We have fleeting moments in our existence. They are like grains of sand, slipping by quickly, transient. In these moments, we meet people. These individuals may be friend or nemesis, or merely someone who says something meaningful at the water cooler. How can only a few minutes out of the millions we have impact us so deeply? Such is life.
In life, people say things they mean in the moment, perfectly serious in that time. What we must understand is that it is okay to believe them. Though some people in our lives will not be lifelong players on our stage, it does not make their influence any less special. Whether it is one act or all, we are forever changed.
Such is life.
