Way back (yes WAY back) when I was in high school I remember her telling me, "you should be a better person because of those you hang around and they should be better for knowing you."
I've thought about this over and over and over and over. This is one of those little gems that is applicable your entire life.
Look around your life. Do you make a positive impression on those you spend time with? Family and friends? Neighbors and colleagues? Husbands and kids? Do you raise them up or knock them down?

If you answer no... to either question, perhaps it is time for a change?
