For every person we meet, we come into their lives at a single moment in time. As if jumping into a stream at a specific length of it.
We don’t know their past, sometimes not even their present. But we need to find out as much as possible in as short a time span as we can so that we can continue to be part of their future.
We meet people and judge them according to our own criteria. What we consider as acceptable behaviour and norms.
We want to discover the quirks and traits of other people to see if they match our own. If we can share a life with them. Our ultimate aim being to leave a mark on each other. To imprint a footprint on someone else’s life. Something that will push them to be better. To inspire them to act different. To be the greater version of themselves they can be.
Isn’t that the point after all? To meet people and make an impact on each other? To move forward together?
