We Become Like the People We’re Around

Animals adapt to their environment – even over the ages changing their appearance so as to protect themselves from other predators.

But humans also become like the people in our lives.

If they are less ethical, it challenges our ethics.

If they are rude, we adapt and sometimes change our tolerance to rudeness.

If they cheat, we may not become cheaters but we will spend some effort to resist the outside pressures exerted by others.

Less obsession with making friends.

Or collecting friends on social media.

More attention to who we want as friends.

Having people who share the values that define us in our lives is being a good friend to them and to yourself.
