or why writing makes you the same.
You have to go to those places.
But they don't have to be dreary corners of the heart; they don't have to be anguish filled letters to the void. Those places can be the little lines next to your eyes when you smile. Or the warm press of a finger into your palm, from a friend, or a loved one.
They just have to be authentic.
