We need a connection but the right connection and the best connection is important. These people that we choose to spend the most time with is who help shape who we are how we think and how far we are willing to go.
That is because everybody has influence on other people. The problem is that often that influence isn’t in the direction we want to go. Our friends if not the best will hold you back and keep you comfortable. your friends affect your Beliefs, attitudes and behavior.
