The value of any friendship is important and although friendships are important and should be embraced, it’s important to be around people who elevate our mood, people who want to be with us, not to bring us down.
We tend to conform to relationships, whether they’re right or not, because we’re afraid to be left without anyone. The same applies to family, also. We’re afraid others will see us as outcasts.
When it comes to friends they should elevate our mood, not bring our mood down and even if they can’t always do that. Spiritually it is difficult for us to grow in these kind of relationships.
