She warned me about her friend that likes knowing everything that goes on in her life
To a point where the friend will throw a tantrum if she’s not kept in the loop about developments.
‘Why do you keep such a person in your inner circle?’ I asked, puzzled.
‘Oh, she’s really nice, you just have to know how to manage her.’
I was confused, but let the matter rest because it just wasn’t my place, but I knew this was a toxic situation.
We are often reminded that the devil comes to steal, kill and destroy.
And he oftentimes will use the people around us to do just that.
So we have to be wise about those people that we let close.
Some people are in your life just to compete with you.
Some people are in your life to take as much as they can and make themselves better.
Some people are in your life just to say they know you, and they will bail on you as soon as you are done serving this purpose.
As iron sharpens iron, so one person sharpens another.
Walk with the wise and become wise, for a companion of fools suffers harm.
Wounds from a friend can be trusted, but an enemy multiplies kisses.
Many Proverbs on association.
Be brutal about protecting the energy around yourself
It can be the difference between life and death
