Whoever isolates himself seeks his own desire; he breaks out against all sound judgment.
Having a group of close friends to rely on is essential. Without friends who will be honest with you and who you can be honest with, you’re left to your own counsel. I can certainly relate. In 2011, we lost nearly everything. Many friends turned their backs on us because participation in our circumstances was too much. I retained a few friends, who became my closest. Without fellowship with a core group of friends, you’ll be subjected to bad advice, your own.
