We all need healthy people in our lives. They are the people that will get us far. We want people that will help us, not put us back into the dark place that we were in before. We need people that will be there for us no matter what!
Most of the time you have a few people that will only be there in the good times. When the bad times come—boom, they are gone! You don't want that kind of friend at all; they are no good for you.
It is good to have friends that are better than you are, because they can shine the light into your darkness. That will help you find the light in your own life. (There is a light in your life! It isn't all bad!)
If you have two unhealthy people together, things can only end badly. They will get into stuff they shouldn't. When you have a healthy friend to tell you, “Hey, Maggie, maybe you shouldn't do that,” it helps a lot because it makes you rethink what you're about to do. You say to yourself, “If my friend says I shouldn't, maybe they are right.” Your good friends will only want the best for you! They never want something bad to happen to you. What about a bad friend? Chances are, they just won't care what happens to you.
We should fill our lives with healthy people! They are better for us in the long run.
