They say that ...when you find yourself, try to become a better person all your shitty friend ...well, they will be gone. God will not allow you to work on you, let you get better and heal and keep bad friends that influence you the wrong way. that is not going to happen.
True story. One morning at the beginning of June I woke up stressed and anxious. All of a sudden calm washed over me when I was hit by a thought. I have a choice of worrying or doing everything I can to take care of the things I can control and let life (or God) take care of the rest. This has been the most productive time of my life, also the happiest.
