    Our Environment

    Our environment is controllable by us. We decide who we hang around with. We can decide the people we cultivate as friends. Also, we select which acquaintances we go back to. For the most part, these people influence us. This influence can be bad and lead us into evil deeds. The choice is ours to change our environment to friends who will help us get ahead instead getting into trouble or stunt our progress.

    Along with choosing the right friends, we create situations. Often we have to decide between the lesser of two evils. Our companions place us in these dilemmas. Some may be new friends or buddies from our high school days. We need to decide now what environment we want to live with. If we fail to follow the evil ones into their questionable behavior, they will drop us which will help us.

    Another way we produce our environment is by where we choose to go. We can go to entertainment where liquor and beer flow freely or buy tickets to cultural performances. So we consciously or unconsciously choose our own environment.
