My mother always used to say, "you are the company you keep, so choose your friends well" as I was growing up, always concerned about who my friends were and why I chose them. It's true that we pick up the qualities and traits of the people we surround ourselves with most. We start to become a little more like them and they become a little more like us, until we meet (not always in the middle). Do you like the person you are transforming into? Do you like the person you become when you are with your friends? How do they make you feel?
