Just sayin'

Who are you keeping close to you?

A friend of mine recently told me that we are a mix of the five people we hang around the most…. I look around and feel pretty good about what I am becoming by the people I am with most of the time.

The more isolated and disconnected we are, the more shattered and distorted our self-identity. We are not healthy when we are alone. We find ourselves when we connect to others. Without community we don’t know who we are…

When we live outside of healthy community, we not only lose others. We lose ourselves…Who we understand ourselves to be is dramatically affected for better or worse by those we hold closest to us.

Connect consistently with people who call you to be the person you can be, should and will be.
