Wednesday, January 29, 2014 Are you good at influencing other people?

~~~~~~~~

I usually do not try to influence other people, but I do have people tell me that I influenced them, so I may be unconsciously influencing other people. I don’t argue my points anymore, I just let it be.  Other people have the right to believe as they do.  It really saddens my heart, when I read my morning news and find that one of the homeless children/teen I had previously worked with, had been arrested for a crime.  I had so hoped that I had influenced these homeless children/teens in some way. Obviously, my influence works better if I do not try.
