We never know who may be watching us. Someone somewhere out there may be looking for a leader to follow. Or they may be looking to us for clues on how to act or speak or behave. They may be looking to be inspired or comforted. They may be admiring us from afar.
Whatever the case, we are only ever doing two things: we are either building that person up, or we are letting that person down.
I know we are not personally responsible for another person’s happiness or lack thereof. That is entirely up to them. But we can serve as a guide and play a part in their growth, development, and direction.
Mahatma Gandhi humbly said, “My life is my message.”
