Can One Person Make a Difference?
What a person can do in our life? What could be the effect of a person on our mind and mood? What can we do because of just one person? Can one person make a difference? These are the questions that suddenly popped up in my head, and then I tried to find the answers to these questions.
After thinking for a while, I found answers to my questions and I concluded that a person can affect our lives in many ways. A person can make us sad or happy, a person can make us believe in miracles or he can make us a disbeliever, a person can make us strong or weak, a person can change our mind and mood in a very short time, a person can change our point of view about something, a person can make us live our life or he can make us end our life, a person can change us either positively or negatively. It means that the nature of a person can affect not only him but also the people who are linked with him.
I felt excited that I found answers to my questions but then some more questions came to my mind and that is: WHY? Why a person can change us so much? Why do we allow ourselves to be affected by just one person? Well, because we make that person the top priority that we love to be dependent on him and follow him. Isn’t it a bad thing that we are depending on someone that much? Isn’t it a bad thing that we are making ourselves someone’s puppet? Isn’t it wrong that we are following someone even when he is doing wrong or bad?
I think the answers to these questions are maybe YES or maybe NOT. Taking help of someone is not bad but being dependant on someone not only for big problems or issues but also for minor things or problems is bad, it is not good that we can solve a problem on our own but still being dependant on that person. Following someone is also not wrong if he is on the right path but it’s bad when he is doing wrong and we know he is wrong and we still follow him blindly, it’s bad that we are making ourselves bad by following or trusting the wrong one. Learning something from someone is not bad but being someone’s blind puppet is wrong.
We don’t like to be called a puppet of someone wrong, especially when everyone knows his nature, even that’s exactly what we are becoming. By following the wrong one, we are allowing someone to take control of our lives; we are allowing someone to make us bad and bad day by day.
Learning something from a good person and learning something from a bad person are totally different things. When a person is trying to make us our best selves, when he is trying to correct us then we should trust him and we should follow him, following someone in that sense is not wrong, it’s actually a very good thing that we are helping ourselves by taking help from another person. In this way, we can make our life beautiful. So try to be with a good person and try to make yourself better not worst and be the best version of yourself.
