Looking back, I seem to come into many people’s lives at a time when they’re ready for a big change. My influence has an impact (either positive or negative) which catalyses these changes in them, and then soon after the change is in motion, our paths diverge. I’m used to it now, and have come to accept the part I play in helping them get from where they are to where they’re (maybe unconsciously) trying to be (even when I’m left looking like the bad guy). Many friends have come and gone on to the next place in their journey. Few have stayed, and journeyed by my side.
This influence goes both ways. I have also grown from my time with some of these people (maybe even all of them).
I kinda feel like The Littlest Hobo. Ever get that?
