The best thing you have to do for yourself is to choose whom you associate with wisely. Your friends can make or mar your life. They can fix or destroy you. They can influence how far you go in life if you aren’t watchful and careful about the bad ones.
When you surround yourself with people who love you, care about you and want you to succeed, you will enjoy life better. But if you hang around people who constantly remind you of your past failures, deficiencies and your shortcomings, you’ll have a tough time making rapid progress in your life. I call them life vampires.
You can get stuck and frustrated being around them. Step out today and make friends with people who support you, and not those reminding you about your past.
After all you are stepping into the future not your past.
