Don’t Spend Major Time With Minor People

Post placeholder image

I told a work colleague a couple weeks ago that I didn’t want to be friends worse yet date someone who didn’t help enrich/add value to my life and he thought I was being harsh. But apparently, others feel the same. Below is a chain email forwarded to me. The tone is a bit too religious for me, but I do agree with the basic message.

Don’t spend major time with minor people. If there are people in your life that continually disappoint you, break promises, stomp on your dreams, too judgmental, have different values and don’t have your back during difficult times…that is not a friend.
To have a friend, be a friend. Sometimes in life as you grow, your friends will either grow or go. Surround yourself with people who reflect values, goals interests and lifestyle.
When I think of any of my successes, I am thankful to GOD from whom all blessings flow, and to my family and friends that enrich my life.
Over the years my phone book has changed because I changed for the better. At first you think you’re going to be alone, but after a while new people show up in your life that make your life so much sweeter and easier to endure.
Remember what your elders used to say, “Birds of a feather flock together. If you’re an eagle, don’t hang around chickens: Chickens Can’t Fly!
I love the Lord and thank Him for all that he does in my life, therefore, I’m passing this on. Yes I do love Jesus. He is my source of existence and Savior. He keeps me functioning each and everyday. Without Him, I will be nothing.
Without Him, I am nothing but with Him I can do all things. Phil 4:13
If you love Jesus, share this message with other people and the person that sent it to you!!!!!! Be Positive – Be Progressive – Take the time to make a positive difference in someone’s life.
Walk by faith, Not by sight
Receive God’s blessings
Heal the past; live the present; dream the future.

    A note from Cranky Chick
    My comment kept getting rejected for “questionable content”, but I wanted to support your position on that particular post by saying:
    The guy who thought you were being “harsh” is obviously someone with very little in the way of standards. I get tired of the “judge not” crowd. I say, judge me! Hold me to some degree of accountability for my actions. If we don’t hold people to a particular standard… if we continue to accept ANY behavior as “Ok” even when it has negative consequences on us, then our planet will continue this slow descent into chaos and mayhem. Whatever your values… whatever your standards… I say you are better than the person who has none at all.
