It’s wonderful to have friends, especially those who encourage us to be the best that we can be. However, it’s also important to remember that we tend to emulate the people we are around the most. If we’ve fallen into a pessimistic, negative or downbeat group, then perhaps we need to adjust our friendships, especially if we want to move on to happier horizons.
Friendships are incredibly important. Therefore:
Choose friends wisely.
If you truly want to be happy, my experience is to choose friends that encourage and support you, have an optimistic nature and like you for who you are and who you are becoming. Consider the direction you are going and the direction you want to go, and then hang around and befriend people that are as you would like to become. As they say, if you want to be happy, surround yourself with happy people, because they will rub off on you!

Be careful the environment you choose for it will shape you; be careful the friends you choose for you will become like them. ~W. Clement Stone
Although this eBook is written for people with ADHD, the fundamentals I believe are helpful for just about anyone.
