I am a very optimistic person, and I do believe in the infinite human potential. But some people will never achieve their potential, because of past trauma which prevents them from seeing what they can achieve, laziness or something else.
To make the things even worse, those people will drag you down if they become part of your circle.
Choose wisely with whom you want to spend time with, because we are social creatures and we are defined by our parents, friends and partners.
We can’t choose our parents, but everything else is only in our control.
