“Show me your friends, and I’ll show you your future.” I borrowed that, but it always made sense. Had I chosen better friends, my life would have been better. Had I put more effort into keeping track of the ones I made, I would be wealthy beyond compare through those relationships.
Solomon said, “He who walks with wise men will be wise, but the companion of fools will suffer harm.”
Take time and care picking out the right friends. Try to include yourself in a circle of people that you think are better than you. Otherwise, your company will pull you down.
And your best friend… the one you want to marry. Slow waaaaay down on that one.
