Here’s one of my struggles with being a teen and having friends. One of my friends may not like the other friend so I can’t invite all of my friends over at one time. I love having friends, but I hate having to pick and choose between my friends. My dad always tells me, “association brings about assimilation”. My mom says, “birds of a feather flock together”. They are basically saying that I am who I associate with.
Friends can help you because they can keep you on the straight and narrow. Help you to do right when you’re attempting to do wrong. So called friends can hurt you by not telling you what’s right. So called friends think it’s fun to do wrong and they really don’t care about rules or getting into trouble. Not being able to fit in with a certain group is not always bad because some groups aren’t meant for us.
