Over your life you will continue to grow as a person based on your experiences and social interactions. Through this growth it is fundamental to train your brain to stay alert, to be aware of who you surround yourself with, to reflect on what you devote your time to and ask yourself 'is this bringing good into my life?'. Life is an enigmatic journey and through your endeavours you must have an open heart and mind to learning. Learning from your mistakes and taking the good from the bad will bring you great change.
Trust the way life is happening, every day you have the chance to grow into someone else and face the world the way you want. One simple decision can have such a complex outcome and you must be willing to endure that to achieve change. For example, moving friendship groups can be about sticking it out and then fast forward two months and you feel the benefits.
