I always have feelings that I surrounded by wrong people and it uncomfortable for me.
When I was a teenager, I read from the magazine that you're the average of the 5 people who you spend your time with. I didn't understand that until I grew older and made a lot of definitely wrong choices staying in the places where I am totally uncomfortable. It's kind of late to realize that it's a not a saying about pointing out the truth of who you are, but advice about you have to be responsible for the environment and people you live with because it's your choice to be average of them.
When did I find that I surrounded by wrong people? I think it's about two years ago that I ask myself the question: is there someone you want to be in this office room? My answer is no!! No one around me from students to teachers whose life and career I admire. I knew that before but I didn't know how's it matter to me, I didn't care about others' life. As a result, my arrogance teaches me a lesson. I have to pay for that.
Online communities used to be a life-saver for me, now it's time to back to the offline reality. I'll say, "I don't want to be your average, leave me alone."
