I am a firm believer in the theory known as Six Degrees of Separation. If you haven’t heard of it, here’s a quick run-down. The theory says that basically everyone knows everyone through some form of connection. For instance, you know someone in China, because somewhere within six degrees of connections there falls that person. You are always the first degree, and somewhere within the next five is that other individual. This is why we must watch what we say and how we act when we are not in the comfort of our own homes. You never really know how your words or actions could impact your life later on.
I can’t tell you how many times someone has said something to me and I say to them, “yeah, I know.” Baffled by my response I have to explain them that either the person that they said this to knows me or someone around them does through the six degrees of separation. I do my best to not make judgment calls based on things that I hear from other people, but I understand that not everyone is that way. It is best to hear information from the source.
You must remember that somethings, no matter who you say them to, will make their way around. These things could in fact make or break a career, end a relationship, or do the complete opposite. You are the driving your life, but sometimes the other drivers make you miss your exit.
Now this isn’t a post to tell you to live your life so carefully that you don’t experience anything. Trust me that would be extremely boring, and no one wants that. Enjoy yourself to the best of your ability, but watch yourself!
Have a good one!
