Too many times I’ve seen people choose friends for all the wrong reasons, when more importantly, they should be focusing their energy on people who make them feel good.
We all know the saying, â€œ that you canâ€™t choose your familyâ€ â€“ thatâ€™s so true. So, make sure youâ€™re smart and choose friends who are worthy of you valuable time and attention. I know it sounds a bit harsh, but you cannot keep every friend you have ever made. In a society like today, where there are so many distractions, no one has the time and energy for that. If you donâ€™t consciously choose which relationship to focus your time on, youâ€™ll eventually spread yourself too thin and youâ€™ll have less to give to those who deserve your friendship most.
Do not be fooled by glamour, a personâ€™s behavior is much more important that their word or how they represent themselves. Surround yourself with people who reflect the person you want to be. Choose friends you are proud to know, people you admire, who love and respect you for the person you are. And it doesnâ€™t matter at what stage these friends are in their lives, whether theyâ€™ve hold a PhD, or work as a public servant. The most important thing these people make you day brighter, simply by being in it.
