We are all influenced by one thing or another. These influences are what mold us. You know those anti drug commercials "Be Above the Influence"? Is it even possible to overcome an influence in your life when in reality it already has influenced you in a way? Is being influenced a choice or just something you will have to learn to control. There's positive influences and negative ones. If you arent being influenced by something positive does that mean your life is in the negative? The way we let things influence us can help change the daily life of an average person. Lets take Music as an example. If you listen to a certain type of music it'll influence your mood in a way other than what a different music genre will. Are the change of influences as important as changing anything else in your life?
