I think about the Butterfly 🦋 Effect a lot. What if one small decision that was made years ago completely altered the course of my life?
Could such a small moment in my timeline have changed my fate entirely?
What if in the 6th grade when Kayla and her crew of bullies cornered me I had fought back?
If I haven’t back down I wouldn’t have been humiliated in front of everyone. That’s a more favorable outcome, right? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
But what if I hadn’t felt that kind of humiliation?
What if that humiliation hadn’t turned into deep hurt?
What if that hurt never taught me self-love?
What if that self-love never taught me compassion?
What if that compassion had never led to action? What if that action never started Only Human? What if Only Human didn’t exist?
What if those 13 people who have claimed they didn’t take their own life because of Only Human had?
What if one of those humans contained a gift? What if that gift solved global warming? What then? ⠀⠀
One small moment has the power to alter your life and the lives of others around you.
