I’m a very big proponent that you should surround yourself with like minded individuals who push you to do better, not the ones that just cheerlead you even when what you’re doing is wrong, but those who aren’t afraid to tell you the truth when no one else wants to. Those are your real friends.
I also believe in protecting your energy. If you are constantly around people who have a problem for every solution, are looking for for a pity party instead of a better way, then eventually you fall into that never ending trap.
Me, well, I continue to learn and grow as a person and will forever stay dodging negative people and haters.
