well thats your problem and if thats the case you do need new friends , not everyone is in that situation though so you can speak on others behalf
my circle helps me advance. i run with doctors, lawyers, businessmen, people in the government, law enforcement, etc. these are the people i have been running with for sometime now. and the best part in or opinions we are advancing and trying to pull people up with us, you dont need "new friends" for that
I stand by my words and everything I've said.
Your post makes it seem as if my reasoning is due to the people I've grown up with and that only has a small part to do with it. You can learn anything from anyone.
