I really enjoyed this article. You are correct about so called friends. We have to let go sometimes of people who drag us down with their negativity.
You cannot soar with eagles if you fly with turkeys.
My definition of a true friend is one that you can call at 3 a.m.
True friends are almost impossible to find. Much searching, so little time. In your life, you will have many acquaintances, but few real friends. Doesn’t mean you can’t be “friendly,” just means that everyone is not a good fit because of views, personality differences, etc.
Enjoy all that you can without hurting anyone’s feelings, but learn how to gradually pull away from those that are not a good fit.
