You weren’t aware that you were radiating something that was being absorbed by those with whom you were associating.
That makes it important for you to remember that every person wields an influence whether for good or for evil. It is not just what he/she says or what he/she does. Every person radiates an atmosphere which effects every other person.
No one can escape for a moment from this radiation of his/her character which provides the strengthening or weakening of others.
If you stay humble and never have anything about yourself that is any kind of negative influence, you can proudly say you spread it.
