    Well I don't think they can :P I know they can!

    If you truly care about someone then they can influence you in many different ways :P They can either push you to better yourself or if they are a super depressing person they could even drag you down with them. Now me :P I have this amazing person in my life and everyday I try...

    Of course a person can change your life!

    I will only focus on the positive ones. I think role models have a way of making us better people. Best friends can make us feel good about ourselves when we need an emotional "pick me up". A significant other can make you feel desired, beautiful, and loved.

    ...if that person wants to!

    5 out of 10 times people gets delusional 'cause they fear the responsibility to make a change in somebody's life and rather give up on any positive vibe they can bring. and 4 out of 10 is about people completely uninsterested in other people's life (atleast they're coherent to...

    ...And Vice Versa

    The trick comes with being able to trust your own judgment in both finding and treasuring the person and times in life that can bring you immeasurable joy...along with the strength to hold at bay the ones that can rob it.

    Epic Battle For the last two weeks

    or so I've experienced first hand the "Epic Battle" between the will to live and the necessity of death. I've sat with my sister in law for a little over two weeks now and have seen a steady decline in her life. Having battled cancer for the last year she has come to the...

    Unless you live in a vacuum,

    meaningful encounters have some effect on one’s life. It may be a small change or it may send you off in an entirely different direction. My wife helped me focus my goals: big change. A student of mine said I was scary and I slightly softened my persona: small change.

    It seems every day I only crave it more.

    That feeling that only the few lucky ones can truly experience. I want to feel love. I want someone to tell me they love me and that they always will. I just don't want to be alone anymore. I want to feel complete, I want that small empty piece of me to be filled, and I know...

    As humans, I believe we walk through our lives

    and try to do the best we can. Are there good and bad people in this world? Absolutely. I think that perception is reality in a lot of cases. When you meet someone who challenges you and makes you think, it causes you pause. I can't tell you how often I've come across someone...

    Saints and comedians,

    politicians and teachers. A person says something which alters your perceptions, your countenance and your habits. Fundamentals, morals, attitudes and principles. Sports personalities, scientists, movie stars, and soldiers.

    A person can definitely change your life,

    there is no doubt about that. Everyone that comes into your life changes it. I think that we learn something about ourselves from everyone who comes into our lives. If the person brings negativity, we can use those experiences to shape our reactions and strengthen ourselves to...

    My life was changed by a woman I casually met

    at a very hard time in my life. She simply offered to line my shelves at my new home for me when she heard I was having a hard time. I know it sounds like a small thing but it truly was life changing. Renewed my hope and filled my heart back up. And my shelves look beautiful too...

    someone's life around or a simple gesture can make someone's day. Its the small things in life that are the biggest rewards.

    A very, very good friend changed my life two

    years ago. Prior to getting involved with him I was a very different person. I was always trying to be invisible , wearing baggy oversized clothes, my head in a book, I'd go out of my way to be alone. I didn't talk to anyone about myself, my hopes, dreams, problems. He picked...

    if I didn't meet the exs I've had then I most likely wouldn't be so hard on myself or feel as out of place around people, I definitely know I wouldn't have the experience of abuse if it wasn't for them. so when someone says 'one person can't make a difference' slap them in the...
