Really appreciate the response, Gonzalez.
There’s a lot of wisdom behind those words, at least I feel so, and they come at a good time for me — so thanks.

Interesting perspective on influence, I’ve never thought of it like that. Depends who they are and how they act I suppose, with regard to if they’re going to assist in your evolution — either way, positive or negative I guess if you’ve got the right perspective you’ll allow yourself to learn and grow.
Love that second last sentence, great wording, took a a couple of reads to soak up the meaning.
