There are times when you think you make a difference. There are times when you realize that you can make a difference. There are also time you think that you will never make a difference. And there are also time when you _KNOW_ that you did make a difference.
Those times when you actually _KNOW_ you made a difference can really affect the way you think and live your life. Now in this, I am assuming that the difference made is a good one, but that is not always the case. Even with that said, those times you _KNOW_ will affect your life.
I feel that, even with different religious/moral beliefs, it is one of our jobs to help those we meet on the life journey. When you actually see the difference you make, it can be a kick in the pants.
Yes, I recently felt that type of situation. It made me feel good and insignificant at the same time. It was also just a little frightening. There is always the possibility that my own little efforts will not help, or worse they will injure. But, those times that have occurred, when I _KNEW_ I helped, are enough to keep me in the game.
Those little kicks in the backside keep me on the right path.

Well, I’m glad something made you feel good, I’m sorry that it made you feel insignificant, and this post was so vague that I cannot offer further comment 😉
I think that realizing that we have made a positive difference in someone’s life… no matter how small… is one of the greatest feelings anyone can have. And hopefully those we help along the way feel a bit of that as well! A kick in the derriere is a good feeling at times.
Here’s hoping your little intervention serves to help those involved!
Here’s to positive differences we can make. As for the negative ones, God forgive us failing in our weakness.
