Truth About Friendship

The truth about friendship is this: We learn more from our friends than we ever will from books. Sooner or later, our standards come to rest with the standards of our friends. Nothing influences us more than our peer group. The people you surround yourself will tell me something about who you are or something about who you will shortly become.

The people we surround ourselves with either raise or lower our standards. They either help us to become the-better-version-of-ourselves or encourage us to become lesser version of ourselves. We become like our friends. No man becomes great on his own. No woman becomes great on her own. The people around them help to make them great. We all need people in our lives who raise our standards, remind us of our essential purpose, and challenge us to become the-best-version-of-ourselves. [Kelly, The Rhythm of Life]
