Seems every once in a while “someone” crosses our path. Whether by accident or design… “someone” will have either a positive or negative effect on your life. I would offer that the encounter with “someone” is highly individualized. For example, I could meet “someone” and their outlook, values and attitude could either depress or encourage me, affecting you in the exact opposite way.
“Someone” may offer an encouraging word or gesture, such as a gentle touch, a hug or a simple smile that could be the difference in “someone” else having the resolve to continue living. All of your actions have the potential to help or harm “someone”. Will we ever know? Probably not, but rest assured, every action causes a reaction.
I can almost guarantee that everyone has a certain “someone”. When asked if they can name “someone” who affected their life, almost immediately “someone” will come to mind.
