Let go of the people who dull your shine, poison your spirit, and bring you drama. (Steve Maraboli, motivational speaker and author)

They are the people who may be close friends or more distant colleagues, and they may appear to be trying to help. But, their advice and influence are hindering rather than helping. Maraboli says, “Cancel your subscription to their issues.” People who advance their own causes while hindering ours should be avoided. Seek companions who graciously encourage.

Do not be misled: “Bad company corrupts good character” (1 Corinthians 15:33).
