“Your closet friends reflect you, don’t be that guy”. – Justin A. Starks
Growing up we meet people. We meet people who we were once close friends with and even treated them like if they were family. Over the years we part ways and some friends still remain in ones life because of the memories they have shared . Can’t speak the same for most, that’s why they are not around no more.
Some say people come and go for a reason. Which is true to some extent, but not entirely true. People come and go because of our desire, passion, and will to succeed. Our goals push us towards new crowds in spite that these new people have the same mindset as us. If you have a goal, I honestly say you should be surrounded by the ones who could help you reach your full potential, not waist your knowledge.
Hanging out with “Tommy and the Boys on the Block” who like going too prison & smoke weed is not going to help you any shape or form. Not saying all pot smokers are bad, but the ones who smoke and don’t do anything with their lives are awful for your wellbeing, if you are one your way to become somebody successful. It’s time to listen to mama when she told you since a kid that every one isn’t your friend or family. If your mama never told you then you have to really deviate who your true friends are.
It’s really a time and place for everything and cleaning out your closet isn’t a bad idea at all. Stop giving your time to people who isn’t doing nothing with their time. Eventually their wasted time become your new problems. You have to understand most people can’t keep up with your pace and have to be left behind. Old friends will feel a certain way but forget them if they don’t understand you are on the path of success. It doesn’t make any sense at all to hang around and stay!
Question: Have you ever had a friend that wasn’t good for you? What did you do?
