Home is where we were taught to develop our minds in the right way. We were taught to be wise, accept correction, learn to do what is right, and to be honest and fair. We gained understanding and learned to solve difficult problems.
We also learned that bad friends will ruin good habits. Our parents instilled a fear in us when they said to us – Show me your friends and I’ll tell you who you are. That was enough for us to carefully handpick our friends.
Now that we are adults, hopefully we have found the truth in what our parents have been forewarning us about – our friends are a true reflection of us.
A friend is someone we choose to spend a great deal of time with. They have a great influence on the way we think, the way we speak, the way we conduct ourselves, and the views we have on the issues of life.
The truth of the matter is, we are only as good as the company we keep.
When you are strong and confident…you never apologize for having high standards. Friends who honestly want to be part of your life will rise up to meet them.
We teach our friends how to treat us. So, it’s important not to lose our voice.
Good friends aren’t just close friends, they must also be wise friends.
Friends will inspire you or they will drain you – so pick them wisely.
