    I have always thought one person can turn

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

    I don't think, I know.

    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...

    ...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.

    I know one has already.

    It didn't work out but I'm thankful that it happened and I wait with increasing impatience to find the next person who will be that great change for me.

    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...

    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...

    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.

    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.
