A purposeless relationship or an undefined relationship is subject to abuse.
Lack of self definition leads to competition, so do not be agitated by someone else’ praise.
You must know that not all relationships are of equal value, therefore check your relationship. If you are surrounded by “takers”, you will go bankrupt. Therefore, you must build meaningful friendships. The more you know people, the more you know who to connect with.
If you don’t know who you are, you will fight those who know their worth.
