When you are trying to progress in life, you can’t do it alone. But you are better of doing it alone then being around people who will not help you. You have to evaluate your circle and see who deserves to be there and who may need to make an exit. It doesnt mean that you dont care for them, but that you care more about yourself. Many times we are too busy trying to mainatin people status in our lives that it is holding us back to go to the next level in our lives. Dont become held back because you trying to hold on.
