The key to knowing who’s in your cheering section comes down to evaluating the impact the people in your life have had on your life. You assess how they made you feel about yourself, whether they encouraged you to better yourself or hindered you, and whether they abused you or treated you with kindness.
Did they have your back or throw you under the bus? Were they there with you when the chips were down, or did they disappear at the first sign of trouble?
That’s the criteria you look at to find out who’s got you. Sadly, so many ignore this.
