At a point, you would realize that to live for yourself is to make more enemies. People align with you if they are either gaining something from you or able to manipulate you for their own gains.
Your friends are your most assured connections, believe it or not. Most people up there have been fortunate to have kept at least a friend with purpose…
You can’t keep what you are not ready for; money, relationship, opportunities, love, greatness, Fame etc. The power to make what you have lasting depends on how ready you are for it.
There is a clear difference between “I wish I did” and “Thank God I did” and the ball is in your court to choose which statement you want to end your life with.
