There is an old saying, “you are the sum of your friends” and it’s true. If most of your friends workout, you are probably going to workout. If most do drugs, chances are you’ll be doing drugs.
Although I’ve heard this saying for many years and have always believed it, I have never experienced it first hand like I do with my own kids. All it takes is one new friend for me to notice a change at home.
Since we are all susceptible even as adults it’s something we need to watch out for and always remember what our own goals and drive is so it’s not diverted when we let our guard down.
