☆  impact   影響


The impact that something has on a situation, process, or person, is the effect it has on that thing or person. Other words with similar meanings are: effect, consequences, impression, and influence.

Thinking back to the three types of friendship earlier in the week, the friendships of goodness are probably the friendships that will have the most positive impact on your life. In fact, the impact doesn’t need to be positive, it could be negative. For example, when a friendship ends or changes, the impact can be hard to deal with, especially if you weren’t ready or prepared for the end or change. 

Can you think of a time when a friendship had a big impact on you or your life?
