Your voice is meant to be heard, and your development is intended to be protected. It is not worth it to lower your guard and give in at the expense of some good character you have been building for a long. You should rise above the temptations of friends and family. It’s your life that matters, and not their views about who you are. 

You did not come this far just for the sake. So, it is worth protecting your values, your character, and your morals, even if it means losing your friends and sometimes family. Get some tools and tricks to protect and maintain who you are, no matter your environment.

Join the conversation with your host, Jay Chase, as he shares what to do, how to do it, and how to maintain your personal and character development during this holiday and with friends. You may be recovering from an addiction to something, and this festive season can make you lower your guard. Learn some tips on what to do and what not to do.

Notable Quotes
