When I was younger, I was heavily influenced by my surroundings. I am happy that today I am able to be my most authentic self.

Two women sit in dark red dresses at the small French restaurant where the roses grow in pots and the violin music is sharp and whining. They attempt to influence one another with their words, with their mantras, with their spells. One of them wields the power of academics, while the other simply has the siren’s tongue. She practically sings as she speaks, and every poor sailor on the shore swims to her.

My mother was the greatest influence of my life. She changed how I approached problems, how I thought about people, how I spoke, dressed, believed.
But sometimes, I wonder if what I ended up becoming was because of her as well.

The one things which can change our life, correct influence can make or break us.

i just thought a lot about this word which isn’t the point of the is exercise but all i came up with was that this word on it’s own is influential just by being the word influence. That probably doesn’t make any sense.

A kinder form of manipulation; the kind that ends up being for your own good. Somewhere, under stacks of books or in a box, there is a list; it details all the ways I’ve changed. The reasons are not there; they are more rememberable than the things changed, and do not need to be written down. Accomplishments, goals. The good kind of manipulation. It was selfish, this list. To let it be written when there are factors I still haven’t put into words that darken my motivations, my thoughts, and I wonder if even such things can be explained, or have I reached the limit of verbal expenditure, the limit of words being understood? Afraid of the answer, the deepest layer recently rediscovered lies like a vault in a murky ocean bottom, its darkness leaking from the cracks, as it continues to manipulate me, manipulate you, manipulate change. The bad kind of manipulation. Is all my skin and bones just a vessel for this? The deeper I look, the more grotesque the scene is, until there is nothing resembling a human being at all.

In your hands
Such enormous potential
Will it become a weapon you wield
Or transformed into a tool to build
You choose how to use this power
Dominate or direct
Pressure or promote
Will you be master or guide
The scale can tip either way
Our heart will determine the sway

Where do i draw my influence to live?
Strange question…Yeah..Might be..But everydays battles won and lost gives me a perspective, it influences my life.I may do good or bad but it will influence my day.

I trust him.
I know he is telling the truth.
You try to make me think,
That he is toxic.
I don’t see it the way you do.
I see how he is changing.
I see that he doesn’t want to lose me.
You convince me that he has cheated,
Yet I know he hasn’t.
You tell me to break up with him.
You say he treats me like shit.
You don’t see the persistence in his eyes.
You don’t see the pain he feels.
I can feel the connection we have.
A bond that can’t be broken,
Just because of spite.

Influence. Was beeinflusst mich? Was davon will ich und was will ich nicht? Was beeinflusst mich, ohne dass ich es merke? Vielleicht ist die Welt ganz anders, als ich denke. Vielleicht sind da irgendwelche Realitätswolken, die mich das Leben so oder so wahrnehmen lassen, die mich diese oder jene Entscheidung treffen lassen, ohne dass es mir bewusst ist, dass das gar nicht meine Entscheidungen sind, sondern die von jemand oder etwas anderem.

Was prägt uns?
Was macht uns –
zu dem was wir sind?
Sind es unsere Gene?
Sind es unsere Erfahrungen?
Haben wir eine Wahl?
Oder ist alles bereits geschrieben?

It was funny to see her flop around this way-
No aim, No direction, bobbing all around.
No drugs, No alcohol.No deeper meaning or need of a purpose.
This was the influence of Art.
By Anita URL on 03.22.2017
Influence can make the difference between just living and having purpose to live. When you are living, you feel as if certain choices may not matter. When you are being influenced, your perspective changes. When you are influencing others, your purpose changes. It makes the difference.

Everyone has an influence. Some are bad. Some are good. However, those you surround yourself with will influence you. Chose wisely to crave you own path.

“Do it,” she said.
He toed the edge of the bridge carefully. “I will,” he said. “But it’s not the best idea.”
“Hush,” she said. “When have I steered your wrong?”

the influence of that very first smile
that dials love onto your heart
can come from the beloved little clone of yours
or the gallop of the horse of your heart’s course
remorse follows many influenftials
the sun still rises even though
it knows that there will be

I decide I’m tired of being the fat kid, so I scrap the sugary cereals and frozen burritos, throw away the sodas, and jog every single day until I can look at myself in the mirror. That gave me my health.
I decide I’m bored of sitting around, and waiting for things to happen – so I make them happen. I take initiative, put an effort into my education, put every minute of my time to use, and justify my hobby through hard work. That gave me my determination.
I decide that I’m sick of yielding to embarrassment, and learn to take care of myself, so that I can care for others. I am not afraid of my opinions, and assert them, but when wrong, I take the embarrassment, and direct it into being right. That gave me my humility.
I decide that I have all I need – my health, my determination, and my humility, and a set a path forward for success. A council of a thousand voices forged into one, pathos in legion, a proverbial blade I use to cut my path forward – but still, I stumble, and fall, and bleed.
I have my health, but I run out of breath. I have my determination, but I my body won’t yield to my mind. I have my humility, but the weight responsibility numbs my legs.
At the bottom of the path, I look up and I see you, one step ahead, picking yourself up and moving forward through taller, thicker reeds – and that…that gave me my heart.

Nobody has the power to influence you if your opinion about matters is firm. Weak is influenced. Strong people sail their boat well in time.

The influence that you’ve had on me is incredible. Joshua, I can’t believe it. My life has changed so much I just – wait don’t let me talk the whole time. I want to hear what you have to say. Josh? Joshua? Are you there? Josh ? Have you fallen asleep again? Josh I can’t believe you’re doing this again, this is so fucking like you, I can’t believe it. Typical. Bloody typical, Josh

She knew that she needed to create something new, something original. But every time she tried, she felt herself drawn to ideas and things she already knew.

When asked to write about one’s influences, where do you begin? Music, movies, books? Other people? Parents? Booze? Drugs? Errant bits of fluff that look like spaceships blowing across the tile floor as you’re taking a shit?
That last one probably counts for my space novel – it’s pretty crappy.

A lot of people and things can influence you. Your parents, your friends, teachers, political figures, artists, etc. What matters is that you sort out the good influences from the bad. Take the good influence and use it in your life and filter out what could be the negative influences.

Influence is a wierd word sometimes. Who is influencing who? Is it good or bad? I don’t know much about it though.

You have no idea how much the little things you did to me impact me every day. You’ll never get to see either, because you’re gone … you can’t lay eyes on me and I still wonder why I ever laid eyes on you…

I love you
I hate you
you are poison in my veins
you are the blood coursing through my heart
I can’t live without you
you are killing me
By Roryonfire on 03.22.2017
i thought i’d be a good enough influence
i thought all that i could do well would rub off on you
i figured when we started becoming each other, you’d take the best parts of me
i thought our minds would get on the same track
walk at the same pace
hum to the same tune
but we’re not there yet
By celeste cervantes URL on 03.22.2017
I gave it away. The token I had that it was real, that anything at all had happened, that it wasn’t all just a dream. I was going to break it that night, but I had it taken from me while I was in the midst of tears. I let her have it. I gave it away, but I was under the influence. And now I want it back.
By Maddy on 03.22.2017
What is the influence of failure,
The influence of fear?
For fear destroys
And failure creates wisdom.
In this manner we do not fear failure.
Failure is merely an experience
Of what does not work.
And how can we know what does work,
If we don’t experience failure?
