We must be careful what influence we allow others to have on our thinking.
It is easy to allow the wrong people to drag us down.
For this reason, it is imperative that we associate with people who add value to our lives, who help us to think and behave with more integrity, and for whom we do the same.
The best relationships are exchanges.
They are not always equal exchanges, but there is a great amount of back and forth with regards to ideas, attitudes, and perspective, and, ideally, this exchange lifts everyone involved up instead of dragging them down.
We are what we consume and this includes other people’s energy.
We have to protect ourselves against that which is harmful and embrace that which brings more light, love, and positivity into our lives.
