What have you done that has had a positive impact on another person's life?
Clipped a mate around the ear for making stupid faces in public
this year, for Valentine's day, i decided to do something special.
I know this guy in the grade below me. he isn't exactly the cutest guy, infact, he's far from it. he's what most people would call a loser. I call him one, too. He's pretty, geeky, stupid, ugly. But he's human, he has feelings. Anyways, he always falls in love with girls that are beyond out of his league. Like, different universe. At the moment, he's in love with this girl named Brigett. she, too, is in 7th grade, but unlike Nick, she has guys DROOLING over her that are around 18. She could pass for 18. She's gorgeous, smart, friendly, everything. But when Nick gave her a present for xmas, she didn't even say thanks. He's just a nice guy.
So one night i sat down to write poems for the Valentine's i was going to give out this year, and thought of him. I decided to make one for him and put it in his locker from his 'secret' admirer. I wrote him a poem and put it in his locker on a red heart. I'm not sure if he got it, but I know that if i'd have gotten a valentine like that, i'd have felt pretty special. I can only hope my valentine had the same effect.
Saved the life of a drowning child.
Taught them how to feed into temptation
I gave a homeless guy $1.52 some years go. I'd like to think
that he invested it and became super-wealthy.
I taught someone to earn their own bread.
Was the one the person could always count on.
A long time ago, A canvas fence fell on someone, in the middle of a storm and i rushed there and pulled it up and shouted at him to get out. And he probably could have got out on his own, without me helping. But for a 15 year old kid, I felt like superman.
That just shows that you don't need to do really dramatic things to feel like a hero. Even simple things done with passion can be heroic.
I reached out, and helped them up, listened to them, and watched them go from there.
I love and am being loved by the most amazing person in the world, my girlfriend.
Some may not agree with this, others may. No offense to anyone. I told someone how much God loves them, and wants them to be His child.
Been the one to always ask how someone elses day was, just incase they might need someone to talk to.
I work at an IHOP restaurant as a waiter. There are about 4 servers on duty each night, each assigned to his/her own station. During my shift, I always do all the sidework (stocking, cleaning, whatever chores need be done), regardless of station. Everyone else is so strict about sticking to their own stations that they're always shocked when they see I've helped them out. And I'm not being immodest or anything - I know this is incredibly trite compared to real acts of heroism and philanthropogy - but I do this all the time, whenever I'm there, and my co-workers never stop appreciating it. The thing is, I WANT to do it. I'm not just trying to feed on their praise. It's just...neat...that I can make these people's jobs easier on them. I mean, why not?
I had a friend...well, I still have the same friend, but he's changed alot...anyways, he used to be really lazy, kind of a punk, and depressed.
One day, I suggested he start taking tae kwon do (martial arts). He surprised me by taking me up on the offer, but he would only do it if I did. So I started. We're both getting benefits from the mental and physical workout, but I think he's changed more. Maybe. Who knows.
i wrote a poem for my friend when she told me she tried to kill herself not too long ago ...
Well, to be honest, i would like to think that i make impacts on everyones life that i enter. I believe in bringing cheer to my friends lives. They are always there for me when i need a shoulder to cry on...one friend in particular...and i would say that my impact on them is that i make it known that i am always here for them. However, recently, a guy from the camp i use to attend started calling me, talking about suicide, and i listened while he poured out his sorrows. I tried my best to advise him, and i'm hoping that what i have shared will help him realize that death is not the way.
I let her go. She doesn't even know this.
made one of her dreams come true, while letting go one of mine.
I smiled, I listened. For mortal men there is not much else that can be done in this life.
i was a friend....
Hated many, liked some, loved one.
When I left my last girlfriend,
Told someone the truth.
Words. I try to give everyone I come in contact with words, so they too can see how wonderful they are and how important words are in everyones life. How no matter what anyone says ...words can change the world, and the way you live. Yea, I have given people words. Each and every single day.
This one time on an ambulance call, we took in a young girl who tried to kill herself. She was really quiet but looked scared, so as we were driving to the hospital I took her hand and held it. She looked at me and just broke down. I wound up sitting on the stretcher and holding her while she sobbed the whole way in to the hospital. When we dropped her off in her room she didn't want me to leave, she wanted me to stay and hold her hand. I went out to the ER desk and got one of the stuffed bears they give to kids . . . I brought it back to her room, hugged it tightly, and gave it to her. I told her whenever she felt alone to hug the bear and in a way, I would hug her back. I like to think that the simple gesture I made helped her on her road to recovery.
I've made someone fall in love
ive listened .. when my ears didnt feel like hearing the voice ive talked when my words werent coming out right and i smiled when inside the smile was upside down . .. .
I've listened, and I've tried to give advice. That's all I can do... and when that didn't work, I let her go.
I once said to someone, "Everything ends up okay in the end. If its not okay, its not the end".
It saved that person from taking away their own life. Were best friends now ;)
I once visited a chatroom, when someone entered and left about 15sec. later. I got curios and checked the ID-card. It was very..suicidal, all in all. So I wrote an email. I listened, I gave advice, but most important of all:
I destroyed her illusion that noone in the world cared if she lived or died.
She never understood why I did.
I only regret that I lost contact with her about 3 month ago.
There is no such thing as "someone elseīs problem" when they canīt handle it themselves.
Noone breaks down just for fun.
I made myself fall in love with someone who thought the world of me.
Now he's happy, and I'm in confusion.
