We all have an impact on our environment constantly in ways we usually don't realize—unless we're high enough to stop and think about it. But sometimes, our small actions can trigger a series of reactions that ultimately have major consequences. It's called the "butterfly effect" and, unlike a butterfly, it's not always pretty.
1.) From SIFremi:
Me spotting a weird light outside my window led to me becoming homeless a couple years later
Saw a weird light outside our house one night -> told mom -> it turned out to be my dad calling his mistress -> divorce -> mom gets sole custody -> some time passes -> my mom is ready to move on and reconnects with an old boyfriend -> they decide to go on a trip together -> he and my mom end up in a car accident -> she dies -> I'm just about to turn 18 so I can't go into foster care and my extended family takes her shit and ditches me -> homeless
It's really weird to think of it this way,,, I do wonder what would have happened to me, or to her, if something in there had gone differently.
