You might think that negative comments or power plays by other people have nothing to do with you, but their dramas have been holding you back whether you realize it or not. It could be a case of guilt by association, so take a good long look at who you're hanging out with right now. Are they acting in a way that makes you proud -- or makes you cringe? If you feel the need to get some distance, do it sooner rather than later. Stand on your own, and protect your reputation.
