“Birds of a feather flock together”
Friends are the biggest influence in our lives, even more than family.
If you don’t believe me, look at many school reports for badly behaved children. They will be full of things like:
He is a good person, he’s just in the wrong crowd.,,,,
She has potential but her choice of friendship groups is questionable….
Tom is a negative influence on him…
And it is important to realise this if you want to make your life better – because essentially, you are, who your friends are.
