But What Reason?

people come and go in ur lives constantly, everyday.
some just in passing.
maybe a shared smile when ya hold a door, or a mutual rolling of the eyes standing i a line.

some people hang around for awhile.
maybe ya go out a few times, or maybe its someone who sits in on ya card game every now and then.

so people just stay.
you know who they are.

but here is the thing...
its not always about you. or me.
wht if i hold the door for a woman trying to wrangle 3 kids nd she just needed that tiny act of kindness to help keep her sane for a few more minutes.
or that person in line just need to know that there is someone else in the world who feels the same way about something, even as small as a slow cashier.

maybe that person ya went out with needed the mental boost of bein wanted by someone.
or ya poker buddy needed a place to just be a dude for awhile.

its not always about Us and what other people can do for Us.
we all should consider how we impact all the people that come into our lives everyday.

I do agree with you that what we do for others can be crucially important. Everything we do will atleast send out ripples that affect others. We never know how even a small comment to someone else may be the lift they need to go on for the day.
