As a child the older folk around me would constantly echo this old saying “show me your company and I’ll tell you, who you are”
Now as a adult, I fully buy into that and consistently echo it to those around me. And if your thinking “she’s turned into one of those older folk” I’m still young thank you very much.
It’s good to surround ourselves with a diverse variety of people. It’s also good to ensure that you can learn from and enjoy the company of those you surround yourself with.
In turn they should feel the same about knowing you and time spent with you. So iron can sharpen iron.
