IF YOU LAY WITH DOGS, YOU GET UP WITH FLEAS
Associating with bad company will most definitely yield negative consequences.
You should be cautious of the company you keep. Associating with those of low reputation may not only lower your own, but it may also lead you astray.
The unscrupulous can be toxic and toxicity can produce or impair: 1. Fear 2. Admission of Wrong 3. Avoidance 4. Neediness & Self Sufficiency 5. Vision & Manipulation
It is hopeful that we can discern who is in our lives, be they there accidentally or providentially. We know that if you waller with pigs, you get dirty. It is unavoidable! We also know that bad associations spoil useful habits; that birds of the same feather flock together; and of course, if we lay with dogs, we get up with fleas.
It is not what we know. It is what we are willing to do with what we know! The choices are ours to make. We must choose wisely!
