It's easy to let little things like saying "yes" to a project you really didn't want to do, or by spreading that juicy piece of gossip around, until it all comes barreling at you leaving you feeling emotionally and physically drained.
We are literally the sum of the people we surround ourselves with. If a majority of the people you surround yourself with are gossips and liars, then guess what! So are you!
If you surround yourself with people that settle for mediocre and do the least they have to , then so are you.
If you surround yourself with those that use people because they can, then so do you.
Ouch, that one kinda stung didn't it?
