There are a couple of ways the title of this post could be interpreted. One being how the people in your life can have a positive effect on you, and the second being how the people in your life can have a negative effect on you. Either way, those people you surround yourself with will have an impact on who you are as a person.
As I have gotten older, its more and more important to me that I surround myself with good quality people. When I was younger it was all about how popular you are, how many friends I you had. And you slowly realise thats not important. The saying “Quality over quantity” comes in perfectly here. I’d rather have a few great friends than a bunch of mediocre ones.
“We Become Those We Surround Ourselves With“
Whether you believe it or not, you eventually become those you surround yourself with. If you surround yourself with bad people, who make questionable decisions. You will in turn, form into that type of person if you aren’t careful. Its happened to me before, and I was that person that insisted that it would never happen to.

Find people you can learn and grow from. Friendships should build you up and make you stronger and help you to grow as a person. The same with relationships too.
I’m so thankful for new and old friendships. Even for the ones I don’t speak with anymore. People come into our lives for a purpose. Even if it’s only for a small season in life, we can learn from each other.
Do you struggle with finding good people to have in your life? What are your friendships like?
A little bit of a different post for me, but something that was on my heart. I hope you consider yourself and your own growth when having relationships and friendships with people. Are they helping you grow into a better person? Are they looking out for you and your best interests? Those are the questions we should be asking ourselves.
See you in the next one, Olivia x
