As a child, we don’t have a saying with whom we will spend our time. When our parents told us we will go out, we would go out, when they told us we will meet these children, we meet them and so on.
When we become adults, and start living independently, you might think we would make better decisions, but this is rarely the case. We become children of the habits. If we were used to meeting nice people, we would become nicer. If we meet the wrong kind of people, we become like them.
It is hard to start from the beginning. But it is important as an adult to create an environment that serves you and to do that with a conscious decision.
Otherwise, you risk living your life miserably.
Whenever you feel demotivated, look at how you spend your time and with whom. Make the change, see if it serves you or not and move on.
