Impact of Friends
The birds of the same feather flock together. In life, we tend to get attracted and be friendly with those who have similar habits and characteristics as ours. e.g. smokers, drinkers, gamblers etc. The habitual cribber find a happy company amongst other cribbers. Similarly those enjoy exercise, run marathon, go hiking are drawn to those who have similar inclinations.
The positives attract positives and the negatives attract negatives. Opposites attract is largely in case of gender attraction.
The rain drops from the sky: If it is caught in hands, is pure enough to drink. If it falls in gutter its value drops to no use. It falls on hot surfaces, it perishes. If falls on lotus leaf, it shines like pearl and finally if it falls on oyster, it becomes a pearl. The drop is same, but its existence and worth depends on surroundings that it lands in.
We should consciously prefer and try to be associated with people who are good at heart. If you lie down with dogs, you will rise up with fleas.
Keep the good company and behave like oyster and help turn your friends a shining highly valuable pearl
Light has no shadow. Be the light to all your friends
