We’ve all heard the phrase “judged by the company you keep.” But what exactly does that mean? If you simply hang around with someone, is that enough to get you labeled with their faults?
And, conversely, if you hang around with people with great reputations, does that mean you slide by if you’re not exactly squeaky clean? I’m guessing you already know the answer to that one is mostly “no”. But, it may at least make people rethink any previous negative conclusions about you.
