The saying that birds of a feather flock together has been a common narrative from time immemorial. It is also validated since most of the time, a lot of people who have similar qualities tend to stick together. If you are into books, you will most likely attract your fellow nerds, gamers attract gamers, cheaters attract cheaters, and that becomes the circle of life.

You do not have to be a liar because your mother is the queen in that department, lying through her teeth all day every day.

They choose what energy to absorb and what not to absorb. There is a choice to pick all the good qualities and rid yourself of the dirty linen. Being a good or bad person does not trickle down to whom you associate with, rather it is centred on what you believe in as a person. Therefore, let us not be a crowd that justifies wickedness due to lineage or friendship circles. It looks rather basic and makes you look ignorant and really, ignorance has such an ugly face.
