Delphic Maxim of the Week 9/25
Good morning everyone. This week’s Delphic Maxim is Κακίας ἀπέχου (Shun Evil).
“It is said that a person of good character shuns people of bad character. When you can chose your company, avoid bad people, for the company you chose will either elevate you or drag you down. This is of course especially the case with evil people and criminals, but it goes down to more mundane things: negative people, who drag everyone down, people who are always sarcastic and value nothing, people who love to mock, and without any respect have to slander people. Beware people who are so mean spirited, even when it seems like small things. Over time it may drag you down to their level, or at the best they drain you of energy you need to get back to a more positive level. Learn to identify people who drag you down, either confront them about it, or, should that be fruitless, avoid their company. Shun bad people.”
