I have noticed that the people around me have a lot of influence on my decisions, who I am, morals etc. and its fascinating how those people affect how we go about our lives and how much we are influenced by them. What to people think?

People around,
shape us,
whether it for good
or for bad
we can’t prevent
people from entering
our lives.

They may stick around
for a while,
or only a matter of minutes
but their
influence
makes a difference
on us.

Exposure
to people
can only be healthy,
but look at
yourself.
Watch your
own actions
and thoughts,

think of where
they came from
who, or what
they were in aid of
and do they
stem from another
being, a person

who you’ve met
along the way?
Were you dependent,
in some respect,
on them?
Its ok.

Can you step back
from this,
this life of yours
for one second.
What does
it look like?
Can you see
the chunks
that have been carved
out of you,
from the people
who stopped
along your way?

They may have stuck around
for a while
or have been gone in minutes,
but can you notice
that it’s the people
around,
that
make you
this shape.

We have them to thank
and them to hate.
We have them to love,
but we also have them
to carve
just like they have us.

People around,
shape us.

Awesome, it is said that it takes a community to raise a child,
encouragement is great and we all need to be equally rounded to succeed in life.
Thanks for sharing it.
