We need to feed and grow our positive connections and stave and shrink our negative connections. Of course the trick is knowing which are good connections and which are not.
We can often be fooled by thinking longevity is the same as a positive connection. We have friends and family that we’ve know for a long time and we are hesitant to break the connections under the misguide belief that because we’ve had the connection for a long time we need to maintain it. This is not the case.
