It’s touching. All these subtle things that happened in our lives, little did the person know that he/she left an impact to others lives. Little did we know that we may have left impact in others lives too. So it’s always good to be good & spread more positivity.

An extraordinarily selfish and solipsistic man. That poor baby, infant, child, adolescent, adult, old person. Created to relieve his narcissistic urges.
