Settling for the best

“Don’t expect positive changes in your life if you surround yourself with negative people. Don’t give part-time friends a full-time position in your life. Know your own value and what you have to offer — and never settle for treatment that is less than what you deserve.” ~Marc Chernoff, Marc & Angel Hack Life
