I am me; I am not anyone else; I am not the same person as those I might hang out with; we are separate individuals. His or her thoughts may be very different than my thoughts.
I don't think it would, but if a person were ashamed of who they were hanging out with that would reflect something inside of themselves and not necessarily that other person.
I believe it's you are what you think about the most.
Those you hang with influence either overtly or subconsciously what your personal choices are... People wanna be like and liked by their friends and change their behavior to match them, even if the bahavior is stupid.... That's why riots get so big so quickly, "All my buddies were doing it, I didn't wanna be called a *****!"
You cannot soar like an eagle if you hang out with turkeys.
Yeah turkeys are turkeys and eagles are eagles
