Relationships molded us and drove the changes. Thinking of who “made an impression”, who help mold you, it was probably a parent, a teacher, a coach, a guide. It wasn’t an organization seeking a measurable outcome or metrics. it wasn’t a person looking to create a system to scale. It was just a person doing something intrinsically good – making you feel known, cared for, trusted, and unconditionally loved -without presuming to know how your relationship would alter the trajectory of both lives.
we are defined by moments of obligation, vulnerability, and surrender
