But there are friends you who may turn out to be bad influences and can lead you astray. Then there are friends who can inspire you and propel you to achieve great heights. So how do you distinguish the good from the bad ? In this respect, young people must learn to think for themselves. Reflect constantly on events, people and ideas. Learn to see through people. Hold on to sound moral values and principles. These will definitely help you discriminate the good from the 'bad'.
