Do you choose your friends?

I do. I always believe in the saying: "Tell me who your friends are and I will tell you who you are". So I really choose friends that will have a positive influence on me. So I stay away from those who always have negative thoughts, because I don't wanna have negative thoughts as well. Let me know your thoughts on this...

i don't believe that saying, though that was stated by our country's national hero. if i remember correctly. it really is up to you if you're going to be steadfast in your beliefs. well, if you're someone who gets easily influenced, then really choose who your friends are. i do choose my friends. that is, just recently. not because i am afraid that i am going to be like that. it's just that there are some people who push, demand so much and i don't have much patience to deal with those persons.

I honestly dont believe in that "tell who your friends are blah blah.." I believe that everyone makes their own choices, meaning that you dont get influenced by others, not necesarely your friends, but anyone, eg: family, boyfriends, girlfriends, etc... And i also believe that everyone chooses their friends. I mean, you have to like the person in oorder to be friends with, right? So yes I do choose my friends, I only have 2 very close ones, the rest are just like people I know. And yes I believe that having positive people in your life some how influence you unconsiously if you think about it. I dont mean you get directly influenced, like i said, you make your own decesions, but somehow it does have an affect on you if you choose bad over good people in your life.

Not necessarily at all times, but when it comes to choosing the one who would be someone you can be close friend with I think it is important to take extra caution, you know, I mean these days there are some people who are opportunists or really really bad attitude stuff like that. And sometimes there are people whom you cant relate with interests and hobbies. I also believe in what you just quoted. Happy mylotting !
